CUSTOM MADE CONTROL PANELS
Industrial control panels manufacturing is an important area of expertise for us since we´ve been building a wide variety of them for more than 10 years

Over the course of the years, we´ve built a variety of control panels ranging in size and complexity. Both our staff and personnel at the shop floor are well trained to assemble industrial control panels that meet high quality and safety standards

Husky Injection Molding Systems
Husky Injection Molding Equipment LTD is  the leading worldwide injectiong molding equipment manufacturer. They are an international company with plants in  Bolton Canada, China and India

The machines they build serve different markets, being the food and beverage industry their most important one

Project development

Early in 2008, Husky´s sourcing team visit several potential suppliers on the Northeast region of our country, searching for a company that had both the technical and financial capabilities to build their industrial control panels.

After visiting and analyzing more than 10 different companies, Newland was awarded the project and in May of that same year, Newland´s management team visit Husky´s plant in Bolton Canada to get to kow the products and receive intense training. Part of the training included raw material reviews, production standard times, kanban systems, etc.

Together with the sourcing team, we implemented a supplier transition program that consisted in transfering all Husky´s suppliers to Newland (control panel related). During a 3 month period of time, Husky´s sourcing team made all the proper instroductions while Newland´s team setup more than 70 suppliers.

In parallel, layout at Newland´s plant was designed and implemented as well as training for all direct personnel. In addition to the training that the management team received, Husky personnel visited Newland several times to continue training at the shop floor
 
Husky was building their control panels in-house, resolving all type of production and sourcing issues. The difficulty involved in building their control panels was a challenge to the company, mainly due to the fact that panel building isn´t part of their "core business". By outsourcing they panels to us, Husky was able to focus more on their core business, free up space, focus people to value added actitivities, reduce purchasing and expediting activities, etc

After 6 months of transition, early in May 2009, Newland was building the first control panel in it´s Apodaca Facility successfully starting a formal business relationship with Husky 

Husky´s control panels

All of Husky´s injection molding machines have a main control panel which typically had more than 1,000 raw materials ranging from a small label to a large drive. On average, each panel required more than 300 man hours to build due to the complexity and size (typically 5 meters long)

The manufacturing process consisted of a mechanical assembly first, followed by electrical wiring process and ended up with an inspection and a 8 hour test

Terminal boxes

Heater Boxes

Some of Husky´s injection molding machines required a couple of heater boxes, both assembled at Newland.

The process for building this junction boxes included instalation of din rail, terminal blocks, components and mostly wiring, all made at Newland

Siemens-Carrier
Carrier´s Plant in Monterrey was importing their control panels from Siemens´s plant at Atlanta Georgia. As part of a cost reduction and lead time strategy, Carrier introduced us to Siemens to come up with an local solution

Project development

Early in 2006, one of Carrier´s plants based in Monterrey presented us the opportunity to meet with their control panel supplier to explore the possibility of building them in Monterrey. 

At that time, Siemens´s plant in Alpharetta Georgia was building and shipping Carrier´s panels to Monterrey. Siemens was interested in moving their production lines to Mexico through a strategic business partner. They were looking for a company that had not only assembly experience but that was able to import all raw mateterials into Mexico without any issue.

Together with our sister company Whis (Wire Harnesses Integrating Solutions), we were awarded the project and two months after, we were running the first line at our plant

Siemens provided us with all the raw materials and Newland provided the space, direct labor, management and daily deliveries to the end customer
For more than 3 years, we were building 18 industrial control panels per day, testing them and delivering them to Carrier twice a day. We offered local service, engineering changes on the fly, new product introduction, etc
Each panel had it´s own production ticket, with a specific bill of materils and building layout since each one was one of 75,000 possible configurations. On average, each panel required at least 10 man hours to build
