Winter may be the focus of the hugely popular TV drama Game of Thrones (now, of course, ended with its final season) but in the real world the mercury is rising, and we will soon be firmly into summer.
To the untrained eye, electrical enclosures can come across as very uniform, standardised products. However, enclosure companies such as Spelsberg must be adaptable when it comes to meeting specific customer requirements within a short timeframe.
The new Rittal plant in Haiger embraces the principles of Industry 4.0. The company has made its largest single investment, totalling €250 million, to establish the world’s most advanced facility for its new compact and small enclosures.
Your new industrial electronic product has been designed and the board components specified. It has been prototyped, either on a development board to check functionality and performance or laid out on a final PCB design.
According to the Gabriel Consulting Group 2011 the Data Centre Security Survey concluded that more than 60 percent of all malicious attacks on datacentres are by insiders – contrary to what one might think from all the clamour about electronic data protection.
Whether in private life or professional life, there are scarcely any activities or services that don’t depend on a datacentre somewhere down the line.
Hardware for specialist vehicles including rail carriages, buses, coaches, horseboxes, caravans, motorhomes, fire trucks and other emergency/rescue vehicles, even gondoliers on public “eye” type Ferris wheels, all have many special needs in common.
Rittal’s VX25 enclosure was recently put through its paces by technicians from the Schaper Group.
There’s no denying the enormous impact Industry 4.0 is having on technology, manufacturing and business. MiniTec is a company that is embracing the fast-changing developments. Not only are they enabling their own manufacturing process to become smarter, but they are also manufacturing solutions to allow other businesses to become smarter too.
