Machine Tool Manufacturing: Cost-effectiveness

…and the satisfaction of choosing the right installation approach

Machine tool manufacturing is a broad field. The needs and wishes of customers relating to decentralized installation are just as diverse as the machines and plants themselves. Of course, there is also a common thread, however: Cost-effectiveness, low overall costs, and more competitiveness are always in demand.

Good installation concepts link all I/O points to the controller in an economical manner. The term “cost-effectiveness” is defined a little differently from person to person: Aspects such as material costs, the time needed for installation, and the degree of functionality and technology are weighted differently in every question — depending on the company philosophy. 

This is why Murrelektronik does not offer just a single solution for a given challenge. Instead, customers can select from a variety of passive and active installation concepts and different structures (ring structures, superstructures in a line, topologies in star formation)—there are a range of possibilities that can be combined together.

Electrical engineers in machine tool manufacturing benefit from this: They can select an approach for their machines that meets all of their technical requirements — and is tailored to their needs for cost-effectiveness! Murrelektronik provides comprehensive expertise in all questions of fieldbus technology, safety, and IO-Link.
