Control Panels

Control Panels

At Simonswood Automation we can create bespoke control panels and enclosures to house electrics, motors, drive system and hardware. We use AutoCAD Electrical to design the panels and once the panel has been formed it is subjected to thorough quality checks and inspection. We can create standard wall and floor mounted enclosures as well as custom panels in stainless and mild steel.

And if you need specialist hazardous area enclosures we can deliver these too. All control panels meet British and European quality standards. Our previous clients have included the likes of London Underground, JJB and Unilever.

HMI Systems

HMI Systems

Our human machine interaction (HMI) systems are designed to provide users with a front end interface that keeps you updated with clear information on production processes. At Simonswood Automation we use HMI systems from major manufacturers such as Allen Bradley, Siemens and Mitsubishi and Preface.

From Allen Bradley we use the PanelView and InView Manage Display systems, from Siemens the WinCC Flexible interface and from Mitsubishi the E Designer. With this technology our software engineers can create HMI systems for complex or simple production equipment and to your time and budget limitations.

OEE and Production Monitoring

OEE and Production Monitoring

Overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) software allows you to follow and monitor the performance and efficiency of your production processes. Over time it means you can pinpoint and identify areas of inefficiency and waste by comparing the OEE during different shifts, machines and production runs.

The OEE software will deliver a single figure that represents the overall performance of your system. The quality of the product delivered, the production rate and time are all factored into this OEE figure. At Simonswood Automation we can create bespoke OEE software for production monitoring for installation onto your systems.

Simonswood Automation can provide you with accurate and reliable automated measurement equipment to ensure you keep productivity high and eliminate inefficient processes.
