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 52% of the working time in planning is required for project planning and circuit design. Interruptions in data flow from manual alterations increase the risk of errors being introduced. This can have significant consequences on the required production time.
Weidmüller's software solutions provide a comprehensive solution to this problem. They offer valuable support to increase efficiency and productivity. Not only do they save considerable time and money, they also provide digital data continuity with the benefit of simple data handling via CAE interfaces.
With CAE interfaces and plausibility checks Weidmüller software provide a comprehensive solution to increase efficiency and productivity in panel building.
Digital data consistency and seamless marking of all panel components simplify and speed up maintenance work. This helps reduce downtime and increase the operating efficiency of your processes.
Eliminating manual work steps through digital data reduces the risk of errors and guarantees access to existing templates at all times. This ensures the complete documentation of the individual production steps—from planning through to commissioning of the fully and clearly marked panel.
Using M-Print® PRO, planning software WPC tool and Weidmüller Configurator (WMC) data is gathered digitally from the beginning of the process and made available for all subsequent steps. The plausibility check of the Weidmüller software prevents errors in planning that cost a lot of time and money during installation.
CAE interfaces make data available quickly and easily in the most common engineering environments.
By accessing the data created during the planning phase, the error rate is significantly reduced, as no information is lost between the individual work steps and manual processing is not required.
Thanks to digital data continuity, you receive a clearly marked panel. In addition, the comprehensive documentation speeds up commissioning and maintenance work, since each production step can be traced and configurations can also be reproduced easily when required. A decisive advantage in the demanding project business.
At first glance it may appear remarkable: The choice of tools, cabinet infrastructure, and marking systems has a direct influence on process times and quality levels in panel building. Sebastian Gormanns, Managing Director of Schaltanlagenbau Gormanns GmbH, explains how complete workplace solutions, from a partner that is at home in the world of panel building, benefits his business.
Professional industrial marking systems play an important role in the failure free operation of industry plants and are also beneficial for the efficient and safe maintenance of systems. Weidmüller calls this "Systemized Marking". Systemized marking is based upon the foundation of the intuitive software M-Print® PRO. With a single software package it is possible to produce marking and signage for all applications conforming to the industry standards.
