Control cabinet manufacturers are faced with particular challenges in terms of the cost-effectiveness of their processes. It is often very difficult or even impossible to influence external conditions, such as the delivery capability of suppliers, their pricing policies, and the shortage of skilled workers. This is different with in-house production. Here, significant increases in efficiency can often be achieved through process optimization, the use of end-to-end software and interface solutions, through to auxiliary and automatic tools, marking systems, and assistance solutions.

We will be by your side to support you throughout the entire control cabinet building process, from engineering right through to the finished control cabinet. Discover our modular and scalable solutions for efficient control cabinet building.
Driving control cabinet building forward
The whole world is talking about an impending shortage of skilled workers. In some areas, depending on the field, there is already a shortage of qualified workers today. Experts estimate that there will be a shortage of more than 80 million workers on the market worldwide by 2030. The machine and control cabinet building sector is being hit particularly hard. We provide our customers with support in setting up their production to be future-proof and efficient: with digitally supported workflows and manufacturing documents to reduce production times and avoid errors.
Optimized cooperation between planning and manufacturing can significantly reduce production times in control cabinet building. The prerequisites for this are the continuous flow of data, complete item data, and seamless system interfaces. Our engineering software ensures these digital and seamless processes from planning, through procurement, right through to manufacturing. Continuous data flow and intelligent functions contribute significantly to increasing efficiency and provide individual and convenient process support.
Regardless of whether your control cabinet building process involves a high degree of standardization or you tend to manufacture in a batch size of 1, make the best possible use of your potential in terms of cost-effectiveness and flexibility. Whether process-supporting worker assistance systems, ergonomic hand tools and automatic tools, easy-to-use marking solutions, or seamless software solutions, we will support you throughout your entire process with modularly combinable and individually scalable concepts.
The necessary expansion and modernization of the power grid for the All Electric Society requires 16 million kilometers of new, digitalized network infrastructure. One essential factor for achieving this kind of network development involves control cabinets. We assume that around 5.5 million control cabinets will have to be produced and installed by 2030 for this network expansion alone. In order for you to be able to master and serve the increasing order volume in the future as well, Phoenix Contact has set itself the goal of making control cabinet building as efficient as possible.
