Applitech is a System Integrator located in Haarlem, the Netherlands. The company designs and manufactures control and power panels up to 6,300 A. All these panels are customized for each client. Applitech was using AutoCAD for the design of electrical schematics, but they realized this package could not meet all their expectations in terms of electrical design and automation.
SEE Electrical Advanced from IGE+XAO was chosen because of its competitive price and high level of functionality. Wiring diagrams are designed with SEE Electrical and panels layouts with SEE Electrical 3D Panel+. Once the panel layout is finalized, manufacturing data are sent automatically to the drilling machine that will actually drill and then mill the mounting plate based on this data.
Applitech also uses the additional “copper” module for SEE Electrical 3D Panel+. Copper design is made with this module and here also generation of manufacturing information (drawings, bending angles, punch holes…) is automatically sent to the copper and bending machines for immediate manufacturing without error.
Applitech enjoys SEE Electrical ease of use. In addition, powerful functionality enables the company to design electrical projects quickly (in particular “copy” function) and to manage manufacturing machines automatically.
At the electrical schematics design stage, the component database is very flexible and users can create their own part numbers if needed.
