“The solution provider for the control and switchgear engineering value chain” is how Rittal presented itself at the SPS IPC Drives automation trade fair in Nuremberg this week. Rittal & EPLAN took customers to the world renowned exhibition where the highlight was the presentation of the new VX25 large enclosure system under the motto of “System Perfection”.
Uwe Scharf, Executive Vice President at Rittal said: “At SPS IPC Drives 2018, we prove that Rittal has consistently thought its way beyond individual products and into the value chain of control and switchgear engineering. These integrated solutions offer tangible benefits such as high cost-effectiveness, speed and innovation,” the head of the Industry Business Unit added.
Attendees spent time at the EPLAN stand where they got to experience how digitalisation is the driving force behind efficient engineering and is the base for a smooth production integration. In the era of Industry 4.0 and big data, companies can only secure their competitiveness by continually having high-quality data available along their value chains.
Maximising their visit to Germany, the attendees visited the new Rittal Innovation Center in Haiger. The centre provides a very special insight into the value chains of control and switchgear manufacturing. In the 1,200-m² building, the enclosure and system provider is emulating an actual manufacturing operation. It is a place that brings together customers and developers from Rittal and Eplan, giving them the opportunity to discuss all process steps directly at stations that are outfitted with machinery and tools, based on specific everyday situations. They can then develop solutions ranging from engineering, material delivery, component preparation and processing and right through to the finished product.
We would like to thank everyone who attended with us and we hope you had a great experience.
