This project included upgrading a very old Allen Bradley SLC controller to a newer MicroLogix PLC. This controller was on an automatic pallet stretch wrapping machine, part of a robotic palletizer line. We replaced the old PLC with a new one, also replaced much of the original panel wiring. Old PLC: New PLC:
We have completed a control system for an infeed sorting device that feeds a large format inkjet printer. This system will sense incoming boards into the printer, and will raise and lower a guidance system to keep the boards tracking straight into the printer. We used an M221 PLC from Schneider Electric, and safety light […]
This is a documentation of an automated control system we designed, built, and installed for an automated saw machine. The machine was built by a local tool and die shop, and was installed for production at a wood window and door factory. We were commissioned to build the control system by the tool and die […]
We are pleased to have provided troubleshooting and upgrade assistance to a local mfg. of roll formed sheet metal products. We received a call that their main roll forming machine was down, and needed attention immediately. We arrived at the plant and soon noticed that the PLC in the control cabinet was not communicating with […]
In the automation world, we have been getting more involved in the industrial networking side of things, specifically connecting PLC controlled machines to the office network. Traditionally industrial networking has been very expensive and cumbersome in order to get data from the office environment to the production machines on the plant floor. This data is […]
We had the opportunity to upgrade a timer module for an industrial drying process. The machine in question is fairly old, and it had “old-school” mechanical “spring motor driven” timers which were no longer readily available. We specified a new electronic timer that has a bright display for ease of use, and is easy to operate. […]

We have completed a small system upgrade for a local window and door mfg. The machine in question is an older automatic miter saw. It had an early model AllenBradley PLC model SLC 150 for the controller. The wiring in the control panel was in typical shape for an older machine, it was all pulled […]
