Schaumburg, IL – May 3, 2017— Rittal North America, the world’s largest manufacturer of industrial enclosures, enclosure accessories and machinery, has launched an online tool to help system integrators calculate and compare the labor savings of automated panel modification.
For prospective buyers of the Rittal Perforex system, the calculator is a simple tool to show how quickly the machine will pay for itself in labor and time savings. The inputs for the Return on Investment (ROI) Calculator include:
- Number of holes and cutouts per job
- Number of enclosures modified per month
- Labor rate
“In general, manual modification that takes a few days, can be completed in hours on automated modification equipment like the Perforex,” said Mike Herzog, Rittal Automation Systems Business Manager for Rittal North America. “The online ROI calculator easily visualizes how quickly the Perforex delivers a return on investment for their business.”
Perforex machining centers were developed by Rittal to fully automate the manual tasks involved in modifying enclosures and back panels. Designed specifically for control panel manufacturers, Perforex machining centers can be easily programmed to drill holes, tap threads and cut required openings in the enclosure.
Accompanying the system is a user-friendly Perforex workshop program with layout software and a database structure with “pick and place” design. Machine-ready layout programs can be created without any prior CAD experience. The workshop program is designed to allow engineers and panel builders to design in a 2D environment and visually verify and ensure design of the layout before performing the modification.
