End customer - Webasto roof systems

Spirax Sarco
Davyhulme, Manchester
Boilerhouse supervisory system

This system was developed using Siemens S7-300 and its purpose was to remotely control and coordinate 3 large boilers in the Davyhulme Water treatment works. The PLC was required to communicate with the Dunphy boilers and various other devices in the field Via Modbus RTU. There was also a connection to a DCS system via Profibus

Spirax Sarco
Pumping station WinCC V6.2 upgrade

This system was developed using Siemens S7-300 and its purpose was to remotely control and coordinate 3 large boilers in the Davyhulme Water treatment works. The PLC was required to communicate a DCS system and with the Dunphy boilers and various other devices in the field Via Modbus RTU.

Jaguar Landrover
Schuller Tri-axis press upgrade

The Tri-axes press is controlled by five Siemens S5 PLCs. We completed the upgrade of the PLC from S5 to S7 400. This included the upgrade of both the PLC and the visualisation. This process was completed without the need for long periods of down time. The system we implemented allowed us to commission the S7 system around production requirements.

WinCC SCADA upgrade

This upgrade of an existing WinCC system from 4.1 to 7.0 included an extensive amount of C script and advanced WinCC functions. We also replaced an FI 45 PC running ProTool and HMI advanced with WinCC Flexible. The upgrade was required due to the obsolescence of the FI 45 PC.

Spirax Sarco
Albion Automotive
Induction Heating machine HMI Upgrade

This project involved the upgrade of the existing Siemens S5 135U system, which included IP242 and IP246 cards with a com graph based visualization system. It was upgraded to a Siemens S7 317T technology PLC with a WinCC Flexible visualization system based on an MP 377 HMI.

Spirax Sarco
Futaba, Derby
Weld cell part tracking PI System

A Process Information system was generated in order to track parts through a robot welding cell to allow the cell to produce multiple part types in a single batch. This application was then applied to a further eight similar cells. 2D matrix scanners were used to enter data from a job sheet to a shift register on a Proface HMI/PLC. The Proface interfaced to the existing Mitsubishi PLCs to control the cells.

Blanking Press 4 stacker PLC upgrade
 

The element of this press was controlled by two Siemens S5 115U PLCs. These PLCs have been replaced by a single Siemens S7 and a Simotion system. A WinCC Flexible visualization system was also added.

Toyota, Derby
End of line test 

The Avensis assembly line at Toyota used an S5 system for controlling the Wheel Alignment process. We upgraded this system to a PC based S7 PLC and the wheel alignment calculations (previously performed by discrete electronics) were included within the PLC software. Once completed we performed the same upgrade on the Headlamp Aim and Brake Test machines.
