nVent Electric plc  recently previewed its upcoming digital manufacturing software portfolio at Rockwell Automation Fair in Chicago on November 16-17. The Design to Manufacturing Software, powered by Zuken’s E3.series, is a proven and fast engineering system for designers and manufacturing personnel to:

  •    –   Plan and design the electrical engineering for machines and factory systems
  •    –   Automate panel building through 2D/3D design and assembly of industrial and commercial control panels

The nVent HOFFMAN Design to Manufacturing Software, powered by Zuken, helps to create time and labor savings, enabling the building of a more sustainable and electrified world.

“By adding the Design to Manufacturing Software, powered by Zuken, we have significantly enhanced our value proposition by optimizing the entire panel design and fabrication process,” said Alexander van der Weide, general manager and vice president for nVent. “Companies are prudently finding ways to maximize the skills of their workforce, especially in such a competitive landscape and tight job market. This will make it easier for our customers to deliver high-quality solutions faster, with fewer resources and time-consuming steps.”

The Design to Manufacturing Software provides design automation to help electrical engineers to simplify processes, and ultimately increase overall productivity. With its easy-to-use intelligent central parts library, designers can now efficiently work on a single project while the software automatically ensures the data is continually up to date, making the design and planning process easy.

The optimized engineering process drives the creation of the digital twin with all the necessary manufacturing details. The panel building process is automated by connecting machines and workers, accelerating the transition to smart manufacturing. Workers can now easily visualize the design and immediately access digital documentation. This automated workflow detects critical errors, significantly improves the time taken to build a panel, and maintains the overall process.

The advanced software portfolio will be released in 2023 as part of a collaboration with Zuken, a global software company specializing in optimizing electrical and electronic engineering design processes. The Design to Manufacturing software portfolio will include specially designed software packages for engineering and manufacturing processes, connecting workers to the manufacturing floor, and adding optional add-on functionalities.
