Short delivery times and best service
Linear Transfer Automation conducts a comprehensive assessment and quality review on all components and devices used in their equipment, to ensure customers are provided with the right solution. Before using a product and entering into a partnership with the manufacturer of the product, with respect to Rittal products, an extensive market study was carried out when selecting enclosures, console enclosures and terminal boxes in which the essential components were to be installed. The decision was clearly in favour of Rittal, the only manufacturer whose products and solutions are available worldwide and that can be delivered quickly. What was even more important was that Rittal provided the highest quality consistently. One of the greatest benefits is the standardised and comprehensive range of products, which fulfils the requirements of Linear Transfer Automation and its customers. Modular and scalable enclosures can be easily added on or bayed, so saving valuable space on the shop floor and on the assembly line.
To provide world-class service to international customers, Linear Transfer Automation has set up Service and Support Centers in all those regions where the company’s systems are installed. In this context, the global Rittal service network has proven to be particularly advantageous. Consequently, global customers can now easily access Rittal spare parts and service from anywhere in the world. Over the past years, the mechanical engineering company has installed hundreds of enclosures and enclosure cooling units in its factories. The company also uses terminal boxes, support arm systems and other accessories from Rittal.
