Some of them have now been honored and some of them retired. When Arno Müller, Managing Director of häwa, informed the employees at the company meeting in mid December about the turnover figures of the last year, he did not have to look into tense faces. The staff members knew that they did an outstanding work during the last twelve months.

Anyway, the manager informs the staff members regularly and transparently about the figures of the company with headquarters in Wain. And these figures are impressive for 2017.  Thus Müller could not only announce a significant increase of the order volume of 15 per cent compared with the figures of the previous year, but also a current order backlog of more than 22 million euros.

Müller stated: ”This is a fantastic performance, which cannot be attributed entirely to the favorable state of economic activity, but also and in particular to the outstanding commitment and creativity of the whole team“.

However, we do not intend to bask in our success, we want to expand with an increased  momentum. We believe the best way to realize this is investing. Therefore, we will not only modernize our entire IT and logistic hardware and software, we intend also to extend our buildings.
The responsible authorities have already approved the development plan for a new painting hall for the plant in Wain and we have already acquired new land for the expansion of the facilities in Bad Wörishofen. Furthermore, we will purchase new machines for our manufacturing operations, two new trailer trucks in modern design and a defibrillator for our plant in Wain. This is a device that can save lives in the event of cardiac arrest – the first device of this kind in the Wain which can of course also be used outside the company premises.
 
In his outlook for 2018, Arno Müller was convinced, that the economic revival will continue. "On the one hand, this is of course very pleasing, but on the other hand, it presents new challenges for us, such as the reduction of delivery times."

Häwa's greatest strength has always been to be close to the customer and to react quickly and individually to the customers' requirements. "This flexibility, coupled with the highest quality, must be preserved to secure our future."

At the end of the year, Arno Müller took the opportunity during a common dinner with the staff members in Wain to congratulate several employees for 10, 25 and 40 years of loyality. The staff members who retired last year received a collage with photos which reminds them of the time with häwa.  Müller stated: “I hope that you will always keep us in good memory“ In any case, we will not forget you, since we know, what you have done for us.”

The traditional German company häwa in Wain, presents on the SPS Fair in Nuremberg, new enclosure developments for the food and pharmaceutical sector, ensuring a higher degree of protection against germs.

häwa – the enclosure and machine rack manufacturer -  will present this year its latest generation of hygiene enclosures at booth 170/270 in hall 5 at the SPS IPC Drives in Nuremberg. häwa has improved their cabinets which, for example, have already been known for packaging machines in the food and pharmaceutical field for their easy handling and robustness by developing a new sealing system which offers decisive advantages.
Stefan Kaufer, deputy sales manager for South Germany stated: “The sealing of the cabinets was so far a weak point, since germs could accumulate in the course of time between the two silicon beads of the doors." Therefore, häwa will rely in the future on a system which requires only one single sealing. This facilitates not only cleaning, for example with high-pressure cleaners, but reduces also significantly the risk that some niches and corners cannot be reached during the daily care process. “Here, we found together with specialists and the experience from the food and pharmaceutical industry, a solution that is just as insulating as two seals, but much easier to handle," says Stefan Kaufer from häwa, who was personally involved in the development process.

As a longtime volunteer in the Red Cross emergency service, he is aware of the sensitivity to the cleaning of daily used enclosures and has been able to incorporate insights from medical technology into the work of the häwa engineers. “We have now reduced the gaps in our hygiene cabinets to an absolute minimum and are proud to be able to offer our customers a product that meets the strictest standards in the food and pharmaceutical industry. We know that cleanliness in these production areas must have top priority. But cleanliness costs time. Owing to our new system, we can considerably reduce the cleaning process.” Furthermore, the cabinets are equipped with special hygiene locks, which are particularly easy to handle. The roof is mounted in an inclined position to prevent liquid deposits.
All components can be easily and safely mounted on a large mounting plate. "We are glad to introduce the new hygiene cabinets at the SPS fair," says Stefan Kaufer, "and we are convinced that their advantages will also inspire the experienced users."

The specific characteristic of this system is a modular, extremely sturdy sheet steel frame available in a variety of different stabilities. The frame itself has lockable flaps, enabling a safe and comfortable cable routing system and all kinds of creative room for component installation.

Volker Ott, manager of the häwa X-frame department stated: “You have to imagine this like a large cable duct designed as a frame in which electrical and pneumatic components can be installed. This is especially appreciated by our customers who already utilize these benefits. They therefore consider the X-frame program not only as a machine rack but as a system. A system which is extremely flexible and always ready to be adapted to the specific machine requirement. This is the significant advantage of häwa, a customized machine rack designed to your specific requirements – with the personal advice from our consultants from the beginning”. Volker Ott says that the customers will have more time to focus on the technical aspects of their applications, since häwa will be there to support the planning and design. “We relieve our customers by designing the complete machine frame – from doors to covers, safety switches, working plates, component surfaces, built-in space for required accessories, safe routing for cables and wiring and ease of access for it all.

”Machine racks have become more and more significant in the mechanical engineering field and häwa's X-frame, regarded as the new comer of the year, is seeing rapidly increasing demand. We are seeing this system used in almost all sectors and industries, from robot cells, laser safety cells, up to clean room cells.

Peter Klement from the company Klement Engineering near Ulm, a robotic expert, stated: “For me, X-frame is the perfect product, since it is a modular system with already realized standards which improves the entire commissioning process considerably. Furthermore, this system enables an easy and cost-effective realization of customized solutions, which is very important for our company, since we do not offer assembly line products”.

But what has that to do with the Tour de France, which runs until July 23rd? In fact, it has a little to do with While the dairy cows enjoy their breakfast in the early morning on the lush green meadows near the small village Seeg in the Allgäu region and the main Alpine ridge in the south is so bright in the sun as if somebody had raised a photo wallpaper, Oliver Rück opens the doors of his häwa X-frame robot enclosure and starts the task program. The components move almost silently and the display at the cabinet bottom shows the message “Everything o.k.” The mechanical engineer at Sematek knows that the KUKA robot will now work automatically with its laser beam and that the blanks must be inserted on one side and the milled parts must be removed on the other side. Round foam parts, precisely machined, recall the rim of a bicycle. These parts are in deed required for the manufacture of carbon rims, explains Rück and when he watches the Tour de France on TV these days, he knows that he, and also häwa, have indirectly something to do with most of the bicycles, used on the Tour de France, since his robots could not work without häwa enclosures.
Carbon rims are the best rims that are currently available on the market because they are extremely light and solid. Such a bike, equipped with a carbon-reinforced
Sematek fine-pore foam core, costs up to 5.000 euros. Actually, about 15.000 bikes are worldwide manufactured each year and the demand is increasingly high. Experts assume soon a demand of 200.000 bikes per month.  
“Since 2007, we have been developing innovative complete solutions for mechanical engineering here in the Allgäu”, says Oliver Rück, “and are mainly supplying modern production plants that are looking for cost-effective and effective production processes for new products”, such like a bike manufacturer from Friedrichshafen.  
When developing such solutions, we as medium-sized company, have the advantage to react quickly and to look for the best solutions while talking with the customer. And that's exactly what he appreciates with his own suppliers. “A perfect machine cell, as we require, cannot be purchased off the shelf, it must be planned, developed and then custom-made. Häwa is the sole manufacturer, who offers such a high degree of quality and flexibility.” The company from Wain has developed with the X-frame program a modular system which can be extended and modified according to the customers' requirements. Owing to its simple design, in which all cables are routed in the struts in a protected manner, further cable ducts and components are not required. “We know that our enclosures are used worldwide in various industries”, says deputy sales manager of häwa, Stefan Kaufer. And we are very happy, if we can currently contribute our success to the success of the Tour de France.”

