Every project undertaken by Kuadrotek is based on our 4.0 production engineering, which focuses on industrialisation of the whole mechanical and electrical manufacturing process.
Our EPLAN PLATFORM database includes all the information we could need to precisely design the switchboard (3D models of electrical components, drilling and connection templates, etc.). Once completed and validated said design, these files can be exported directly to our machines, in order to manufacture automatically all the different segments of the switchboard.
The whole process is standardized and controlled in real-time, by using macros, which greatly simplifies a makes a lot quicker the development phase of the multi-line diagram for instance. Everything is thoroughly tested and analysed using computer simulations, before being send into production. All this data is combined and included in the same EPLAN project.
Using as our main template the documentation provided directly by the client, such as a single-line diagram, a list of electric charges, etc.; taking also into account his particular technical specifications, as well as any required manufacturing standards; our first step will be to produce a fully detailed engineering design.
Engineering design with Eplan
The initial phase of our projects consists in our engineers developing a multi-line diagram, which includes a precise template of all the connections needed, as well as information about the wires with their particular colour and length, in order to proceed with the automated routing simulation. Our files also include a complete list of the different materials that would be needed for the manufacturing, and other kinds of information, such as field connection drawings.
Our next step is to create a complete 3D model of the switchboard, following the list of materials included with the multi-line diagram. This brings a series of advantages on a production level:
It allow us to get a fully detailed graphic representation of the final product, which can be revised and modified in any way needed.
Once the model gets validated, we can extract from it all the necessary data for the automated manufacturing of the switchboard.
Some of it will be translated into production files for our automated laser machinery, in order to produce a lot quicker the assembly plates and the external locks of the switchboard. The level of precision and reliability is also much higher (compared to manual handling).
From the very same model, we can also extract information for the automated production and calibration of wires and cables, providing our wiring specialist with a full set of pre-processed cables: with connexion terminals already mounted on both ends, ink-marked indications about the connexion points, and grouped in a way that makes plugging much quicker and easier.
Engineering design with Solidworks
Our dedicated SOLIDWORKS platform allows us to design complex busbar systems, for electrical panels up to 6300 amperes, and to carry out their automated manufacturing, which includes several operations like cutting, punching, threading and bending of the copper bars, either bright or tinned.
We handle the full assembling process of the busbar system inside the switchboard: horizontal and vertical copper bars, connexion to and from the circuit breakers, using either copper connexion blades or dedicated copper busbars.
Thanks to the design tools and machinery available at KUADROTEK, we can manufacture custom parts on plates, including holes, threads and the folds required.
We can also machine individual parts or sets of copper strip, based on a drawing supplied by the client. Thanks to the design tools we have available, we convert this preliminary information provided by the client into the machine files necessary to manufacture the parts.
In addition to automated manufacturing of cables for electrical switchboards, KUADROTEK offers the option of manufacturing custom sets of cables for use in various sectors. With a single table of data indicating the number of cables, length, section and colours desired, and the terminals to be fitted at both ends, these sets of cables are manufactured in the groups the client indicates.
Kuadrotek always try to offer the highest level of flexibility, to comply even with the most demanding needs or specifications. With this very goal in mind, and in order to infuse as much added value into our different projects, we offer you, with KUA service, a full set of complementary services for any product or system that should need additional modifications or technical adjustments, made directly at the client’s premises by our team of experts. In conjunction with our client, any required intervention is thoroughly planned and swiftly executed, with a first-hand knowledge of the project and his characteristics.
