NDC NW performs control retrofit to metal cutting machine

NDC were asked to assist with the re-design of a control system for a key metal cutting machine at a trailor manufacturer

The old Supos control had failed and the customer was unable to get a replacement. The customer opted for an upgrade option rather than repair.  In order to do this, NDC engineers designed a control system to replace the existing outdated process control. A new Mitsubishi PLC (PLC FX2N) was fitted and integrated into the electronic control system along with an advanced Horner HMI(HE500TIU110) and counter unit(FX2-1HC). The PLC was then programmed to the exact specification of the client who was delighted with the results. The successful fitting of this upgrade now enabled the customer to be able to achieve operational efficiencies that were not possible with the old system.
In addition to NDC's advanced repair capability, we also offer a range of options
for onsite repair and retrofit. In addition to state of the art equipment, we also specialise in older or obsolete equipment where customers' often have difficulty in sourcing reliable and competent support.
