Here at CWM Automation, our dedicated Control System design team can work with you to create a control system to suit your needs.
Our team are specialists and have a wealth of experience when it comes to control system design, including projects that have catered for a variety of wants and needs in a wide array of industries. Our trained electrical engineers can also fully integrate the control system on site and are experts in building the physical parts that are required to complete the project, such as electrical panels and desktop workstations.
PLC & HMI Software Integration
CWM Automation’s Electrical Engineers are Software Integration specialists. Our team is capable of working with software and components from a range of manufacturers such as :
- Allen Bradley (Rockwell Automation)
CWM Controls Engineers can use manufacturer operating platforms to create control software that meets your exact needs, before integrating it with your physical system. To date, we have integrated software with unique configurations for a large number of companies with great success. This service can be used independently, but is also teamed seamlessly with our machine building projects to give you complete in house production from the ground up.
SCADA Control Systems and Integration
SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) is a type of industrial control system (ICS) that can monitor and control industrial processes that exist in the physical world. SCADA systems are important control systems used in national infrastructures such as the national grid, water supplies and pipelines. They are more often integrated to control large scale processes that can include multiple sites, and large distances. These processes include industrial, infrastructure, and facility-based processes, such as:
- Industrial processes including manufacturing, production, power generation, fabrication, and refining.
- Infrastructure processes may be public or private, and include water treatment and distribution, wastewater collection and treatment, oil and gas pipelines, electrical power transmission and distribution, wind farms, civil defence siren systems, and large communication systems.
- Facility processes that occur both in public facilities and private ones (such as buildings, airports and ships) that can monitor and control heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems (HVAC), access, and energy consumption.
Because a SCADA system is usually a centralised control system designed to monitor and control an entire site, most actions are controlled automatically by RTUs or PLCs. This makes them a great way to lower operating costs as often only a small team or in some cases, an individual, needs to control the settings and conditions for the PLCs and RTUs to adhere to. CWM Automation’s Electrical Design Team will work with you to fully design and integrate specialist SCADA software, fully adapted to suit your companies needs and built with parts that will mean the system will last even in harsh conditions often presented by large scale industrial process plants. We can also offer an evaluation service to current SCADA Control Systems so that you can ensure your system is operating exactly as intended with no security risks or efficiency drops.
Control System Specifications Using Functional Design
Servo Driven Systems, Control and Design
CWM Automation retain a huge amount of experience when designing control systems for servo driven machinery. The increased precision that becomes available when a servo drive is utilised means that the wealth of settings and commands that are required when designing for servo systems can be difficult to integrate. Thankfully, our team have designed an array of control systems for servo mechanisms that cater for a range of different requirements, including:
- Servo Driven Product Depositors
- Servo Driven Indexing Conveyors and Rotary Indexing Tables
- Servo Driven Decorative Filling Systems, including;
i. Fill Lift Systems
ii. Lift & Spin Systems
iii. Tamp & Spin Systems
- Servo Driven Container Eject Systems
- Servo Controlled Pick & Place Systems
Coupled with the highly increased precision, a servo drive offers a significant decrease in part failure, due to having less moving parts, quicker setup adaptations thanks to computer controlled inputs; and much less manual intervention, and prolonged product life.
