Wire Harness Design and Manufacturing Ecosystem

The increasing complexity and demand for wire harnesses are changing the competitive landscape. The traditional manual, labor-intensive wire harness design and manufacturing processes are largely obsolete. An efficient wire harness design to the manufacturing process needs a solid ecosystem of intelligent systems collaborating to produce the best results in the least time at the lowest price.

The E3.series wire harness ecosystem empowers wire harness engineers to take advantage of innovative automated test, assembly, and manufacturing solutions to stay ahead of the competition.

Cabinet Design and Manufacturing Ecosystem

Electrical panels are the nerve center of complex control systems like switchgear, PLCs, motor control centers, and power distribution systems. Implementing design-for-manufacturing principles significantly improves a panel’s form, fit, and function. It also creates the opportunity to utilize the smart cabinet building processes, streamlining everything from engineering to service.

E3.series simultaneously represents a panel in both 2D and 3D, eliminating the need to learn complex 3D mechanical tools. The manufacturing data captured in the project powers automated manufacturing, wiring, and assembly solutions from leading industry partners.
