Appellant asserts that Brander is a monolithic structure and argues  that this claim limitation requires that the mounting enclosure be formed  from a plurality of pieces (id.). However, we agree with the Examiner that  as a product claim, even as a product-by-process claim, the structure is not limited by the method of manufacture (Ans. 8). See Greenliant Sys., Inc. v.  Xicor LLC, 692 F.3d 1261, 1268 (Fed. Cir. 2012) ("'[i]n determining  validity of a product-by-process claim, the focus is on the product and not the process of making it."). Further, nothing in the claim language, or Specification, limits the meaning of "portions" to pre-assembly portions.