news-257 Wed, 07 Jun 2017 09:30:00 +0200 Get ready to Meet the Challenges of the Industry 4.0 https://www.haewa.com/news/informationen-abonnieren/rss-feed-subscription.html?tx_news_pi1%5Bnews%5D=257&tx_news_pi1%5Bcontroller%5D=News&tx_news_pi1%5Baction%5D=detail&cHash=6c21edf8f2b65581b277f6e789fc2cf0 “Industry 4.0 ready“ control cabinets are still made of sheet steel, but their design helps to make the increasingly networked production processes in today's factories more efficient. Thomas Eglof from the cabinet manufacturer häwa presents solutions for the design of the control cabinet 4.0. Industry 4.0 is an absolute trend topic. After the mechanization, the mass production and computers, we now face the fourth major industrial revolution. But, the interaction of cyber-physical systems is mostly still a more or less vague concept. Solutions for “Industry 4.0” and their effects on related business fields are often unclear.

Thomas Eglof, Product Manager with the enclosure manufacturer häwa in Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany, demonstrates this concept with a pizza order, placed on the way home by smart phone via voice control function. If the software chooses the nearest pizza restaurant, knows about the user's preferences and diet plans, and automatically selects the suitable pizza toppings according to this information, this has a lot to do with Industry 4.0.

Optimization of the value-added chain
A sheet steel cabinet can also be “Industry 4.0 ready”, Eglof explains. “The sheet steel cabinet will certainly remain an empty enclosure, which will be equipped at the customer's site, but häwa's products are designed to help accommodate and protect the intelligent and digitally networked system components required for the realization of a customized production line. They will help to optimize the entire value-added chain.“

häwa control cabinets will be ready to meet the Industry 4.0 requirements. “A cabinet remains a cabinet, but we are optimizing our products in a way that they can also be used in a network environment,” states Thomas Eglof. For example, it is necessary to provide enough space for sensors or to adapt the air conditioning system to an increased energy flow inside of the cabinet. The cabinet must also be sealed to protect the highly sensitive technology from dust, water, drafts or vandalism; also increased safety requirements (e.g. in explosion-proof areas) have to be considered, where necessary. Eglof explains: “While in earlier times it was enough to equip sheet steel cabinets with a normal fuse, nowadays, cabinets are a protective cover for digital processes, which are incredibly complex, extensive and sensitive.“
Machines and storage systems think for themselves
“Ready for Industry 4.0” at häwa doesn't just reflect on the products, but also on häwa's own production processes. “We will not change our production processes overnight, but gradually, just where it makes sense, we will implement machine communication that will improve and optimize our internal operations“, says Thomas Eglof.  “If, for example, the steel for the control cabinet production is delivered, it is not stored randomly for a long time, but the sheets are immediately assigned to a product. “This is possible, because all the machines, storage systems and other equipment communicate with each other and initiate follow-up actions.”

As defined by Industry 4.0, these machines not only know their own functionality, but also the status quo and capacities of other machines – and they share their knowledge. This optimizes capacity utilization and production processes.

For staff members this means work content modification and increased quality requirements. To ensure that technicians, skilled workers and trainees do not perceive this as an additional burden, häwa offers targeted training and further education.

To manage the long-ranging adaptation to “Industry 4.0”, häwa is working in internal teams to compile the necessary steps. “We are carefully reviewing which actions are meaningful and cost-efficient for us, and are also discussing this with our customers”, says Thomas Eglof. “This makes us confident that we will not miss out on any new developments, but also don't compromise our quality and service through hasty actions.“

news-256 Mon, 22 May 2017 11:30:00 +0200 Protective Enclosure https://www.haewa.com/news/informationen-abonnieren/rss-feed-subscription.html?tx_news_pi1%5Bnews%5D=256&tx_news_pi1%5Bcontroller%5D=News&tx_news_pi1%5Baction%5D=detail&cHash=10d0f49149ea6635dea6982eeed17e11 New protective enclosure completely designed to the customer's requirements The machine tool manufacturer Kesel looked for a supplier for particularly sealed protective enclosures with short delivery time.

Since Kesel has been cooperating with häwa for many years, when looking for individual control cabinet and enclosure solutions, häwa was also the top address for the FS 1500 bandsaw blade milling machine project. For this project, there was a special challenge: Kesel had problems with the sealing of the protective enclosure of the previous milling machine model. They had problems with water and cooling emulsion leakages, since the seals and the folded edges were unsatisfactorily designed.
Together with the designers of Kesel, häwa redesigned the machine enclosure completely. “Now the protective enclosure is completely tight and clean to the outside, just like our customers wish to have them”, says Björn Natterer, Head of the Kesel Purchasing Department.
All flanged edges and seals are designed in such a way that no processing water and no valuable cooling emulsion can leak out. Natterer stated that a further advantage of the new enclosure is the shortened assembly time. It could be reduced from one week to two days. Owing to the new framework contact with häwa, it was possible to reduce also the delivery time from 14 to 16 weeks to 4 weeks, which eases the business planning of both companies for the current year. 

All at once in two packages
The FS 1500 bandsaw blade milling machine is the first machine which is supplied completely, that means that the internal sheet metal components are delivered together with the protective cover. “häwa immediately agreed and delivers now all required parts in two packages. We do not have to store any enclosure part in our production site. The first package for the protective enclosure assembly is delivered at the beginning of the production of the machine and the second package, including all remaining parts, is delivered according to a precise delivery schedule”, explains Natterer. “The first package for the assembly of the protective enclosure will be supplied at the beginning of the production and the second package, including all remaining parts, will be supplied as requested, according to the assembly schedule, explains“ Natterer. Thus, the assembly sequences are optimized and precisely scheduled. häwa stated that owing to their own transport fleet, they are very flexible in regard to the production logistics. Stefan Kaufer, häwa Debuty Sales Manager for South Germany, commented: “Kesel asked us, if we are able to provide the required parts for the protective enclosure as well as the internal parts at an exact date and in two separate deliveries and we answered them, that we are not here to just sell our products, we are here to do all we can do to satisfy our customers and that this is one of our individual customer service”. Kaufer added: “Your individual requirements are always the focus for us and owing to our experienced consultants, our modern factories as well as our own transport fleet, we are able to realize almost every customer solution on time and cost-effectively.“

More cost-effective than the previous enclosure
Due to the framework contract and the order volume, the new protective enclosure for the FS 1500 bandsaw blade milling machine is more favorable in price than the previous version, although it has been completely redesigned and adapted to the Kesel design and divided in two separate deliveries. Natterer says: “We greatly appreciate that häwa does the very best to fulfill their customer's wishes, if possible. Meanwhile, we have established a long lasting good business relationship“.

