Many company's are converting their old machines to PLC control over buying a new one. The cost is considerably less and they can specify what controller they want to match what may be existing in their facility. With PLC's you can customize how your machine runs, eliminate personnel to drive cost down, or just help eliminate unnecessary down time. The PLC can be set up to walk your maintenance staff through problems on the machine with a touch screen interface. This can save money when you have people standing around waiting on the mechanic to fix a machine.

In order to squeeze every last minute of run time out of you equipment we offer a data tracking system. This system can be installed on a machine that currently has a PLC or one we install for you. Data Tracking can give you valuable information such as; how many times a machine has stopped, for what reason, who stopped it, total production information on the fly, a trackable P.M. program right on the touch screen, and predictive maintenance. This information can be viewed on the screen of the machine, your server, desktop computer, or from your home. This is a valuable tool if you own a business and would like to check up on your facility from home. We can also send text or e-mail to your smart phone with status updates at the intervals you require.

Training

If you feel like smashing your computer apart because you and your staff can't figure out how to optimize your current equipment. How about some training?

PLC's, touch screens, electrical controls, or just plain old mechanical training. We can do the training at your facility or at a remote site. If you are not sure where you would like to start, we can advise you. Or if you would like, we can administer a test to your trainees so you can determine where to start, or who to train.

All of our training is hands on.

  • Mechanical
  • Electrical Controls
  • PLC's
  • Touch Screens

We can train on what you feel your staff is weak on. Hydraulics, pneumatics, plumbing, or mechanical basics.

We have 2 test benches that we use for electrical training. The first is to teach the basics of control wiring. The second we use for electrical troubleshooting.

Our PLC training is from 1 - 5 days. Depending on how you would like to customize the course. We can teach from several different platforms of controllers. We prefer Siemens or Allen Bradley. We have had the best luck and excellent support from these suppliers.

Touch Screens take a little longer to teach. We recommend that the staff taking the class have already taken the PLC class.

All our classes can be customized to your needs.

Please call us for details.
