Smart Script – Reliable Time-Saving Marking for All Control Cabinet Components
Range, variety, flexibility: Making markers as durable as possible is a start, but control cabinet marking has long required much more than just that. In the course of Industry 4.0, complexity is increasing, as are the demands on software and hardware. Networking of machines and systems is constantly increasing, more and more components from different manufacturers are in use, and more information has to be accommodated in less installation space.
In the age of digitization, reliable, standardized marking can cost manufacturers a lot of time – and money! A 2017 study of the Institute for Control Engineering of Machine Tools and Manufacturing Units (ISW) of the University of Stuttgart looked at these costs and investigated the potential for automation and digitization in control cabinet and switchgear manufacturing in conventional mechanical engineering. One of the results was that marking within control cabinets is the second biggest time factor, after wiring.
