Do you suffer from machinery that is continually breaking down due to problems with its control system?

Many older machines are well designed and solidly constructed. Our experience has shown that in many cases the primary cause of problems with these machines lies with the control system rather than the mechanics. This situation is compounded by the equipment not often complying with current safety legislation and with poor or nonexistent spares availability.

In these instances often the best solution is to design a new control system. As well as improved uptime there are additional benefits such as a greatly enhanced operator interface, smaller control cabinet footprint, and in some instances improvements in cycle time can be realised.

Furthermore, in designing a new control system the machine’s functionality can be tailored to your exact requirements.

We have considerable experience in the modernisation and upgrading of pharmaceutical equipment, such as tablet presses and fluid bed dryers.
