According to the study “Panel building 4.0“ by the Institute for Control Engineering of Machine Tools and Manufacturing Units of the University of Stuttgart in classic panel building, 72 % of the working time in the installation phase is required for wiring and mechanical assembly.
The Weidmüller Wire Processing Center (WPC) addresses exactly these issues. The software-controlled, semi-automated cable assembly accelerates the production process considerably and at the same time ensures the highest quality standards.
The use of automatic machines decreases processing times and thus contributes to a general increase in manufacturing process efficiency.
In the system approach, individual components of the WPC can be removed from the process sequence or they can be used in their individual functions in stand-alone mode.
Consistently high quality through the use of semi-automated machines.
The market offers panel builders a wide array of solutions for cable assembly ranging from manual to fully automated. Participants in the study “Panel building 4.0“ see the highest potential for improvement and savings in the installation phase in solutions aimed at standardization and the preassembly of cables.
Weidmüllers Wire Processing Center ticks all these boxes and more. For a medium sized investment panel builders received a semi-automated solution with a modular concept. It can be easily integrated into existing manufacturing processes, while providing maximum flexibility. Additionally panel builders profit from reduced time expenditure and receive excellent quality results.
