Industrial Automation And SYSTEM INTEGRATION

We Deliver Advanced Automation Systems

We design, develop and supply automation solutions for manufacturing and production sites. Our difference is that we use technologies used by Amazon Warehouses and Tesla manufacturing facilities to achieve cost effective solutions.

Our services fall into three categories:

  • Integrate Operations with factory floor to increase efficiencies (MES)

  • Design and build electrical panels to automate machineries

  • Program PLC and SCADA to achieve automation on production floor

We Worked With

VARIETY OF INDUSTRIES

We have a strong Controls Engineering and System Integration experience in mining and manufacturing. We cover a wide range of skills from setting up a sensor to integrating a machine into a cloud infrastructure.

A few examples of project types below:

  • Process automation in hazardous areas

  • Underground belt conveyors and winches

  • Integration of machineries in manufacturing

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

Peter Conroy

Outbye Electrical Coordinator

"I have utilised ControlX Engineering on numerous occasions at Ulan Underground Coal Mine. The expert knowledge in many fields of Engineering has been an asset to our business in maintaining profitability. Introducing the VSD web monitoring system onto our network that enable us to effectively control and optimise all of our VSD drives on site. I have contacted ControlX on many occasions for breakdown assistance and through utilising their experience we have limited downtime to a minimum on our Conveyor System."

Simon H Crane

Managing Director

"The grasp of the engineering principles, design criteria and legislative requirements of automated manufacturing in industry is of the highest calibre.

Alex (from ControlX Engineering) works hard to keep abreast of all new manufacturing technologies that may impact with our production needs. To date, he has worked on projects as widely diversified. ControlX Engineering can take projects from concept to full production."

How we work

Typically, our automation solution delivery process is based on the following seven steps:

1. Discuss the requirements

To start, we'll gain an in-depth understanding of your requirements. We'll work together with you - listening, asking questions, observing existing processes, and suggesting ideas - to understand your requirements and establish a feature set for the solution.

2. Project brief (proposal)

We will then create a project proposal document. It will describe how we will work together - either in a flexible or strictly planned approach - and outline the feature set, and show the estimated cost and time to develop the solution.

3. Engineering and design

After you let us know you want to proceed we will begin with the engineering of the solution. This is a collaborative process, and it may involve sending preliminary schematics, estimated Bill Of Materials, and/or software architecture, so that you can be sure what we deliver is what you wanted.

4. Development

The core development will either be based upon milestones (in Waterfall methodology), or sprints (in Agile methodology). This is where the design is turned into the deliverables. PLC programs, SCADA systems, software development, and schematics are produced during this stage. Communication with the client on this stage is essential to continue monitoring the development as per agreed specification.

5. Testing

All software (including PLC and SCADA) development undergo mandatory testing stage. The testing includes the hardware or testing environment as close as possible to the real (production) condition. In some cases we will perform manual testing and process simulation to ensure the program performs as expected. Test reports are provided on the completion.

6. Commissioning

If this step is a part of the agreement we will make sure that the developed automation solution is integrated into the current production process smoothly. We will travel on site and assist with making the equipment working as initially scoped.

7. Support

We provide comprehensive support options for the services we provided, which includes priority troubleshooting and assistance with abnormal functionality. But even if you would prefer not to opt-in for ongoing support, all our PLC programs and HMI/SCADA screens come with a 12-month warranty to fix errors.
