Well equipped for Industry 4.0

Industry 4.0 represents both uncertainty and an opportunity. This is because, when a business implements Industry 4.0, it means both a change to organizational structures and in workflows. However, once the first step has been taken it has far-reaching positive effects on the entire value added chain, the business models and the way work is organised. Production processes and delivery chains are more efficient thanks to the networking of machines, and material costs and energy consumption are also reduced significantly. 

Modularisation – particularly in the field of electrotechnical functions – is an important stage within Industry 4.0 and it works towards greater standardisation yet at the same time greater individualisation. LQ Mechatronik-Systeme builds switchgear cabinets, focussing on the production of modular cabinets. Modular platforms combine components to form functional assemblies and assign defined input, output and software interfaces to each of these assemblies. This reduces the number of different parts used in the switchgear cabinet and keeps amount of effort required for procurement and warehouse management to a minimum. “Mechanical and plant engineers can provide a more flexible and rapid response to specific customer requests, new developments on the market or changed requirements if they use functional groups,” explains José Quero, LQ's Managing Director.

Plug-in connectors often have to withstand considerable external stresses under the most adverse conditions and yet still keep performing reliably.

Standardised interfaces create a perfect continuous connection, from the switchgear cabinet to the motor. The installation of LQ Mechatronik-Systeme's EnergyLink module saves time and money. The future belongs to modular systems solutions, not individual components – this is LQ's philosophy in its goal to reduce the many cables, connectors and small components used for control and installation technology and to streamline processes.
