Reduce total process time and cost for manufacturing switch boxes for automated storage

Component cost reduced; labor cost remaining a significant burden
When designing a new automated storage system or making a major specification change, there are times where switch boxes suitable for the new system need to be installed. In some cases the designer of automated storage system, hoping to reduce cost, purchased units such as emergency stop switches, lamps, buzzers, and operation panel boxes by himself, and connected wires and assembled them. However, these switch boxes often need to be installed on multiple locations. It is not that only one box is made and the job is completed, which added more work for the designer. In some cases, specifications of switch boxes are varied depending on installation locations, which add even more work. When you make your own switch box, component cost can certainly be reduced, however, labor cost is incurred due to additional labor for multiple wiring and assembly work. This was the issue the designer faced when reviewing the total cost.

Utilizing expertise to reduce wiring and labor

If you want to reduce this type of labor cost, let us, the professionals, do the job. IDEC has abundant knowledge in developing switch boxes that meet customers’ needs. Upon understanding the intention of equipment design, we decide on the specifications of operation terminals and where they need to be installed. We also determine the best, efficient wiring and assembly procedures. As control units such as switches can be installed easily onto boards by placing connectors only, wiring and man-hour, and the customer’s labor cost are reduced.

If a professional does not do the job, the entire process might by delayed due to possible mistakes in wiring, etc., however, with IDEC, there is no such worry. We can customize the box design if customers need specific design with particular size, shape, or materials. If you want to reduce the total cost for automated storage design, please consult with IDEC with our own expertise and technology in reducing labor of switch-related system design.
