The advent of Industry 4.0 has turned enclosure construction into a fine art of meticulous project management - juggling orders at the drop of a hat, meeting tight deadlines and accommodating last-minute alterations. To handle the massively increased complexity of orders and still deliver accurately and on time, suppliers not only have to adjust to the changed requirements but also be in a position to quickly and profitably deliver even single units. This challenge inspired Weidmüller, one of the top suppliers in the field of industrial connectivity, to create its Fast Delivery Service for pre-configured terminal strips.
Visitors to HANNOVER MESSE 2018 can explore the benefits of the new service offered by Weidmüller. It frees customers from the high fixed costs of reserved production capacities, constant provision of storage space and purchasing individual components. The new Fast Delivery Service in the Weidmüller Configurator (WMC) commits to delivering one-off, ready-to-install terminal strips within five working days. After performing the same intuitive configuration process as usual, using an ECAD system and the WMC, within minutes the customer receives an automated offer, including all part numbers. As soon as the order is placed, Weidmüller starts assembling it based on the data provided by the WMC. The ready-to-install terminal strip is dispatched within four days at most and will generally arrive the next day within Germany. The customer's wishes can be met in full this way, even one-off requirements.
