You have an idea, the beginnings of a plan, certainly a desire to make it happen; but you aren't sure how to go about it. That's where Drives and Automation fit in, our Engineers can meet with you to help turn your idea into a reality.
Whether it is a production line, a bridge, a furnace, a labelling machine, a bottling plant or something else entirely, the team at Drives and Automation have the skills and experience to work with you to look at the practicalities of turning your idea into something more.
Alternatively we are equally happy to work to your specifications and with your staff or subcontractors to fill in the gaps in your skill set and knowledge. The choice is down to you, and Drives and Automation can guide you every step of the way.
Your ideas are turned into a functional drawing, turning your original idea into a concept that can be viewed and understood. At this point your initial concept has reached the stage of having its own systems solution, utilising our sound understanding of the engineering principles involved and, from discussions with your technical staff, on an understanding of mechanical functionality required and the interface with any existing or 3rd party supplied equipment.
Getting it right at this stage is vitally important and we will develop your control systems using our detailed knowledge of drive systems and control including: speed control, speed following, torque control, load sharing, position following and the use of double differential controllers, to ensure that reality meets expectation.
Panels supplied by us are of course subject to a full functional test and inspection by our own engineers and drive modules are set up with parameters as far as possible. Panels are dispatched with test and inspection certificates fully detailing the test and inspection criteria.
Downtime is expensive and so it's vital that the installation of your new system goes smoothly. Our engineers can project manage the whole installation or we can assist your own installation team. Commission your new system can then be carried out by our engineers to fine tuning your system and address any issues as soon as they appear.
