EPLAN Pro Panel and Rittal Perforex: A winning combination!

07 October 2019

When power distribution specialist Burnell Switchgear and Control needed help with increasing productivity to cope with its fast-growing order book, the company approached EPLAN for advice.

The EPLAN engineers soon discovered that not only would EPLAN Pro Panel CAE software deliver big savings in engineering and design time, but a Rittal Perforex fully automated machining centre would bring equally significant time savings for production operations.

After looking at the company’s requirements, the EPLAN engineers suggested that they should visit the Rittal Innovation Centre in Germany, so that they could see firsthand the benefits of EPLAN Pro Panel, and also the Rittal Perforex machining centre.

EPLAN Pro Panel enables engineers to design and layout switchgear and control panels. It handles all wiring, component mounting and busbar configuration details, and produces 3D views so that engineers and customers can see exactly what the finished panels will look like, even before work begins on building them.

“While we were at the Rittal Innovation Centre in Germany, we checked out the Rittal Perforex machining centre, which automatically drills holes and cuts apertures in enclosures, doors and mounting plates, using data generated by EPLAN Pro Panel,” said Piotr, “and, having seen the machine in action, it wasn’t difficult to decide that we needed one. So, in the end, we purchased licences for EPLAN Pro Panel, and a Rittal Perforex machine!”
