Controls Engineering

Expert can provide controls engineering solutions for bespoke and turnkey projects.

From manual assembly systems to fully automated production systems, our team of experts will have you covered every step of the way for an unbeatably comprehensive solution.

Electrical Design

Expert have vast experience in electrical system design using EPLAN P8 in 2D and 3D in accordance with the end user’s requirements and standards whilst fully compliant with EN60204-1 and EN13849-1.

We can create CE, EMC and LV compliant systems including reverse engineering of non-CE compliant systems from other international markets.

Expert-AMT Control Panel Manufacture

Control Panel Manufacture

Expert manufactures high-quality bespoke and series production cabinets for a variety of different industries.

We can accommodate the client’s specifications for preferred components, layouts, build techniques as well as custom colour finishes.

All panel systems are fully CE and EMC compliant and thoroughly tested prior to delivery and integration into any existing production systems.

Virtual Commissioning

Expert provide simulation through digital virtual commissioning environments in the form of a digital twin to prove the complete automation system and mechanical kinematics prior to the building of the machine.

Machines can be fully tested for:

  • Automatic operation with and without the product
  • Manual controls, including maintenance override and interventions
  • Safety testing, emergency stops, lightguards, access gates, etc.
  • HMI graphics and messaging
  • Robot functionality, external interfaces, collision zones, safety zones
  • Electrical hardware checks, circuit breakers, contactors, etc.

Benefits:

  • The end-user can realise the system operations and adjust the specifications prior to the installation
  • No on-site design and development
  • All programmable code, PLC, Robot, Safety, proven
  • Fast on-site commissioning
  • Quick achievement for production within designed cycle time

Furthermore, this can be expanded to the world of Virtual Reality, whereby machine operators can interact with the machine and then loado r unload products for process flow, sequence validation and machine training.
