Watch the video to see how the Perforex BC is fully automated, fast, precise, and reliable for modifying enclosures.
This new video showcases Perforex machines in action as they deliver fully automated, fast and precise modifications. System integrators and distributors will save time and money through automated drilling, thread-tapping, and milling of doors, roof plates, side panels, gland plates or complete unibody enclosures.
All materials commonly used in panel building such as steel, stainless steel, aluminium, copper and plastic may be machined very cost-effectively. Users also benefit from significantly enhanced precision.
Test the new communication solutions for the field and control panel.
Top performance thanks to strong communication:
SIRIUS ACT with PROFINET connects push buttons and signaling devices directly with the controller and HMI devices via PROFINET - including safety functions, with engineering and commissioning being simplified by the TIA Portal. Additional benefits include uniform data management, shorter downtimes thanks to faster fault diagnostics and option handling, which can be used to flexibly design plants and systems and even modify them during operation.
The quick and easy route to peak performance:
• Efficient PLC integration
• Reduced wiring outlay - fewer sources of error during installation and commissioning
• Quick installation with flat ribbon cable without special tools
• High degree of flexibility
- Additional 4 digital inputs, 1 digital output (DI, DQ) and 1 analog input (AI)
- Modular and...
It's plain to see why you need Rittal's Deep-Hinged Window Kit.
Rittal is proud to announce the latest enhancement to our product portfolio - Deep Hinged Window Kits (WKDH). WKDH is used as a viewing window where access to components behind the window is required. It is designed to protect HMI displays, pushbuttons and other components mounted on the door of an enclosure from the outside environment. It fits on the usable area of Rittal's freestanding and wallmount enclosures.
Deep Hinged Window Kits are available in seven standard sizes, across three material types - Carbon , 304 and 316L stainless steel. The overall depth of the window kit allows for extra deep pushbuttons to be used. All products come with a full-size drilling template for easy mounting.
Rittal's WKDH is FTTA UL Listed and rated for UL Type 4/3R/12 for carbon steel and UL Type 4X/3R/12 for stainless steel.
As a machine builder and equipment supplier, you know that the requirements placed with regard to motors and drives are continuously increasing. You are used to obtaining components from Siemens, which allow you to fulfill these requirements. However, the following also applies: Increased power respectively an enhanced functionality of their components opens up new possibilities for you, which allows you to improve your products, plants and systems, offer your customers added value, and expand your market position.
This can only be implemented at reasonable expense to a certain extent within a device generation. One day you will be confronted with limits which can no longer be surpassed using existing technology, but require a new approach to be applied.
Regarding Siemens' proving MICROMASTER drives, this point has already been reached. They have therefore decided to replace the MICROMASTER drives by systems belonging to the current...
Assembly and Quality Testing are two applications where Robotiq's products offer and impressive return on investment for clients and potential customers.

Generative design meets mesh modeling to advance reverse engineering to the next level.
The future of 3D product design software is available now with Solid Edge generative modeling, additive manufacturing and reverse engineering capabilities. Enabled by unique Siemens convergent modeling technology, these capabilities work alongside traditional Solid Edge editing tools to seamlessly integrate existing products into your development process.
Optimize products for minimal mass with goal driven generative design, and further modify the components using reverse engineering. Finalize your parts by tapping into additive manufacturing processes- either 3D print them yourself or access an online network of services.
Supplementing powerful design tools with topology optimization, generative design speeds creation of lighter components perfectly suited for immediate manufacture via today’s additive processes. Or use...
Industry 4.0 is about seamless data flow all across the company, from the machines on the factory floor to the ERP and the order-shipping-billing system in the office floor, and even to people and systems outside the company. The question is, how to preserve transparent data communication flows, while ensuring cybersecurity?
The answer is an industrial firewall which will filter allowed and forbidden traffic. That way, precisely those communication channels can be filtered, that are an intrusion-hazard for Trojans, bots and viruses.
The mbNETFIX is exactly that kind of industrial firewall, especially designed for the automation industry. A special feature is the integrated learning function. The firewall learns the data traffic and the user is able to directly and explicitly release or block the connections of each IP-unit out of a learned packet chart.
Contamination can be tough on your linear actuators. Airborne contaminants can work their way into crevices, causing premature wear and shortening your actuator’s life. Some solutions, like polyurethane seal strips, boast 100 percent protection from particulates as small as 10 microns in diameter. But in harsher environments, dust and debris can still find their way in.
Depending on the application, it’s important to know how to best protect your actuators from contaminants. There are several options to consider.
Seal Strips And Bellows:
Some actuators, like the ones in Rollon’s Actuator Line, contain built-in seal strips to protect the internal components from debris. Made from polyurethane, the strips in the ELM, Robot, and TH series conform to the contour of the aluminum profile to prevent foreign particulates, with a diameter of 10 to 1,000 microns, from getting inside. To protect the entire travel surface of the actuator, you can also use optional...
