SMART CABINET BUILDING
Adressing Challenges Together
Opening new opportunities through digitalization in control cabinet manufacturing with customized, integrated solutions: To achieve this goal, the companies Weidmüller, Komax, Zuken, and Armbruster Engineering have founded the SMART CABINET BUILDING initiative. These companies – technology leaders in different areas of electrical cabinet building – are now pooling their expertise and know-how
Bringing together Technology and Expertise
Weidmüller, Komax, Zuken and Armbruster Engineering have launched the SMART CABINET BUILDING initiative to provide new solutions in electrical cabinet manufacturing. The partners are joining forces to leverage the potential of digitalization in electrical cabinet manufacturing with customized, end-to-end solutions.
The control cabinet industry is facing many different challenges: a wide variety of technical options, rapidly changing customer requirements, cost and price pressure, and tight delivery deadlines. Addressing these challenges requires the utilization of automation and digitalization in a perfect combination of product, process, and production resources.
Technology and Expertise
Digitalization offers many options for the optimization of production processes. However, overall productivity increases can only be achieved if the individual aspects of the value-added process are taken into consideration. Our goal is to provide comprehensive solutions for today's and future challenges in control cabinet manufacturing by networking technology and expertise across all process stages.
Smart Tailored Solutions
Currently, there is a lack of consistent, cost-effective solutions to meet the individual needs of the control cabinet industry.To enable the electrical cabinet building industry to unlock the potentials of digitalization with tailored solutions, Weidmüller, Komax, Zuken and Armbruster Engineering have joined forces to launch the SMART CABINET BUILDING initiative
The automation of control cabinet manufacturing and assembly has a significant potential for cost-efficient on-shore production. The digital twin created in E3.series provides an excellent foundation for all downstream processes.

Smart Cabinet Building Website
To centralise the information from the four partners, Weidmüller, Komax, Zuken, and Armbruster Engineering a dedicated website has been created.
For detailed information about participating companies and scheduled events, please visit the SMART CABINET BUILDING website.
In this webinar our partner Timo Tessin from Armbruster Engineering will show you how to design workplaces in general, but also specifically for the field of control cabinet construction and what you should pay attention to.
Part of the Smart Cabinet Building partnership, this webinar we will show you the modular approach of the Wire Process Center from Weidmüller.
In this webinar we will demonstrate the possibilities of E3.WiringChecks based on a concrete and consistent application example.
In this webinar we will show you with the Klippon® Automated RailAssembler an economic solution for the assembly of mounting rails and with the Klippon® Automated RailLaser the next level of fully automatic marking of mounting rails, which allows time savings of up to 90%.
In this webinar we will discuss and show how customers are implementing the Smart Cabinet Building solutions - saving them both time and costs.
The new labeling solution from Komax integrates a thermal transfer printer for shrink sleeves directly into the automated wire production process.
Leveraging the opportunities of digitalization in control cabinet manufacturing together with customized, integrated solutions: To achieve this objective, Weidmüller, Komax, Zuken and Armbruster Engineering founded the "Smart Cabinet Building" initiative in April 2020.
Reducing costs, increasing productivity and ensuring quality – this is the wisdom that every management consultant in the manufacturing industry has in their briefcase today. In fact, over the past two decades, the industry has allocated significant budgets to achieve these goals. At the same time, companies often overlook money that is literally lying on the shop floor in the form of obsolete paper-based transitions to manufacturing – in particular in the areas of electrical engineering and assembly.
E3.panel allows engineers to layout components inside panel enclosures in both 3D and 2D. Intelligent automatic snapping points allow parts to be easily placed in their correct location. Clashes can be prevented with keep-out and height restrictions.
E3.cable extends the functionality of E3.schematic enabling individual conductors to be combined together in the design to form cables and harnesses.
