The direct production integration depends very much on the automation degree. Here we present you a bundle of offers from the link to labelling systems up to the direct communication with machines for the wire mass-production and bundling. For your convenience, all these links can be called directly from your CAE system.
You can find further details on the individual production solutions on the internet sides of the manufacturers:
Phoenix Contact: CLIP PROJECT
CLIP PROJECT, the software for terminal strip projecting, enables simple creation of terminal strips including labelling, bridges, accessories and error correction. In co-operation with the AUCOTEC systems, rationalization potentials are used along the entire process chain from the creation of circuit diagrams to the construction of the terminal strip.
Phoenix Contact: CMS-MARK-WIN
The integrated interface for the labelling software CMS-MARK-WIN of Phoenix Contact can also be used for fast and easy labelling of terminal strips.
The software solution for individual marking of terminals, devices and conductors with plotters. Suitable for neutral markings, Weidmüller has developed a complete hard and software program. The software M-Print supports marking just in time.
In cooperation with Weidmüller, Aucotec AG in Hanover has developed a new XML-based interface. For the first time it enables a bidirectional data exchange between E-CAE systems and the terminal configurator RailDesigner. This possibility can already be used by the latest Aucotec product generation Engineering Base (EB). With the object-oriented and database-driven planning tool, using the new interface users can now perfectly design terminal strips "in a twinkling of an eye" and then pass them on directly from EB to the terminal strip and housing configurator from Weidmüller. Thus the customer gains planning reliability and clarity for the design of terminal strips that are to be individually produced. His quotation and ordering processes are considerably simplified, costs are reduced.
Wago: ProServe Software smartDESIGNER, SCRIPT
The smartDESIGNER turns the rail mounted terminal blocks ready for use. With special convenience for the individuals jobs, such as automatic completion and testing the rail mounted terminal blocks, working with own part numbers of the individual management of favourites. The terminal designation with WAGO SCRIPT minimizes the expenses also for very special labellings, even with optimum printing results.
WinLabel - the Professional Tool for label and card printings. The Zweckform software is a professional design and print software enabling a very simple designing and printing.
Metzner: Triathlon Work-Center
The TRIATHLON Work-Center is a completely integrated wiring system for the cabinet and control construction which can be used from the planning stage up to the lead ready-for-laying. The production system is composed of several coordinated hardware and software components. The centre of the system solution is the program TRIATHLON-Soft which accepts the basic data of the cabinet from the CAE system. This data is then transferred online as production order to the TRIATHLON Work-Center. Apart from the starting and destination designation, any texts can be placed on the leads. Periphery modules enable automatic fixing of contact sleeves and a defined laying of leads.
The overall concept for fast and easy wiring in the cabinet construction – automatic preparation of all wires. The principle of manufacturing wires using the bundle technology enables to considerably minimize the wiring times and to reduce costs.