The next Kesel machine is in the final construction stage and häwa will once more be the partner for the enclosure construction. Kaufer concludes: “We are in the planning phase and are convinced that we will be able to realize also this project“.

Peter Klement develops and builds robot system with great success. The only problem he had, were the enclosures for his machines, since his own solutions were often too expensive for his customers  – until he found the standardized solution from häwa in Wain.

When Peter Klement designs a new grip-arm robot, he thinks about how a machine can perform a task with the utmost precision. Looking out of the window in his office in Neu-Ulm, he can see how the birds in the forest near the Danube adapt themselves with a precise plan to each season. “In our dynamic time it is most important to react, for example, to economic fluctuations with flexible work resources”, says the mechanical engineer. “It is essential to capture and implement a new task quickly and effectively, just as it happens instinctively in nature”. Therefore, his company “Klement Engineering” specialized among other things in robotic innovations, which also make the use of robotic systems interesting for small and medium-sized companies – from the optical position recognition through measuring, dynamic tracking up to specific grip-arm designs using 3D printing components. Although many experts in this sector think that the tendency is that people and robots will be working more and more often together on one project, Peter Klement is convinced that this sharing of labor is actually simply too expensive for many applications due to the risks and dangers that could arise from a machine. He stated that one of the biggest challenges in this sector was to look for a cost-efficient enclosure for these machines or, at least, to separate them from certain work areas by means of light grids without having to design and build an individual robot cell for each customer which will unnecessarily increase the non-recurring costs.

The engineer found the solution with the company häwa GmbH in Wain, which is situated only a few kilometers away from his office in Neu-Ulm. häwa is one of the largest supplier of electrical enclosures and control cabinets. häwa designed a patented, modular rack system, called “X-frame” which is consisting of sheet steel frames, offering maximum flexibility and numerous extension possibilities. Due to large cross-sections, the interior of the built-in struts offer a save and from the outside invisible installation of hoses, cables, lines, valves and other components. Even light curtains can be installed quickly and easily in the corner struts. With the “X-frame system” Peter Klement expressed he found the optimum solution for his problems. This system combines the advantages of standardized modules with the flexibility of large cable ducts in the struts. In other words, further machining or welding of frames is not necessary. Furthermore, the system offers the realization of easy and cost-efficient customized solutions at any time which is most important for his company, since he doesn't offer assembly line products. “häwa is a competent partner for all customized solutions and based on the experience over numerous projects, they can achieve quickly the optimum solution for me.” After receipt of the order, häwa creates a 3D drawing and after release, the cells are manufactured.

And so it is not surprising that the managing director of Klement Engineering will also rely on the new häwa product for his next projects. Although there are customer inquiries for solutions without enclosures, the obstacles for the CE documentation and the compliance with the machine guideline are usually so complex that the project will easily become too expensive.

„If a customer component is pointed or sharp, a human-robot collaboration is no longer an option," says Klement. „Except, you make a maximum effort to prevent this risk otherwise, which is usually uneconomical." Quite apart from that, the modern appealing design of the X-frame cells are real eye-catchers in every assembly hall.

Meanwhile, outside his office, along the river banks of the Danube, birds fly back and forth and build nests. Resistant homes, perfectly adapted with the utmost protection. A little bit like a X-frame cell.

About Klement Engineering
Peter Klement founded in 2009 an engineering office for design and development, which is today able to realize the complete construction of customized machines. Particularly in the robotic sector, the company developed fully automatic plants which can also be used by small to medium-sized companies.
This could be realized in particular by the partnership with Sebastian Reger from the compnay “Projetraum Reger”,who has been responsible for software programming, hardware development and e-planning since 2011. Further information is available at  www.klement-engineering.de

About X-frame
The modular system is the present standard for various product ranges, customized products and specific customer requirements. The X-frame system is flexible and can be adapted quickly and easily. All customer requirements, such as drilling, milling and control cabinet positioning, are already considered during the planning phase. Due to the open structure of the X-frame system, cable ducts are not required.

news-245 Mon, 10 Apr 2017 07:17:00 +0200 Functional häwa frame for manual workstations https://www.haewa.com/news/informationen-abonnieren/rss-feed-subscription.html?tx_news_pi1%5Bnews%5D=245&tx_news_pi1%5Bcontroller%5D=News&tx_news_pi1%5Baction%5D=detail&cHash=5f4246ddec64c97c13823f8850ecc9ca Various additional functions can be integrated directly in the manual workstation Manual workstations play an important roll in production halls and despite of increased automation and industry 4.0, they will further exist for certain procedures. However, it depends on how manual workstations can be optimized and integrated in modern production environments.

The functional frames, for example X-frame from häwa, are perfectly suited for the increasing versatile requirements to manual workstations. Sheet metal workstations offer perfect possibilities for the integration of customer's requests.  X-frame is a functional frame in which complicated processes and workflows can be easily integrated and modifies the manual workstation into a complex assembly unit, which is adapted to the customer's requirements. From simple table racks with integrated cable ducts and cabinets to semi and fully automatic assembly lines, X-frame can fulfill almost every wish. On this basis, we are also very successful in designing cross-sectoral customized machine frames.

With the patented, modular X-frame machine rack for modular workstations from häwa, it is possible to build ergonomic workstations to DIN EN ISO. The complete functional frame offers the users the possibility for an individual and direct positioning of the required functions and components in the workstation! No matter if it is a cabinet, pneumatic or electrical lines or components, with X-frame it is possible to integrate everything quickly and easily into the workstation. Quick assembly and easy access are ensured by flaps, doors or bolted doors, which can be opened and removed quickly and easily and all integrated components are safely protected.

The X-frame system derives from a variable modular system. It is based on a platform concept – similar to the automotive industry. With X-frame, the customer remains flexible during the entire development process and – even afterwards – the customer has the opportunity to modify his manual workstation design. All standard parts, which are required for the manual workstation assembly can be combined in a versatile manner. That means that retrofits and adjustments can be realized easily and quickly. Thus, the X-frame machine rack is a highly flexible frame for manual workstations which grows with the requirements of the user!

The large strut cross sections offer a high torsion resistance of the X-frame system. The strut joints are provided with cut-outs which ensure a simple cable and line routing to the respective adjacent strut.  Cables and components can be installed within a very short time. Customer service, repairs and extensions are possible without any problems. Cables can be installed separately within the frame. Subsequent modifications and retrofits are also possible at any time.

