Schaumburg-based Rittal Corporation, the world's largest industrial and IT enclosures manufacturer, recently created a new business unit called Rittal Automation Systems.
The new unit was formed by adding sister company Kiesling Maschinentechnik into the Rittal organization. It will enhance Rittal’s range of solutions for panel building and switchgear engineering through key machining and handling technologies.
“The integration of Kiesling into Rittal and the creation of Rittal Automation Systems offers customers solutions to increase productivity by automating previously manual modification and wiring processes," Rittal Automation Systems Business Manager Mike Herzog said. "The modularity of the Rittal product lines also lends itself well to automated machining and handling, which makes this a valuable addition to the Rittal family. The capabilities offered by our fully automated machining centers reduce the amount of human labor required to process modified enclosures which results in time- and cost-efficient production, increases quality, adds repeatability to processes and reduces lead-times to customers.”
