The key to a successful project is skilled manpower, proper tooling, and knowledge of the systems being worked on. The lack of any of these specifics will lessen the effectiveness of an installation. Whether the issues are immediate or in the future, a cost will be paid in reliability and productivity based on the quality of the job done. We are tradesmen skilled to the task at hand, from high ampacity 750 kcm industrial cable, to 24V industrial control wiring. We are thorough and knowledgeable, and we are here to do our best for our customers.
Electric motors can be costly to run, costly to repair, and costly when they fail during production. Proper motor application, sizing, overcurrent protection, and testing goes a long way towards ensuring good motor life and a productive bottom line. We can test the current condition of motors, verify overcurrent protection schemes, and provide service when things go wrong. We have relationships with electric motor shops and vendors to solve problems quickly and efficiently, and extensive experience in electric motor selection, wiring, troubleshooting and service.
In a manufacturing or production setting, small issues with machinery function can cause all kinds of production problems. Solid, effective troubleshooting techniques combined with strong electrical knowledge can make for a successful solution, whether the problem is relatively simple or very complex. In any situation, the problem is still the same and must be corrected as soon and reliably as possible. We have the tools, the skills, and the discipline to provide you with solutions that you need.
Technology advancements over the last 10 years have made programmable logic controllers (PLCs) very popular and effective in industry. Machine operation, integration, or plant control often relies on these devices to provide sequential operation and data acquisition. When a machine fails or misbehaves, anxiety rises due to the complexity of these devices, which are beyond the scope of many skilled mill wrights and electricians.
We can provide solutions in these instances due to exposure to multiple manufacturers equipment, trade knowledge, and strong troubleshooting skills. Rockwell Allen Bradley, Automation Direct, Modicon, GE Fanuc. Call us. We can help.
VFDs, VSDs, AFDs, AC Drives. EATON-Cutler Hammer, Rockwell-Allen Bradley, Fugi, Yaskawa, WEG, ABB, and more. Drives are popular, cost effective ways of managing production rates, machine speed, flow rates and a myriad of processes as well as controlling electrical usage costs. Proper application and maintenance of these devices can provide reliable service and production returns for any facility. We have a large scope of experience, and an advanced skill set in VFD selection, wiring, programming, troubleshooting, and service. We can be your drives solution.
Over the course of time, safety rules and regulations have changed dramatically. Many plants have machinery and equipment that produces well for them, but is of a vintage that did not require the safe guards and protection that the rules now require. Rather than give up these machines, we can provide alternative safety solutions and equipment to enable the machines to qualify as safe. Through automatic shutdown, safety circuits, barrier protection or other modifications to improve operator safety, we can bring your equipment up to standard.

When machinery fails unexpectedly, there is usually some cause that can be pointed to that could have been prevented or anticipated. Preventive maintenance is keeping an eye on conditions, and improving them over time to maximize equipment life span. Predictive maintenance is realizing that something is in need of replacement or will fail soon. Keeping equipment in good shape improves lifespan, and timely replacement ensures reduced downtime. Both save money. We have the knowledge and the ability to provide software managed electrical maintenance schedules tailored to any facility, whether the tasks are performed by us or by your plant electricians.
The National Electric Code and OSHA have set new electrical safety requirements for the protection of personnel in industrial environments. These requirements are the result of injuries to personnel in the form of burns received during electrical mishaps, or equipment failures. These burns can be simple flash burns, to serious fatal burns from large faults. In partnership with others, we can perform NFPA 70E Arc Flash Analysis; we can offer surveys, identification of risks, compliance options and installation, and wiring services for compliance. We can be part of your safe work place solution.