Many other features can also be easily integrated into the X-frame manual workstation. This includes, for example, control panels, monitor holders, canopies for suspending lights or mounting tools, as well as cabinets with protection class according to IP 54. Of course, the workstations offer enough storage space for tools and aids and they are adjustable to height (either mechanically, pneumatically or electrically).

news-242 Thu, 23 Feb 2017 07:17:00 +0100 Modified cooling system by häwa permitting extremely flexible use thanks to several voltage variants within the same enclosure https://www.haewa.com/news/informationen-abonnieren/rss-feed-subscription.html?tx_news_pi1%5Bnews%5D=242&tx_news_pi1%5Bcontroller%5D=News&tx_news_pi1%5Baction%5D=detail&cHash=cc182ad24ee78ec9b35b4b2ee6abf9bb häwa GmbH has modified their compact and low-maintenance cooling system KF1000RD and now offers several voltage variants (115V AC, 230V AC and 400/460V AC) within the same enclosure. häwa GmbH has modified their compact and low-maintenance cooling system KF1000RD and now offers several voltage variants (115V AC, 230V AC and 400/460V AC) within the same enclosure. This permits worldwide use of the device in the USA as well as in Europe. To mount the air conditioner into or onto a cabinet, only one hole pattern is required for all models. The cooling system with front display for easy control provides an effective cooling capacity of 1,000 W. A compact regulator with display in the front panel ensures easy operation and activates the compressor and the external fan. The internal fan is automatically switched off when the door contact is open.

häwa‘s flexible cabinet cooling systems can be used as independent individual devices for ambient temperatures ranging from +20 °C up to +50/+55 °C. They have two separate air circuits sealed to IP 54 equipped with one fan each. Refrigeration or heat transfer from the interior of the cabinet to the outside is effected via active cooling (cooling unit) permitting the below ambient cooling of the cabinet’s interior temperature. The R134a refrigerant used is ozone friendly and CFC-free.

The external fan only runs during cooling operation thus avoiding unnecessary noise and pollution. The factory-set internal cabinet temperature of +35 °C can be changed manually at the controller. A separate control line for door switch connected to the plug-in terminal ensures external on/off switching of the unit without disconnection from supply (an optional door contact can be connected setting the cooling system to standby mode when the cabinet door is open).

Any condensate that may have formed is evaporated in the external circuit. When the cabinet door is open for a longer time or if the level of humidity is high, excessive condensate may form if no door contact switch is used. Excess condensation water is drained through slots provided at the bottom of the cabinet with the help of a discharge hose. Electrical connection is done via a plug on the rear panel of the unit. The mating plug is included in the scope of delivery.

news-219 Thu, 27 Oct 2016 07:17:00 +0200 häwa presents customized and clever conceived cabinet solutions at the fair SPS IPC Drives 2016 https://www.haewa.com/news/informationen-abonnieren/rss-feed-subscription.html?tx_news_pi1%5Bnews%5D=219&tx_news_pi1%5Bcontroller%5D=News&tx_news_pi1%5Baction%5D=detail&cHash=4ad3dab306b183d36d011a142cb701b9 This year, häwa GmbH will focus at the SPS IPC Drives in hall 5, at booths 170 and 270, on customized and clever conceived cabinet solutions. This year, häwa GmbH will focus at the SPS IPC Drives in hall 5, at booths 170 and 270, on customized and clever conceived cabinet solutions.

For example, the company will show an enclosure, demonstrating a FEM-calculation for a simulation-based cabinet/enclosure development process. This new service discovers efficiently weak points of enclosure and cabinet constructions and demonstrates all physical characteristics visually. Owing to the FEM-calculation, it is possible to take selective optimization steps to shorten development times and to reduce development costs.

Owing to a sophisticated ventilating and air-conditioning solution, the exhibited outdoor enclosures are perfect for outdoor use in any weather conditions. They are based on a basic cabinet design with different versions and removable, from inside bolted side panels, as well as a special detachable rain cover. The installed fans and air-conditioning units ensure a perfect climate inside the cabinet in any weather. To protect the enclosure against scratching, the bottom is externally fitted with stainless steel sliding plates. The individually required holes and rails for the interior fitting of the enclosure are already provided.

Furthermore, häwa will show hygiene enclosures for packaging machines for the food processing industry. Based on the häwa RHL-cabinet series H450 design, the hygiene enclosures benefit from smooth surfaces, a declined roof and they have no gaps and cracks where product material could be deposited. Therefore cleaning is fast and easy, which is particularly important in the food-processing industry as cleanliness takes top priority in the production process there and they are resistant to high-pressure jet cleaners. Therefore, the enclosure is also equipped with a special hygienic locking device. A large mounting plate reaching to the sloping part of the roof provides plenty of space for housing all component groups inside the enclosure.

In addition, häwa will exhibit its variable X-frame machine rack. X-frame is a modular frame system which offers maximum flexibility in the implementation of individual solutions. Complex machine frames can be built out of few components within the shortest time. X-frame combines the flexibility and modular assembly of aluminum profiles with the stability of sheet steel frames. The patented X-frame is not only a supporting frame, but also a functional frame. The interior of the frame is freely accessible owing to external, lockable flaps and it can be used easily and quickly as cable duct and for housing electronic and pneumatic components. A trouble-free subsequent mounting of cables and other media is possible at any time.

X-frame is a modular frame system which offers maximum flexibility in the implementation of individual solutions. Complex machine frames can be built out of few components within shortest time. X-frame combines the flexibility and modular assembly of aluminum profiles with the stability of sheet steel frames. The patented X-frame is not only a supporting frame, but also a functional frame. The interior of the frame is freely accessible owing to external, lockable flaps and it can be used easily and quickly as cable duct and for housing electronic and pneumatic components.
Häwa developed for the machine company ficonTEC Service GmbH two standardized X-frame cells for the assembly of micro-optical and opto-electrical components. These cells are available either in stainless steel (V2A) for the often required use in clean rooms, or in powder coated sheet steel. The design of the sheet steel and stainless steel versions are both based on the same drawings offering thereby a quick and economic production without additional construction effort. The ficonTEC high-precision machines call for a vibration resistant and sturdy working platform. The X-frame machine rack must be able to support various axis systems and it must be possible to adapt and extend the rack to unusual user requirements without modification of the current construction or design. The häwa X-frame machine racks are the optimum solution for these high requirements for stability, modularity, extensibility and individuality.
Advantages of X-frame in comparison to fixed aluminum frames
häwa X-frame racks offers a significantly higher basic stability than aluminum profile frames. As already described, the X-frame functional frame is not only a support frame. Owing to the large cross sections, the interior of the struts offer the possibility for a safe housing of hoses, cables, wires, maintenance units, valve terminals, 19”-slide-in modules and many other components. A trouble-free subsequent mounting of cables and other media is possible at any time.  Light curtains can also be mounted easily, quickly and in a protected manner in corner struts.
Advantages of X-frame in comparison to welded tubular steel constructions
In contrary to welded tubular steel constructions, the X-frame system with its modular construction is individually extendable. With the X-frame system it is even possible to realize easily and quickly complex constructions without increased effort. Owing to the large quantity of tilts, large cross sections of the frame parts and the selectable material thicknesses, the X-frame rack is very sturdy and torsion-resistant. All necessary drillings and cut-outs are already considered when cutting the struts whereby time-consuming, additional drilling and milling of the frame parts can be avoided. Welded parts and threaded bolts can be easily integrated in the frame. 
Furthermore, häwa introduces at the Sindex their new battery hydraulic punch Powerlec Vario.  With a powerful battery,  compact dimensions and the low weight (only 2.3 kg),  the Powerlec Vario is particularly suitable for the use in space limited and high performance applications. The user-friendly punch is equipped with a rotating and pivoting punch head. The punching center point can be controlled easily by means of the die with cross-hair marker, situated directly at the unit. By using 19 mm bolts, it is possible to realize cut-outs up to 80 mm diameter in 2.5 mm thick sheet metals. The unit is delivered with a threaded reducing bush whereby it is possible to use the device also with 9.5 mm bolts.

news-98 Thu, 25 Feb 2016 12:05:00 +0100 häwa Introduces a Certified Energy Management System https://www.haewa.com/news/informationen-abonnieren/rss-feed-subscription.html?tx_news_pi1%5Bnews%5D=98&tx_news_pi1%5Bcontroller%5D=News&tx_news_pi1%5Baction%5D=detail&cHash=31a4788102b4b6aaa02c4bc8b13385ea häwa GmbH has recently obtained the energy certification to the internationally recognized DIN EN ISO 50001 standard. häwa GmbH, the manufacturer of cabinet and enclosure systems, has recently obtained the energy certification to the internationally recognized DIN EN ISO 50001 standard. The certificate which includes the locations Wain, Bad Wörishofen, Crimmitschau, Duisburg and Maintal has a validity of three years and will be monitored by an accredited certification body on an annual basis.

The standard, which has been published in Germany since the end of 2011, aims essentially at purposefully reducing the specific energy consumption and achieving a sustainable increase in energy efficiency in a continual improvement process.
To reach this goal, häwa is using a systematic approach whereby all energy fluxes in the company are measured, monitored and analyzed, all machines, equipment and processes regularly examined for optimization possibilities and the staff involved sensitized and trained accordingly.
The total annual energy consumption of häwa GmbH amounts to around eight million kilowatt-hours with an energy mix consisting of electricity, gas, heating oil and transport fuels. With a share of 65 %, electricity and gas represent the main energy sources for the processes. The Wain location accounts for a total annual consumption of about 4.5 million kilowatt-hours in electricity and gas. The electricity consumption alone corresponds to the annual consumption of 600 4-person households. By installing a photovoltaic unit on the Wain premises, almost one million CO2-neutral kilowatt-hours are now being generated per year.
The new energy management system, whose application is voluntary, aims to achieve a more efficient and sustainable use of the available energy resources as well as a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions (CO2) and other related environmental impacts. Hence, each kilowatt-hour of electricity from conventional power plants, which has not been consumed, means CO2 savings of 0.5 kilogram.
A core element of the energy management system is to continually set strategic and operative energy targets, the implementation and effects of which will be reviewed through internal audits and evaluated and documented in an annual energy efficiency report.

news-93 Wed, 25 Nov 2015 13:46:00 +0100 “We Bring Your Ideas to Life“ häwa Concepts for Customized Control Cabinet Solutions https://www.haewa.com/news/informationen-abonnieren/rss-feed-subscription.html?tx_news_pi1%5Bnews%5D=93&tx_news_pi1%5Bcontroller%5D=News&tx_news_pi1%5Baction%5D=detail&cHash=4bec31751bf0b3f12c345dec6ee2c7b2 häwa defines customer-specific standard with individual cabinet solutions Owing to the individual consulting approach häwa GmbH offers control cabinets that always meet the customers' specific requirements exactly. The cabinet manufacturer distinguishes between four different levels of customization, which the company showed at the SPS IPC Drives in Hall 5, booths 170 and 270.

The customer actually needs rarely a complete customized development. In most cases an individual construction of the cabinet with adequate accessories is sufficient. Special individual components, in particular cut-outs and additional mounting holes will, for example, optimize the cabinet concept. Furthermore, air-conditioning requirements, the cabinet construction as well as the design have to be defined together with the customer. The challenge is to find the best cabinet concept for each installation without overloading it!

On its exhibition stand, häwa showed various cabinets to demonstrate the different levels of customization, based on the proven „häwa option“ from A to D.  häwa's Option A represents the classic range of stock and catalog products, in which the customers themselves carry out all necessary individualization.

Option B describes cabinets which consist mainly of standard components but include some special features such as individual cut-outs and special individual components. As an example, häwa showed a stainless steel cabinet as well as a modular cabinet, which both included slight modifications of the standard components.

With Option C, häwa implements specific customer design specifications to create an individual solution. This may include customized measurements,  mounting systems or even a special surface treatment. At the exhibition, häwa presented a cabinet which was designed for packing machines. This is always located on the top of the machine, and a concealed cable routing space with a defined useful height is integrated in the cabinet base. All cabinet surfaces are fully welded without joints and grinded. Furthermore, häwa showed as an example for Option C, a stainless steel cabinet for the food-processing industry. All surfaces that are in contact with the product are welded gap-free with continuous welds. The entire construction is resistant to high-pressure jet cleaners and is UL-certified.

Option D covers all completely specific constructions. Everything is individually planned, from dimensions, accessibility, protection class, load carrying capacity and cooling to the interior fitting. As an example of such new constructions, häwa showed an enclosure for the use in locomotives and mobile carts. häwa has the welding certificate for rail vehicles and components, certification level CL2 according to DIN EN 15085-2 issued by the German Federal Railway Authority (EBA). The production of these special enclosures and cabinets is only possible due to the verifiable qualification of the häwa welding specialists, since there are special requirements to the dynamic load carrying capacity.

At the SPS IPC Drives in hall 5 at stand 170 and 270, the häwa GmbH presents its variable machine frame X-frame by means of a new application example. X-frame is a modularly designed frame system for the construction of individual machine frames and housings. In the shortest time complex machine frames are constructed from only a few single components that combine the flexibility and the modular construction of aluminum profiles with the firmness of steel frames. The patented X-frame is not only a supporting frame but an operational framework. The interior of the frame is freely accessible through the lockable flaps which are placed on the outside, and is quickly and easily usable as cable duct and as housing of electronic and pneumatic components.

For the machine manufacturer ficon TEC Service GmbH that produces special machines for the assembly of microoptical and optoelectronic modules, häwa has developed two for the company standardized X-frame cells. They can be ordered by ficon TEC optionally from stainless steel (V2A) for the often demanded application in clean rooms or in powder-coated sheet steel. The sheet steel as well as the stainless steel version of the cells are both based on the same drawing set and are therefore very cost-efficient in production. Additional construction working is no more necessary. For the precisely working machines of ficon TEC it is very important that the working platform stands stable and with the least amount of vibration possible. The enclosure has to be able to take in various axis systems and also be extensible or adjustable corresponding user requirements, without the need to think about new constructions including new designs each time. For these high requirements placed on stability, modularity, extensibility and nevertheless given individuality, the X-frame machine frames from häwa, which are shown at the SPS IPC Drives, are the perfect solution.

Advantages of X-frame in comparison to fixed aluminum frames
X-frame from häwa offers a far higher stability as machine frames with aluminum profile. As described before the X-frame operational framework is not only a skeleton. Thanks to its large cross-section the interior room of the struts offers the possibility of the protected installation of hoses, lines, cables, maintenance units, valve terminal, 19” modules and many more components in the frame. A retroactive laying of cables and other means is with the X-frame possible without any problems at any time. Also light curtains can be installed quickly and easily in the corner struts. Furthermore, all components are very well protected inside the frame.


