Worker assistance system for efficient wire preparation

In industrial control cabinet building, processes still feature a large number of manual steps. There is still considerable potential in particular in wire preparation and processing. These time-consuming activities account for more than half of the time spent on control cabinet building. The clipx WIRE assist worker assistance system from Phoenix Contact is a “tool” for exploiting this potential as far as possible in terms of economy and efficiency.

Process reliability through software-supported conductor preparation

The necessary wiring information for the software-supported completion of the processes is exported from standard CAE programs. The information is fed into the clipx WIRE assist system. In addition, an integrated editor function also allows data to be compiled manually.

Based on this data, the clipx Wire assist software guides the worker through the semi-automated conductor finishing process. At the same time, the system’s devices are controlled directly and the necessary information for further processing and wiring is visually enhanced and automatically displayed on the monitor in an easy-to-follow format.

Ergonomic workstation design

Flexibility through ergonomic design and mobility

The height-adjustable clipx WIRE assist workbench is designed to satisfy ergonomic requirements. One advantage of this is the ability to switch between sitting and standing while working and the system can also be adapted to the physical height of the worker and/or to the activity to be completed. Ideal positioning of the printing systems and automatic tools in the working area reduces the reaching distance, which is another ergonomic benefit.

The worker assistance system is mounted on four industrial-grade castors with brakes, making it very mobile. This means that the system can be used where the work needs to be performed, thus reducing unnecessary legwork.

Worker assistance system based on lean principles

Structured through the use of the 5S principle

The system concept is based on lean principles such as the 5S principle.
These principles help to eliminate disorder and optimize organization.

Short search-and-retrieve times are achieved through the use of multi-layer hard foam inserts in which each tool and aid has a predefined recess. Here, the tools that are used more frequently can be accessed easily and the tools used less often are positioned further away.

Modular and individual layout of the worker assistance system The modular design of the system gives the user the freedom to arrange their workstation as desired.

Automatic tools and printing systems can be positioned on the surface of the worktop. Accessories such as sockets, storage shelves, or containers for storing excess materials can be attached directly to the system worktop when necessary.

Modular layout of the clipx WIRE assist worker assistance system

To save space, automatic tools and printing systems can be attached directly to the worktop of the worker assistance system using the appropriate accessories. Guides are attached to the support arms and columns to hold additional accessories.

The devices can be positioned extremely flexibly in terms of height and orientation, and their positioning can be tailored to personal needs as well as the requirements of the task at hand.

With the help of the wire guide system, a wide range of different wires can be stocked and provided directly at the automatic cutting device or the cutting machine.
