I have not had any issues mounting the drives vertical for optimal cooling is important.
This is one I have started to work on with drives not mounted.
I am going to add a fan directly above the space for the drives at the top side of the box per the manual.

Do I understand right, that there isn't need for such shielding (haven't seen none of pictures where something like that are made as manual are succeeding) and when do do that there isn't good way to cool drives.

I've added a bit more to the enclosure now

I'm hoping adding metal walls for shielding is not required.
I have had cooling issue with Lams when not installed per the instructions so I have a fan per their specs.
Elsewhere the manual shows using a lot of fuses on high voltage power to the drives.

I made a similar enclosure with the same toroid previously driving ethercat drives and had no problems with noise. It was in a smaller case so it was more cramped!

I will use 5 pin connectors for motors and will bring the cable shield inside on one so it can be terminated on the driver. I have also given some thought to cable layout and will keep mains, stepper motor power and logic apart.
I also have a high quality mains filter on the IEC connector.

I might add that when talking to the Australian distributor he said that Lam always promoted absolute best practice so it is possible to take shortcuts at your own risk  :)
