Japanese manufacturer innovates control panels
Reducing manufacturing costs and panel size with 30%, wiring time with 50%
Recently, ULVAC Inc. innovated its control panels in an attempt to reduce manufacturing costs. Their conventional products required two control panels, which involved complex wiring and labourintensive installation and maintenance.
Mr. Masanori Sugimoto from the Control Designing Department, FPD·PV Division of ULVAC, says that reducing wiring work was an obvious strategy to shorten the assembly time. In addition, if they could reduce the size of the panels at the same time, this would also speed up assembly as well as save valuable space at their customers’ factories.
