Removed an old extruder control panel for a customer. 1979 Thyrsitor DC Drive from Sweden
Well a little out of the norm, but this week saw us installing and commissioning an EVPT Trainer with an Aerosim engineer for one of the major airlines.
Finished on the friday in time to have a little play with the Airbus taking off and doing loops !
Had the job of removing an old Siemens S5 control panel for a plastics extruder and replacing with a new modern Allen Bradley PLC and Panelview Plus HMI Screen. New modern SSD DC 690+ drives on Devicenet and Siemens Solid State Switches for the heaters. New panel was tight as the customer wanted extras so we did a back to back job between the steel work !
Had a weeks work in Denmark removing a Robot Spray System with all associated controls. Robot was a Kuboto Steel (taken over by Mitsubishi), area was a hazardous one with EXd motors and Intrinsic safety circuits. Robot cell had Sick Safety Lasers for entry exit on the conveyor system. Unit was shipped back to the UK and installed here with some new modifications.
