German engineers have a good reputation worldwide. Because the number of skilled workers in Germany continues to fall (in electrical engineering there is a shortage in 50 percent of professions) solutions must be found to balance this out – even without additional staff. Function modules instead of individual components are the key to success or, to put it in a nutshell, the modular switchgear cabinet. According to LQ mechatronic systems from Besigheim, modularisation of individual functions frees up unexpected reserves.
The more mechanical and plant processing engineers concentrate on their core business, the fewer the resources that are devoted to the time-intensive production and assembly of cables and cable carrier systems. Systems suppliers play an important role here as an indispensable partner. LQ is one such partner. The Besigheim-based company recognised at an early stage that outsourcing is invaluable for customers. The mechatronics experts deliver installation technology in its entirety so that it is ready to connect directly to the machine – starting with the cable and cable assemblies and continuing to the cable carrier system.
The use of modular systems is becoming increasingly important in today's global markets. According to a recent study, 86 percent of all manufacturing companies now produce modular products, which account for around fifty percent of their turnover – a trend that shows no sign of slowing down. LQ Mechatronik-Systeme GmbH in Besigheim identified this trend long ago and for years now has been producing modular control cabinets that offer a significant reduction in complexity. The mechatronics experts offer their customers complete solutions from the joint development of strategic concepts through engineering and logistics to servicing.
