Calculating the Value of Automation

When it comes to processing panels, CNC machining centres, such as Perforex from Rittal Automation Systems, are rital1-(1).jpglight years ahead of the alternative, manual approach when it comes to productivity and efficiency.

Perforex machining centres from Rittal Automation Systems are tailored to the challenges of switchgear manufacturing. They are ideal for the automated production of bore holes, cut-outs and threads in mounting plates, enclosure doors and side panels.

All the mechanical processing steps in the preparation of enclosures for population – including drilling, thread cutting, and milling of cut-outs – which are so time-consuming, cost-intensive, and error prone, can be accomplished in a single work step.

Programming a job into the machining centre takes just minutes, and is either on the basis of simple, component-oriented workshop programming, or using imported CAD data from either Rittal’s software system Eplan or DXF imports from any other CAD platforms.  Any programme setting can be saved for future, identical jobs, speeding up work-flow even more. Furthermore, once done, engineers are free to work on other tasks, maximising team efficiency and business output. 

Perforex systems are suitable for all materials typically found in switchgear, including steel, aluminium, copper and plastics.

Moreover, an automatic tool changer allows multiple tasks to be performed in a single operation, without the need for human intervention.

Work Out Your ROI – at the Click of a Mouse

The new Rittal online calculator demonstrates how a Perforex system can deliver a rapid and tangible return on investment even for low production volumes.

Customers simply enter the typical manufacturing quantity, current machining cycle time, and labour rates per hours, and the web-based tool computes the corresponding payback period for a variety of Perforex models.
