Go new ways
At the turn of the year 2010/2011, the ROLEC development department under the leadership of the housing father Friedhelm Rose presented a completely new product. The first series of enclosures in a round design. Your name: aluDISC. A case that is reminiscent of a wristwatch in its shape. A design highlight. But that's not all. A short time later, the product developers show another design hit: profiPLUS - a design support arm system that uses the shape of the earth and the rotation around its own axis as the basis for a spherical joint. When it comes to the choice of materials, too, ROLEC has always been eager to experiment and innovative. After the original beginnings with aluminum, programs made of ABS and polyester have been added over the years. But it was a completely different material that Friedhelm Rose was aiming for in his latest idea: stainless steel. Of course, there has long been a large market for stainless steel housings. But these are usually attached by means of holes in the bottom of the housing, which can lead to leaks. Another method of mounting is to use mounting tabs on the outside of the case, which doesn't look particularly nice. The idea: the tried and tested ROLEC single-channel technology. So Rose developed inoCASE together with his team. A housing concept, which is provided with a small tube in the housing corner through which the housing can be mounted. At the same time, the cover is also attached through this channel, which is separated from the sealing space. An idea that is as ingenious as it is simple. And inoCASE has another highlight: its size. The smallest series housing of the inoCASE mini series is with 70x100x50 mm the smallest stainless steel housing in the world. With this product, ROLEC finally offers the appropriate space for even the smallest technology. Until now, the housings available on the market were often much too big. At the end of 2015, ROLEC brought another new product onto the market, which once again set a clear design standard. The premium control housing multiPANEL. A perfect symbiosis of design and technology. A product that met with enthusiasm among machine builders and users from day one. multiPANEL shows itself to be the product innovation of the 2000s. Numerous new elements were developed for the profiPLUS design support arm system as early as 2016, and additional components were also available for the multiPANEL command housing, which has been successful from the start, to complement the portfolio. In 2018, ROLEC added the design HMI / control housing profiPANEL. With its concept, the profile housing is in line with the current trend and is quickly becoming the favorite housing of many customers with HMI built-in panels.
