Industry Experience


Our mission is to develop easy-to-use automation tools which accelerate manufacturers to become production facilities of the future. The future of manufacturing is a fully integrated business made up of digital factories, where production machines, lines, software and ERP are seamlessly integrated into one digital ecosystem between all business units.

Our Journey

From Machine Automation to Production Empowerment

At ControlX Engineering, we began by designing automated systems for industrial machines, offering electrical design and PLC/SCADA solutions to companies of all sizes, including those in the mining industry. However, while working with the manufacturers and sometimes next to the business owners commissioning a production equipment we learnt the importance of achieving both an uninterrupted production and the quality of produced goods.

Recognizing Industry-Wide Challenges

We observed the challenges manufacturing businesses face, including staffing shortages and a constant demand for routine tasks. Unexpected issues further strain resources and make it difficult to maintain smooth operations. While simple solutions like downtime dashboards can help proactively address some issues, time constraints often prevent production personnel from exploring the full potential of automation. Additionally, navigating complex online automation solutions can be overwhelming, especially for smaller manufacturers.

Simplifying Automation for Every Manufacturer

ControlX is committed to making automation accessible and simplifies these complexities through a collaborative approach. We work directly with our clients to understand their operational needs and goals, in plain language, free from technical jargon.

Using our extensive automation expertise, we then propose customizable solutions tailored to each client's specific challenges and objectives. These solutions may involve:

Our goal is to empower every manufacturer, regardless of size or complexity, to unlock the full potential of automation through our accessible and effective solutions.


To develop a complete automation solution, a diverse range of tools are required. We have experience and knowledge in programming languages to develop custom MES systems, most common PLCs, SCADA software packages to achieve automation goals and provide outstanding automation solutions.

For design and implementation of custom Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) we use the following tools:

These tools help to develop reliable  solutions of integration ERP system with machines at factory floor.

In PLC programming we generally work with Siemens S7-1200 PLCs, however we also have strong experience with the following PLCs:

also worked with IDEC, Omron and Mitsubishi PLCs.

SCADA is a computer system for gathering and analysing real-time data. We have a broad knowledge base of the following SCADA and HMI systems:
