If your machine is down, or is misbehaving, calling us is your best bet. We have tons of experience with controllers (PC & PLC), field buses, I/O devices, mechanical, electrical, and various motion approaches. We have decades of experience with industrial automation. Let's get your machine working properly again.
Manufacturers regularly update their products as new technology comes online. It is inevitable that your new machine will end up with hardware that you can no longer buy from the OEM or the manufacturer. Rest assured your interests are our interests. Nothing is off the table including the following:
Each option has it's pros and cons. We have no bias towards any possible options. You'll make the call on what you want.
Losing your code blows! Hardware can, and sometimes does fail. PLCs, PCs, vision systems, stepper drives, servo drives, VFDs, and safety controllers (to name a few hardware types) MUST be backed up. Meaning your hardware has "software" that is unique to each device in each machine. Regardless if the software is called logic, or parameters, or configuration, or settings, or whatever, you must have a backup. If you do not have a backup, after a hardware failure you can experience very, very long down times, which can be super painful. Let us back up all the devices in your machine to allow you to recover from any hardware failure quickly.
You have an idea of how the machine you have can work better. Great! Everything is possible; the only limiting factor is cost. Let's chat to figure out if realizing your idea is a venture that makes sense for your operation. Practically speaking we can modify the program in the controller, add sensors, and actuators, and make reasonable mechanical alterations.
We have a firm grasp on all manners of industrial automation, and have a knack for explaining how it all works. We are offering any custom tailored training your heart desires. Let's figure out your needs. Practically speaking this service can consist of your choice of the following:
Call us so we can train ourselves out of a job.
We are a collection of controls guys, however, we have ample mechanical experience. When we are on-site working on your machine, you will never hear us say "sorry bud, it's mechanical... call me when the mechanical is sorted out". If we are on the case, we will roll up our sleeves and get 'er done. We are not beyond getting our hands dirty. The mechanical service is part and parcel of troubleshooting. This service is not a stand alone service, meaning, we should not be first on your Rolodex when you need exclusively mechanical work done.