Advantages of X-frame in comparison to welded tubular steel construction
In comparison to welded tubular steel constructions the X-frame is flexibly extensible thanks to its modular construction. Also elaborate forms can be integrated into the X-frame easily and quickly without any further effort. Through the high amount of folds, the large cross-section of the frame parts as well as the selectable material thickness, the X-frame is very stable and torsion resistant. All drillings and excavations needed were already taken into account when cutting to size the struts. Therefore, the additional and time-consuming treatment of the frame parts by drilling and milling machines will be avoided. Also, welding parts and threaded bolts can be easily integrated into the framework.

news-73 Wed, 26 Nov 2014 11:23:00 +0100 Cooling and ventilation solutions for cabinets from häwa https://www.haewa.com/news/informationen-abonnieren/rss-feed-subscription.html?tx_news_pi1%5Bnews%5D=73&tx_news_pi1%5Bcontroller%5D=News&tx_news_pi1%5Baction%5D=detail&cHash=1fd1dcfd934d9add5ba5f792bb7a538f At the SPS IPC Drives in hall 5 at stand 170 and 270 the häwa GmbH presents cooling and ventilation solutions for cabinets. At the SPS IPC Drives in hall 5 at stand 170 and 270 the häwa GmbH presents cooling and ventilation solutions for cabinets. The exhibited cooling units KF1900 EX-P a cooling device with condenser with Microchannel Technology and KF 1000 RD, a filter fan with EC Technology constitute only a small extract from häwa’s vast portfolio of cooling solutions.


häwa’s new KF1900 EX-P cooling unit was designed for the application as attachment in the EX-P area and is deliverable with an enclosure from sheet steel or stainless steel. The EX-P cooling unit provides the degree of protection IP65 and the installed fans are approved for temperature class T4 (EX approvals external fans II 2G EEx d IIC T4). The display in front for the indication and adjustment of all parameters is placed behind a special protective cover. The KF1900 EX-P cooling unit is very easy to maintain, deliverable in versions of roof construction and of sidewall extension and is particularly well suited for the customer-specific application in the chemical sector, on offshore platforms or in refineries.


häwa’s cooling unit KF 1000 RD with sheet steel enclosure that is executed without filters and therefore, requiring little maintenance benefits from a slim design and minimal installation depth concerning partial installation. It offers a useful cooling output of 1000 Watt through its integrated condensate vaporization and was designed for an operating temperature range of +20°C to +50°C. A display in front provides the easy retrieval and setting of all functions and parameters. The KF 1000 RD cooling unit is perfectly suitable for the application in cabinets for industrial use.


häwa’s product portfolio includes a number of cooling units with condenser in Microchannel Technology and a useful cooling output from 500 up to 3000 Watt. Thanks to the Microchannel Technology the installation depth of the condenser is reduced by approximately 50 mm. Furthermore, the efficiency level of the devices increases since a part of the saved depth is used in order to achieve a more efficient flow of air around the condenser. Through the smaller size less refrigerants are needed (approximately 40% less than with conventional condenser tube-set), what significantly reduces the weight of the cooling units and contributes at the same time to environmental protection. Additionally, a enhanced thermal conductivity and higher corrosion protection can be achieved by the exclusive use of aluminum (whereas conventional condensers consist of copper and aluminum). From a useful cooling output of 1400 W, the devices offer an integrated condensate vaporization.


Filter fans with EC-Technology from häwa are executed very flat (only 6 mm looming) and offer an autonomous and infinitely variable rotational speed regulation. The EC-Technology involves that the fan runs with only a partial load and the rotational speed is adjusted by a module of the respective temperature inside the cabinet. Thus, power consumption and noise level decrease considerably, as the fan operates less often under full load and maximum rotational speed. Moreover, life expectancy of the device increases through less processes of switching on and off. The application of the filter fan with EC-Technology is particularly profitable where the power dissipation inside the enclosure fluctuates heavily or the up to now used filter fans have only short starting times/runtimes.

The EC technology means, that the fan (after exceeding a minimum temperature value) only operates with part load and adjusts the rotational speed of the respective temperature inside the cabinet. Therefore, the electric power consumption and the noise level are reduced considerably since the fan only rarely has to operate under full load with maximum rotational speed. Furthermore, the life expectancy of the device is increased by less switching on and off processes. The application of the filter fan with EC technology is especially profitable where the power dissipation inside the cabinet varies strongly or the previously used filter fan has only very short run time.

Integrated fastening clips from V2A-spring steel allow an easy and quick snap-in installation with secure hold of the fan. An additional screw fastening is not necessary. With the serially foamed sealing the degree of protection IP 44 is achieved. Through the utilization of the filter mat G4 from häwa, even the degree of protection IP54 can be achieved. With two slots, changing the filter is very easy and quick. A coding tap prevents the wrong insertion of the front grid.

The häwa GmbH offers a large portfolio of tools which are especially destined for customers who still screw their cabinets together themselves or carry out an individualization of their cabinet solution themselves.

Punching tools from häwa for working on sheet steel (up to 3.2 mm), stainless steel sheet (up to 2.5 mm), aluminum sheet (up to 4.0 mm) and plastic (up to 6.0 mm) with punching pumps are location-independent and economically applicable. In addition, they are simple and clean in application and the punching waste is easily removable. Dies with a cross-line mark facilitate the exact alignment. Also existing outbreaks can be extended with special punching tools. Since they operate free from burrs, a reworking is not necessary. Punching tools from häwa are also available according to customer requirements.

If there are no holes häwa’s step drill bits and “twist drill with thread cutter” come into operation. Step drill bits operate nearly free from burrs and are suitable for drilling round gaps as well as thin sheet metals up to a diameter of 30.5 mm. Due to a sharp drill bit pre-drilling is not necessary. The “twist drill with thread cutter” drills and cuts threads in a single working step and without any tool change which brings you significant savings in time during the application. They are available for metric standard threads and fine threads.

The mobile and powerful hydraulic pull cylinder Power 25 offers a stroke of 40 mm concerning significantly increased traction force in comparison to a standard cylinder. It was developed for special applications for which the common punching power of a standard cylinder is insufficient. The Power 25-cylinder is delivered with two actuation screws with a diameter of 9.5 mm and 19 mm and can be connected to pumps with hydraulic hose through its quick-action coupling. Standard punching tools with a 9.5 mm and 19 mm thread can also be used. For very large cross sections an actuation screw with a M25 thread is used. Therefore, round holes up to a diameter of 245 mm, square holes up to 200 mm and rectangular holes up to 280 mm diagonal are possible.

The Quick-Press 400 with a usable operating depth up to 400 mm is ideally suited for the workshop equipment for a quick and precise punching of holes without pre-drilling of enclosures, terminal boxes, small doors, cable entry plates and plain plates. Even enclosures with a depth of up to 300 mm can be punched at the enclosure bottom with this press. Round holes up to a diameter of 40.5 mm, square holes up to 25.4 mm and rectangular holes up to 35 mm diagonal are possible in 2.5 mm sheet steel. The punch or rather die can be used at the top or at the bottom.

Furthermore, the Quick-Press 400 is equipped with all conveniences: besides the double-acting hydraulic cylinder with a laser center-indication it has an easy running, ball bearing depth stop and a switchable electric control with automatic operation or inching operation. An adjustable time relay controls the back stroke concerning following punches.

Through the micro-channel technology the installation depth is reduced by approximately 50 mm and the efficiency of the device increases since a part of the depth saving is used for achieving a more efficient flow of air around the condenser.

