More machine builders are implementing Lean product design to meet the needs of individual customers. These modular production cells need to be lean, cost-effective and individually configurable. Careful component selection can help make these systems more economical and flexible. In particular, terminal blocks with push-in technology are an excellent choice for these designs. Push-in terminal blocks not only reduce wiring time and operator fatigue, but also meet the stringent safety requirements of the machine building industry.
