A Simplified and More Efficient Way to Manufacture Electrical Control Panels

November 17, 2020

Panel builders operate in exceedingly tough competitive markets, which mean that reducing time spent on designs and excluding errors and reworks – in other words – keeping costs down – is of paramount importance. But, how can you meet this challenge? If these are just a few of your issues, then there is a solution:

  •    –   Increasing price pressure
  •    –   Shortage of skilled labour
  •    –   Pressure to reduce delivery times
  •    –   Ineffective workflows and quality issues
  •    –   Requirement to reduce scrap
  •    –   How to increase productivity
  •    –   How to simplify the production of panels

By closely working with our customers, Eplan has benchmarked several panel and machine builders by evaluating workflows and the time taken to produce a single unit, and has found that the majority of panel builders are working manually. Therefore, there is need for further action to shift from manual to semi-automated engineering. By introducing automation technologies and integrating engineering and production processes, panel builders can benefit from an increase in productivity, shorter project turnaround times, cost savings and improvements in product quality.

We are offering FREE ASSESSMENTS to panel builders which aims to identify bottlenecks in design and manufacturing, and with the information we have collected from the aforementioned customer study, we can advise on how you can save time, reduce scrap and simplify the production of panels dramatically. The free assessment includes:

  •    –   Business Assessment: We’ll use the algorithm based on our benchmark to help our customers understand their operations by analysing their business and identifying challenges and opportunities. We’ll also identify the areas in which there are bottlenecks, where there are losses which result in time and money lost and the possible optimisation potential for different areas on the shop floor.

  •    –   Savings Potential: We’ll suggest ways in which to optimise your workflow and reveal the cost and time savings that can be expected.

  •    –   Scope of Improvement: We’ll outline the deliverables of what is needed to implement the change successfully.

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
