The Heart of the Automated System: Perforex

The Perforex machine enables 10 hours of panel production work to be completed in just 90 minutes. Perforex delivers not only time savings but increased accuracy and reduced waste with its CNC precision-capabilities. Perforex units call upon up to 20 tools in the magazine for operations including drilling tapping, milling and circular thread milling,

Perforex can handle clampable panels up to 3600×2300 mm, and since programming is faster than manual marking, the system is economically advantageous from a batch size of one. Perhaps most importantly, there are important design advantages inherent in Rittal enclosures that are amplified with the Perforex machining center.

Rittal offers Moteur du Cuivre a very versatile solution with its modification center capabilities and quick deliveries. Complemented by Rittal’s services such as 3D approval drawings and expert consulting, the complete enclosure solution is ideal for Moteur du Cuivre.
