This month, we’d like to shine a spotlight on our dedicated Controls & Electrical department, who boast a wealth of knowledge in building and integrating control systems. Catering for a variety of needs in a wide array of industries, CWM’s team of Controls Engineers have developed vast amounts of experience in system control design.
PLC & HMI Software Integration
CWM’s engineers are software integration specialists, capable of working with software and components from various different manufacturers, including Allen Bradley (Rockwell Automation), Mitsubishi, Omron, Telemechanique, GE and Siemens.
We can utilise manufacturer operating platforms to create software that meets exact customer requirements, before integrating it with the physical system. Customers can purchase our software integration services independently, or alongside machine build projects to give a complete in-house production from the ground up.
Servo Drive Systems
CWM are experts in creating control systems for servo driven machinery. Our team can design servo mechanism systems that cater for many different requirements, including product depositors, indexing conveyors and rotary indexing tables, decorative filling systems, container eject systems and controlled pick and place systems.
Servo drive systems offer a number of benefits, with the main one being increased levels of precision. This level of precision requires significantly more settings and demands, which can be difficult to integrate. However, CWM’s keen eye for detail and extensive experience handling these systems means that our team are more than capable of designing them.
SCADA Control Systems & Integration
SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) is a type of industrial control system that can monitor and control industrial processes in the physical world. These systems are most often associated with large scale processes:
- Industrial Processes – manufacturing, production, power generation, fabrication and refining.
- Infrastructure – water treatment and distribution, wastewater collection and treatment, oil and gas pipelines, electrical power transmission, wind farms, civil defence siren systems and large communication systems.
- Facility processes that occur in both public and private facilities that can monitor and control heating systems, ventilation and air conditioning systems and energy consumption.
SCADA systems can be designed to monitor and control a whole site, where most actions are controlled automatically by RCU’s or PLC’s. CWM’s experts are capable of working with customers to develop and integrate specialist SCADA software, fully adapted to meet their company needs. Built with components that will protect against harsh conditions often presented by large scale industry process plants, customers can be assured that CWM’s systems are built to the highest standards.
As well as building SCADA systems, our engineers can evaluate existing systems to ensure that they are operating efficiently and pose no security risks.