 

Concerning cooling units with micro-channel technology, the condenser similar to car radiators is designed to be flat which allows significant savings in installation depth. Due to the smaller size less refrigerant is needed (approximately 40 % less than conventional condenser tube-set), which significantly reduces the weight of the cooling units and at the same time contributes to environmental protection. Through the exclusive use of aluminum a better thermal conductivity and higher protection against corrosion can be achieved (conventional condensers in contrast consist of copper and aluminum).

 

häwa's cooling units with condenser in micro-channel technology have got a lid with the new häwa design and are prepared for extension, installation or partial installation. A mat against fibrous material protects from heavy soiling. Starting from 1400 watts cooling power, the devices offer an integrated evaporation of condensate. Through a display at the front all functions are indicated and also the upper as well as the lower operation temperature can be set. The whole product line is designed for an operation-temperature range from +20 up to +55 degrees Celsius and thanks to CE and cUL approvals perfectly suitable for export.

Thus, energy savings of 30% can be achieved in comparison to systems with a fixed rotational speed and a lower noise level, since the compressor always adapts its speed to the required performance. Since the KF 100 DROP IN has not to be switched on or off, the wear of the components is reduced and the cooling unit therefore, has a longer service life. Furthermore, a more constant temperature inside the cabinet can be assured by a cooling unit with inverter technology, which has a positive effect on the service life of the electronic and electric components in the cabinet.

The KF 1000 DROP IN has a cooling capacity of at least 300 w up to a maximum of 1000 w and is designed for an operating temperature range of 20°C to 55°C. Thanks to a display at the front, the nominal temperature inside the cabinet as well as various parameters (e. g. inside temperature, upper/lower alarm temperature) can be regulated and triggered comfortably.

The integrated condensate evaporation requires no further electric power. With its variable cooling performance, the KF 100 DROP IN is perfectly suitable for application in cabinets with different load ranges, for controls that do not produce any dissipation losses when idling.

news-57 Tue, 22 Apr 2014 15:33:00 +0200 häwa’s fire protection enclosures offer the maximal total conductor cross-section of all cables in the market https://www.haewa.com/news/informationen-abonnieren/rss-feed-subscription.html?tx_news_pi1%5Bnews%5D=57&tx_news_pi1%5Bcontroller%5D=News&tx_news_pi1%5Baction%5D=detail&cHash=727b2690caa62623ac9894aac800f99f häwa gets new national technical approvals according to the latest guidelines of the German Institute of Construction Technology (DiBT) häwa GmbH lately received new national technical approvals (ABZ) for its fire protection enclosures according to the latest guidelines of the German Institute of Construction Technology (DiBT). According to the new approvals Z-86.1-20 und Z-86.1-22 of the DiBT, häwa’s HFA-fire enclosures are able to resist fire of at least 30 min resp. 90 min. In comparison to the past, indications about the cables inserted are obligatory now according to new guidelines. Here the competitive advantage of häwa’s fire protection enclosures is existent, since they have the maximum permitted total conductor cross-section of all cables in the market relative to the housing volume. Already at overall dimensions of 600mm x 1000mm x 600mm (WxHxD) single cables up to 4x240mm² and a total conductor cross-section of all cables of 3362mm² can be inserted into the fire protection enclosures via the cable inlet. With smaller housing volumes linear interpolation is possible.

For users the total conductor cross-section of all cables in the national technical approvals (ABZ) of the enclosures is very important. If the permitted total conductor cross-section of all cables of a single cable resp. of all inserted cables exceeds the cross section indicated in the national technical approvals (ABZ), the user can not incorporate its electrical device in the specific enclosure and has to buy a possibly bigger and more expensive enclosure in order to be allowed to insert the quantity of cable needed. Already 10 years ago, häwa recognized that the customer is in his applications more flexible the more cable is permitted for the respective enclosure size. Therefore, back then häwa had his fire protection enclosures proved according to the worst-case-principle and had national technical approval.

Another advantage of häwa’s fire protection enclosure is its flexibility in size and assignment of the sealing of cables. häwa’s sealing of cables can be mounted on, under, as well as sideways. Additionally, there are several alternatives for the direct inserting of the cables or for the connection of a fire-protection cable duct.

Partly, these ducts are also available according to customer requirements (type1201 and 1206) in order to satisfy any customer’s needs, e.g. of special stability through welded-on connecting flanges. All ducts are very stable with a minimum sheet metal thickness of 1.5mm and partly with flanges of 3mm. Except type 1201, all ducts have the possibility of inserting openly and continuously. The duct type 1206 here even reaches still IP54. Reductions of one cross section to another are also within a type of ducts available.

The duct type 1201 offer a particularly high degree of protection of IP65 and is able to tolerate high mechanical stress. In addition, it offers a continuous and reliable grounding possibility through ground bolts. For this type is also a bellows available, in order to avoids the transmission of occurring vibrations.


The duct types 1204 and 1207 benefit of the possibility to be continuously and openly inserted, even after rotating the channels by 90°. Thus, they are additionally very well suited for retrofitting. An extensive range of molded parts are available.

The duct type 1206 also offers the possibility of inserting openly and continuously and reaches therefore still a degree of protection of IP54. Through the usage of “connection U’s” this type is particularly stable. Through available partitions type 1206 is perfectly suited for the common but separate laying of electric cables and air ducts as well as hydraulic lines. Also retrofitting can be executed easily through the possibility of inserting openly.

Compact wall mounted cabinets of the SN series - with the patented concealed 180° hinges - are now available from häwa. Their cabinet specialists designed this relevant detail to improve the flexibility and handling of wall mounted cabinets.
In comparison to the otherwise standard concealed hinges of many competitors, to leave an opening of only 130°, the häwa hinge can open completely to 180°. This has the advantage that the housing wall can be installed in escape routes, which helps e.g. companies to fulfill regulatory requirements.

In addition, this type of hinge increases the flexibility because it is designed for opening in both directions. This means that the user can determine - or even at a later date change! - the direction in which the door to the compact cabinet opens. The hinge provides enough robustness for heavy loads up to 80kg and is available in steel or stainless steel finish.

The door hinge with its smaller gap is an attractive new design to the wall cabinet. This allows the cabinets to clean better. With a maximum protection of IP66/Nema 4 they can even withstand adverse environmental conditions.

The UL-approved cabinet SN Series includes over 70 different sizes which are available in stainless steel or steel finish. With only one type of mounting rail it offers many expansion possibilities. The optional and flexible systems accessories help fulfill specific customer requirements.

news-9 Thu, 18 Jul 2013 07:31:00 +0200 How individual does a cabinet have to be? https://www.haewa.com/news/informationen-abonnieren/rss-feed-subscription.html?tx_news_pi1%5Bnews%5D=9&tx_news_pi1%5Bcontroller%5D=News&tx_news_pi1%5Baction%5D=detail&cHash=f02c3f3ee5766d4451d15b12f77228b2 For the first time häwa defines the different levels – Customisation with a concept Thanks to the individual consulting approach häwa GmbH offers cabinets according to customer needs. The cabinet manufacturer distinguishes between four individual levels of customisation.

 

It is rare that a customer actually needs a complete customer specified development. In most cases an individual assembly of the cabinet with respective system accessories is sufficient. Special individual components, particular knockouts and additional drill holes for assembly optimise the cabinet concept in the installation. Furthermore, the cooling requirements, methods of cabinet assembly and design aspects have to be defined with the customer. The challenge is to find the optimum cabinet concept for each installation without overloading it!

