By leveraging the automatic wire length calculations based on the wire routing from the 1:1 scale panel design, manufacturers can drive wire processing machines with accurate information to match the manufactured product. Panel Builder 2023 for E3.series creates wiring list export files in native formats to provide instructions for wire processing machines from Schleuniger, Komax, and nVent, cutting and stripping each wire to the required length. Manufacturers can reduce material waste and save on cost and time manufacturing each unit.
E3.ExportToKomax allows customers to export wire information to load into KOMAX TopConvert. This output offers an automated way to quickly load entire cutting lists into wire processing machines. The output merges the wires into bundles based on the output mode. With device-driven bundles, the bundles divide into sub-bundles per device for different destinations. The tool also offers checks for unrouted wires, wires exceeding cut length limits, and availability on Komax machines of wires and connector pin terminals.
