All Panels Are Not Created Equal

TURCK Engineered Packaged Systems (TEPS) is not your typical panel shop. We are experts at our own products, so why not trust your panel needs to those who know the products the best? This experience coupled with a devoted manufacturing area makes our processes fast and flexible, and helps create a seamless partnership to develop your ideal panel.

A Partner for Success

TURCK has a reputation for building reliable global partnerships, and TEPS is no exception. Our TEPS engineers can work with customers in a variety of ways and adapt to whatever best fits their needs. TEPS creates panels populated with TURCK product, as well as product from other manufacturers.  As each panel is specified by the customer it is given a unique identifier and bill of materials.  The customer can either dictate this or choose to rely on the panel experts at TURCK to create and provide a complete design.

Build from Print

This option is for customers who know what they need in their panel and already have a design, but are looking for an expert to build the panel so they can rest easy knowing it’s done right. With TURCK’s expertise and ability to seamlessly integrate our products with those of other manufacturers, customers get a packaged solution to fit their needs; done right and built to last.

Concept to Detailed Design

Some customers know exactly what they need, while others are not so sure.  Many customers fall somewhere in between, where they might have a rough layout or even just a napkin sketch of their panel. TURCK’s experience allows us to step in at any point during the project and collaborate with customers to create the ideal solution for their applications.

Total Package

In order to take full advantage of TURCK's expertise as an automation solution provider, many customers choose to partner with us from the very beginning of their project. This allows the customer to feel confident that they are receiving a well thought out packaged system or panel, while offering the advantage of working with an industry expert to ensure an optimal solution for their challenges.

"Our design team's experience with control systems and panel design, combined with our expertise in applying TURCK products, allows us to provide an engineered packaged systems solution that is far superior than those provided by a typical panel shop."
