Calculating the value of automation

Published:  21 July, 2017

Rittal_Newsletter_image.jpgWhen it comes to processing panels, CNC machining centres, such as Perforex from RITTAL AUTOMATION SYSTEMS, are said to be light years ahead of the alternative, manual approach when it comes to productivity and efficiency. In fact, machining centres can speed up processing by as much as 66% compared to the traditional hand-tooled method.

Rittal says now, a new web-based Return on Investment (ROI) Calculator helps customers accurately gauge how quickly a Perforex will take to pay for itself before they place the order – and they may be pleasantly surprised by what they find. Perforex machining centres from Rittal Automation Systems are tailored to the challenges of switchgear manufacturing and are said to be ideal for the automated production of bore holes, cut-outs and threads in mounting plates, enclosure doors and side panels.

Rittal says 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.