On their stand häwa displays, with help of different cabinets, the four levels of customisation, following the tried and tested “häwa-option” from A to D:

häwa’s option A describes the classic warehouse and catalogue programme, in which the customer chooses themselves the individualisation. A thought out – but not overloaded – cabinet concept is compulsory. häwa displays such a thought out bayed cabinet of type H395. Including mounted “Lütze assembly system”. The combination of the Lütze system in conjunction with a häwa cabinet results in a high user-friendliness, optimum space utilisation, reduced assembly and installation times as well as an optimised ventilation in the cabinet.

Option B describes those cabinets, which still consist mainly of standard components, but include some customization like individual knockouts and special individual components. häwa demonstrates a cabinet, that in this case has been developed especially for molding machines, in which the mounting panel as well as the top and bottom cover are individually processed and mounted according to customer specifications. We therefore deal with a derivation from the standard bayed cabinet. The advantage: The customer can choose from a wide range of accessory components, as these can be adapted from the standard range. The cabinet is a completely finished product according to customer specifications – including delivery to the customer site – at a fair price.

With option C häwa implements the customer design specifications. This can start with customer specific measurements, continue with a customer specific assembly system and possibly end with a special surface treatment. At the exhibition häwa demonstrates a cabinet with a width of 650 mm and a height of 2100 mm (including pedestal) that has a depth of 950 mm. Details like bespoke doors, side walls, cable entry plate and EMC gaskets are tailored to the application profile, in this instance to the use in paper production plants.

 

Option D covers all bespoke customer developments. Under the motto “back to the machines” these cabinets are usually used directly at the machine head. Everything is individually planned, from the dimensions, accessibility, and degree of protection, load capacity and cooling, to the interior equipment. As an example of these new developments häwa demonstrates a controlling cabinet built to customer specifications with single-winged hinged doors at the front and back.

Not only the car industry strives to use lean production, but it also gets more and more common in mechanical engineering. Its advantages are for example the reduction of stock levels, reduction of processing times of products and the just-in-time-philosophy. For these reasons more and more mechanical engineers are prompted to restructure their production. This also has an effect on suppliers. They rise to the challenge of providing their products – like the corresponding cabinets – just-in-time.

At the SPS IPC Drives 2012 in Hall 5, Stand 170 and 270, häwa GmbH showed how the company can include their individual cabinet components into the stages of customer production using the example of a simulated production line. The modular design of häwa cabinets facilitates these processes and allows the company to react very flexibly to the supply requirements of their customers. Generally, the mounting plate is supplied first, then the doors and afterwards the side walls. Finally, the interior is supplied.

The just-in-time supply of our customers can be summarised by using the ‘guiding principle of 6 Rs’: the right part, in the right quality, at the right time, in the right quantity, at the right price, to the right location” explains Christian Feger, responsible for corporate planning and development at häwa. “This way our own processing times are also reduced and this way we can react even faster to our customers’ needs. We can also increase our internal quality standards because we cannot allow faulty components with just-in-time supply to customers” adds Feger.

As a manufacturer of cabinets made to customers’ specifications häwa puts focus on testing in house. The company invested in a new testing stall that is laid out for water ingress testing in compliance with IPX5, IPX6 as well as NEMA. NEMA-tests are necessary in the USA, in Mexico and in Canada – and are comparable to the IP degrees of protection in Europe.The centerpiece of the new lab for water ingress testing by häwa in Wain / Baden-Württemberg is a water pump which has been calibrated by a special accredited testing lab. Depending on the testing procedure it ensures the demanded liters/minute and also provides jet nozzles with the appropriate inside diameter. häwa can carry out technically correct different water ingress tests on site. In presence of an inspector from an official testing institute it is also possible to issue the correspondent official testing reports.

Through further testing possibilities häwa underlines anew the high quality standards of the company. As a manufacturer of cabinets made to customers’ specifications, the company is now even better able to successfully realize developments with their customers. Should the testing procedures reveal possible faults in new developments or prototypes, the company can react faster. Another advantage is that all people involved in the development – from engineers to the sales force and customers – can follow the tests in house and view the entire technical documentation immediately.

Due to limited capacities, accredited testing labs have often long waiting lists for official tests. häwa, however, is very flexible through their own testing capacities. The company also ensures that it is now also possible to test all sizes of cabinets, for example heavy cabinets or very big cabinets made to customers’ specifications.

Up to this point, häwa was an offical X-frame partner and European manufacturer of X-frame components. The takeover strengthens häwa’s functional individual cabinet systems concept. The X-frame system is integrated into the existing distribution network, and a separate häwa team with new employees is set up to support this purpose.
For a seamless transition of the X-frame Systems into häwa’s portfolio, it is envisaged that the staff of X-frame Systems continue to work until the end of 2011 on behalf of häwa for X-frame Systems and then transfer to other areas of the former business partner. Managing director of X-frame Systems Mr. Klaus Wurmhöringer says that “This is the best solution for both sides and enables a perfect integration of X-frame Systems with häwa. I am elated that the integration into the production can grow under the umbrella of häwa, as the variable frame systems is ideally suited to the individual cabinet and enclosure configurations of häwa.’
“We are very happy that the take-over of X-frame Systems went this smoothly’’, said Mr. Markus Jung, CEO of häwa. “We are convinced that the variable frame system of Xframe is an ideal compliment to our existing product portfolio. The integration of X-frame against the background of our existing sustainable development, that cabinets must be machine integratable, has become increasingly important’’ added Mr Jung.

X-frame is a variable frame system with a modular design principle, for creating equipment racks and enclosures of various designs. It combines the flexibility of aluminium profiles with standarized modules. Out of a few individual components a complex machine frame can be assembled within a short time.

The X-frame housing module components are manufactured from sturdy sheet steel and enables the optimum implementation of various customer appplications with a professional appearance - even with singular order quantities. Accessories of many profile manufacturers are easily connected to the X-frame components, providing customers with a wide selection of accessories for different applications.

Generally the X-frame systems is used as modular single cells for linear or rotary applications. As a single cell, the X-frame system provides a flexible cost-effective standard solution that is easily extendable with excisting components. For the construction of linear applications, X-frame components can be lined-assembled as single- or double elements. For rotary applications, the X-frame can be assembled to create square, rectangular, 6- and 8-angular applications.

The Pushpa clinic of the “Doctors for the Third World” is a children's hospital in Calcutta which has 30 beds for children up to 14 years of age who suffer from tuberculosis. It was founded in August 2007 and is entirely funded by donations. The hospital has about 20 employees plus two Indian doctors who take care of the children. Monthly expenses are approximately € 3,500 which must be covered for by these donations.

The “Doctors for the third world” are very proud of this children’s hospital in Calcutta. It is one of their showpieces. The funding is nevertheless a permanent concern. Therefore, the organization is always on the lookout for companies who can help them carry their monthly expenses. And häwa is very pleased to help; "We admire  the Doctors for the Third World” for their tireless dedication to the children in Calcutta and are delighted that our contribution is able to help with the upkeep of this hospital" said Mr. Arno Mueller of häwa.
