PROJECT MANGEMENT SERVICES

GRID INTERACTIVE HOT WATER SYSTEMS

Delivered a cost analysis of technology development. Researched marketing channels for implementation of the proposed technology. Identified the most viable business model in existing market conditions.

CONVEYOR EFFICIENCY IMPROVEMENT

Preformed an analysis of a 4300 TPH conveyor system and identified optimisation opportunities to reduce operating costs by over 25% per year. It achieved by reduced maintenance frequency and lower energy consumption.

CONTINUOUS SHOT PEENERING

To eliminate downtine and manual labor, we developed a new control system for a refurbished continuous shot peener in a spring manufacturing production line. In combination with a robotic arm this has led to a significant increase in production output.

ELECTRICAL SERVICES

YASKAWA MOTOMAN ROBOT

We "retaught" a robotic arm from welding to handling operations and updated firmware for complete integration into the production line. Robot's electrical interface has been connected with corresponding PLCs to enable external control.

The firmware has been

KITAMURA 4-AXIS CNC MACHINE

A client's CNC machine has been out of service for long time. After troubleshooting, we delivered and commissioned a fully functional 4-axis Kitamura CNC machine. During commissioning we set new parameters for all servo drives to control tool changer, spindle and pallet changer.

CONVEYOR MULTI DRIVE SYSTEM (VSD)

Delivered, tested and commissioned new parameters set for a 2.1 MW VSD system. Parameters for the ACS800 ABB system had to be readjusted to meet new equipment requirements.

GENERAL PLC DEVELOPMENT

Programmed and commissioned a variety of PLC systems to meet customer's requirements, most commonly Siemens S7 and AB ControlLogix 5000.

Equipment:

    • Conveyor starter
    • Pump starter
    • Winch starter
    • Shot Peener starter

GENERAL TROUBLESHOOTING OF EQUIPMENT

Equipment failure investigations. Rectifying faults by using drawings, electrical schematics and PLC programs. Most of serviceable equipment has been returned to its working condition on the same day.

Equipment:

    • Winch starter
    • VSD multi-drive system (common DC bus)
    • 4-axis CNC machine
    • Robotic arm

VSD MONITORING

Designed a VSD monitoring system for a major conveyor at a client's production site. The system displays current alarms and actual values via web interface, including saarm history with a filtering option and a detailed logged trends display. Designed, developed and manufactured a custom VSD monitoring device for a client's major conveyor.
