Manufacturers of control cabinets and switchgear have been facing various challenges for a long time. In addition to a chronic shortage of trained professionals, one must also contend with cost and time pressures for delivery and testing, customer expectations for flexibility and change management, and keeping up with industry sectors such as climate neutrality, sustainability and the circular economy new requirements. In addition, there is a need to meet increasingly customized solutions, often with flexible series production.
For many years, Weidmuller has been supporting the industry with mature solutions and innovative engineering concepts, such as the Weidmuller configurator WMC, to meet different needs. This time, becoming part of the Eplan partner network, the expansion of cooperation with Eplan aims to achieve a very clear goal: to improve data quality, expand data modules, and achieve efficient automated control cabinet manufacturing.
In order to achieve this goal, the two parties cooperated with the aim of integrating their respective interfaces and data modules as much as possible. Therefore, the two parties have reached a technical partnership in 2022 and joined the Eplan partner network, which was announced at the Hannover Messe a few days ago.
