Egemin Automation provides advanced automation solutions, which offer industrial enterprises added value in terms of internal logistics and business processes. These solutions are primarily based on in-house products and technologies. Egemin Automation begins supporting clients at the project planning stage, thereby enabling them to realise their strategic aims and obtain a competitive advantage.
Previous cabling technology individual connections has performed simple “in-and-out wiring“. This type of technology was the cause of many problems because, the wire ends were often too long an there was not enough space for connecting them especially as only one terminal was available. Since Egemin carries out projects worldwide, the company was looking for a simple, error-free and cost-effective solution.
Egemin Handling Automation uses two components from FieldPower®: The standard FieldPower® boxes and SEW-EURODRIVE‘s MOVIFITbasic, which contains the FieldPower® terminal as an intralogistic solution. The flexible FieldPower® contact module allows prefabrication of cable sets and supports fast, defect-free installation on site. Installation work can therefore also be carried out by non-electricians, since the modular design simplifies the functions and performance tests.
The customer benefit
In particular, simplified final assembly on site is highly beneficial for Egemin: The uncut cable is only stripped at a small section. This part is routed through the FieldPower® box and the prefabricated stub connected to the drive module. In this way, a single motor can be very easily disconnected while the others continue to run. Thanks to FieldPower®, previous line usage for a control cabinet has been reduced from 10 metres to 2 metres – a clear cost reduction.
