Controls Engineering and Software

Proper controls engineering and warehouse software has become the lifeblood of any successful distribution and manufacturing operation.  We represent the top software programs in the industry and our highly trained controls engineers play a crucial role in ensuring success of your system.

Controls Engineering:

The most important aspect of any conveyor installation is the controls engineering and commissioning of the system.  Our experienced group of highly proficient controls engineers and PLC programmers allow us to provide solutions with a responsive design, quality coding, all with easy maintenance.  We are up to date with all the newest technology from the top controls hardware manufacturers, allowing us to provide the most robust equipment on the market.  Proper controls engineering can lead to an increase in equipment utilization, a reduction of errors, lower operating costs, increased productivity, system flexibility, and more.

Commissioning of the system is the final steps in all of our automation projects and our engineers program the system to meet all the design requirements exactly, giving our customers a highly functional system.  Depending on the project size and complexity, we provide:

  • Panel layout with equipment and hardware list
  • Electrical schematics
  • Inputs and outputs (I/O) schematics
  • Field wiring drawings
  • Conveyor and other material handling equipment drawings
  • PLC programming and conveyor routing
  • Ongoing system support
  • And more

Human Machine Interface (HMI)

HMI is a graphic based interface in our engineered conveyor controls system which uses a screen with a model of your system which provide diagnostics on the system.  This monitors the PLC controls, barcode scanners, motor/reducers, and any other associated equipment in the system.  The HMI allows operators to quickly identify errors and the status of each component of the entire system.  This can be a valuable addition to any system by helping minimize downtime of equipment, thus increasing the return on investment.
