Customization of automation products

In addition to the innovative technology and high quality products, Panasonic offers customized automation solutions that provide true customer value and superior competitive advantages. Customized automation products can reduce your production costs, avoid production errorsand improve the quality of your final product.

Panasonic has been perfecting the art of customization for over 10 years. Our experts work with customers, engineers,  purchasing and logistic departments to configure the most suitable customized solution in terms of product modification, packaging, labelling, pre-assembly and other features. High quality is assured thanks to multiple product tests that are fully documented.

To request a customized sensor or other Panasonic automation product, please contact our local office or fill out the request form.

Mounting connectors / modification of cable lengths  

Depending on the customer’s needs, Panasonic can shorten standard cables and mount connectors. Typical connectors are M8, M12 and MICRO-FIT connectors with 3 or 4 pins. Depending on the sensor model, it is also possible to integrate a connector in the sensor housing.

Multi-unit packaging  

For faster unpacking, a bigger quantity of identical products can be delivered in one single package. It is also possible to assemble different products in one set. The multi-unit package can contain for example sensors, timers & counters, a pre-programmed PLC and all dedicated cables and mounting material so that all necessary components are available faster for production.

Pre-assembly / complementary material  

Accessories that can be ordered separately are usually packed and labelled individually. To save customers from time-consuming tasks like unpacking and assembling, Panasonic offers to assemble various accessories before delivery as one of the customizing services. Also screws or mounting material of the appropriate size can be added to the package of Panasonic automation products.

Pre-configuring sensors / PLC and HMI programming  

To ensure fast installation of products in bigger production lines, sensors can be pre-configured, and controllers and human machine interfaces can be programmed before delivery.

Labelling  

Correct labelling avoids mismatching of products and improper wiring when installing a sensor in a machine. Also if the cause of an error has to be determined, labelling plays an important role as it helps with traceability and finding the product number for ordering a replacement.

Additional quality control  

To also fulfil the end customer’s quality policy, Panasonic delivers conformity declarations for RoHS, REACH and conflict minerals and of course CE compliance certificates also for the customized products.

In addition, electrical tests, crimp height measuring, and mechanical stress tests like pull force testing can be done in order to fulfil the customer’s quality control demands.
