Our services

Consulting

We start our relationship with an in-depth consultation in which we analyse your requirements and identify areas where we see room for improvement. Next, we design and configure the solutions to meet your requirements while maximising their value to you.

Planning and Construction

We plan and design all products in-house. Thanks to the know-how of our engineers, you can be sure right from the planning phase that your requirements will be implemented the exact in the way you want it.

Manufacturing

For your machines we offer the production of all required non-standard components including surface protection according to your specifications.

Modernisation

Decided to modernise or overhaul your drive systems? Count on our help for every project phase – from preliminary consulting to developing the project documentation to programming and execution.

We modernise old automation systems such as old Simatic S5 central systems by replacing them with new systems such as Simatic S7 with distributed modules. Equipment upgrades are in good hands with us, too.

Programming

Programming by a specialist

We program all the systems ourselves so we can accurately and precisely fulfil your special requests and preferences. Our software engineers are intimately familiar with all standard programming systems and can also develop custom software with standardised interfaces.

We can program PLCs for all established manufacturers and will manage your plant automation systems over the entire plant lifecycle. We employ standards such as ABB, Allen Bradley, Beckhoff, Phoenix Contact, Siemens, Rockwell and Wonderware as well as all standard bus systems and components such as PROFINET, PROFIBUS, INTERBUS, AS-Interface, Industrial Ethernet, DeviceNet, ControlNet, Ethernet/IP and serial interfaces.

Our programmers are highly motivated and well qualified. As real specialists, we have extensive experience in all application areas of programming in the automation sector. We are always anxious to develop the best and above all practice-oriented solutions for you and have the highest possible degree of quality awareness.

Functional testing is carried out by technicians who can provide the right specialist knowledge backed up by years of experience. Specially trained staff are on hand to undertake the measurements required for initial and repeat testing as laid down in DGUV V3 as well as to collect measurement data for Profibus, Profinet, Ethernet and ASI–Bus. Our thermography services can identify thermal overload and undesirable heat build-up while the system is running, thereby helping to minimise damage and downtime. We use the latest measurement technology and our equipment is regularly checked and calibrated by independent testing laboratories.

Safety
Safety is always at the forefront of everything we do. We were awarded the DEKRA seal of approval for occupational safety in 2012 and have successfully completed the official certification process every year since. Our staff also attend work-safety seminars and workshops on a regular basis.

Quality
Ongoing professional development combined with an effective in-house quality assurance process ensures that we can meet the most stringent quality requirements. Client-based experience built-up during project time and then refined as part of a continuous improvement process makes for optimised project execution and creates invaluable input for collaborative projects of the future.

Clients at home and overseas can commission on-site services such as repeat testing to DGUV V3, site supervision and start-up support. And of course we hold the right labour leasing permit for temporary staff assignments.

Commissioning

Once installed, the systems are commissioned by our specialists and project engineers. They monitor the start-up process, test availability and optimise processes to get the solution quickly integrated into your production process. Our services also include shift supervision by our engineers and the training of operators and maintenance personnel.

Standardisation

We’ll sit down with you and standardise your switchgear and controllers as much as possible to avoid needless costs. For example, we can develop a configuration framework that you can use to build different options for specific control tasks.
