What can we do for you?
Here at Automation With Control (AWC), our aim is to become recognised as an industry bench mark by continuously striving to maintain and improve the management and quality of our engineering services and solutions.
Our main workshop facility is located in the heart of the National Forest with close links to major highway routes including the M42/M1, A38 and A444.
For many years now we have built a highly recommended reputation mainly in the Food and Beverage manufacture and packaging industry, providing solutions to many Electrical and Automation processes. Other industries we have provided solutions for include:
- Car Manufacturing plants
- Tooling manufacturers for jigs and fixtures
- Conveyor System manufacturers
- Construction Equipment manufacturers
You can choose from our services which include:
Control panel design, manufacture and installation
We design, manufacture and install control panel systems for various machines, from Start/stop control and motor control, to fluid and air control systems. All of our control panels are built using only the top quality control gear from the leading supplier brands. The size of our control panels can vary from compact enclosures for small machines, jigs or junction boxes, all the way up to stand-alone control panels for motor control and larger scale switchgear such as inverters, contactors or Star/Delta starters.
PLC Software, installation and modification
Mainly specialising in Siemens, Allen Bradley and Mitsubishi, we design, install, test and modify PLC software and programs for many types of industrial processes. Our software engineers are well experience in the manufacturing industry, programming all kinds of production control systems.
Control System Commissioning
Powering up all machines/systems on a plant line and going through the process that is to be completed to make sure the system runs as it should before it is handed over to the customer. This would involve completed I/O checks on sensors, valves, motors, lamps, buttons and various other devices. It also includes setting up and checking safety controlled devices such as safety relays, guard switches or light curtains.
Machine Installation and modification
All aspects of installation (positioning, fixing, wiring, testing) or modifying existing systems at a customer’s request for improvements or additional field processes and cost efficiency etc.
Cable containment installations
We install and modify all aspects of cable management and containment. These include cable trunking, cable tray, cable basket, metal, plastic and PVC flexible conduits and cable ladders.
Testing and inspection
Using only certified and calibrated equipment, we carry out all aspects of testing and inspection on machine systems and equipment, panel boards and switch rooms, control panels and switch gear, lighting and general electrical installations and PAT testing.
Lighting design and installation
More recently we have been involved in a number of lighting systems using different types of industrial multi-purpose fittings. This could either be replacing like-for-like or researching into new designs and cost efficient methods both for indoor and outdoor lighting. This could be from something as simple as locker room lighting, all the way up to large scale warehouse lighting where the use of MEWP would be required. All our engineers are qualified in using MEWPs Class 3A (Mobile Vertical) and Class 3B (Mobile Boom).
High and Low Voltage cable installations (including recognised support/containment systems)
Installation of HV and LV cables from switch rooms to local distribution boards. Whether it be installing onto an existing cable system or installing new ladder/cable trunkings.
