Schneider ElectricDANOBAT helps increase productivity at Schneider Electric, a world-renowned specialist in energy management, handling electricity distribution and manufacturing electrical equipment

Challenge

To increase productivity, reduce down times and contain maintenance costs.

Solution

After analysing the machinery in place at the Schneider Electric plant and its levels of productivity and automation, DANOBAT proposed the following improvements:

  • replacing the two punching machines by more precise units with larger work areas; 
  • incorporating a panel bender to automatically handle and bend larger panels;
  • and finally incorporating a combined punching & shearing system to make the most of materials and adapt production to short runs.

Results

With these changes, Schneider Electric obtained a major increase in its productivity and quality levels which led to record-beating figures for delivery times and substantial dividends for the company.

Investing in DANOBAT machines has taken us to record figures in product lead times with high standards of quality.

Interview

Mohammed Adil, Head of Plant at Schneider Electric President Systems Ltd

What challenge did this project hold?

We needed a fully trustworthy, high-precision machine that could provide high performance at the minimum cost in terms of time and low maintenance. In a word, we needed a cost-effective, high-performance solution for our punching needs. In DANOBAT we found a solution that met those requirements, and that is why we invested in several DANOBAT machines, which have brought us major dividends. 

What type of parts do you make on the DANOBAT machines? What was the technical challenge involved?

We work in the field of industrial frames: we manufacture panels, and we needed to increase productivity to meet demand. The DANOBAT punching & shearing machine and automatic panel bender meet those requirements, and also provide the productivity and precision that we needed. This has enabled us to achieve record figures in product lead times with high standards of quality.

What improvements has this led to? How do you rate DANOBAT´s response capability?

Their response has always been good in all the matters that have come up, and it has been really valuable to have them as a partner.

How does the relationship between the Schneider and DANOBAT teams work?

It is a classic example of real, meaningful support.

Are there any positive surprises or future expansion plans?

The company has grown by 25% in the past two years, and I expect it to continue growing in 2016 so yes, there are certainly expansion plans. And DANOBAT will be our partner.
