Dalton Electrical specialises in machinery automation and can provide a turn-key solution to meet your requirements. Our design engineers are skilled at PLC program design across all vendors hardware/software. Their experience and knowledge across varied industries allows them to offer valuable insight into possible efficiency gains and process improvements.
The Automation team have worked on everything from stand alone machines, through to distributed control systems and process plant automation. Talk to them about visualisation software to give you a full view of your process or plant, including important historical or real-time information from your PC. We are experienced in setting up and working with VPN’s and other remote access systems. Dalton Electrical can easily support your system wherever it is in Auckland, across the Country, or the World.
Working together closely with clients, the team has undertaken recent projects to help them better understand the data from their machinery using an I4.0 approach, and how they can utilise this data to improve production or maintenance decision making.
Design and Consultancy
Dalton Electrical provide skilled electrical engineering services to scope and control your process or plant. Engineering concept, design and review are completed using tools such as EPLAN. Daltons also design and produce PCB layouts, 3D mechanical drawings and Functional Descriptions/GRAFCET drawings.
Dalton Electrical employs technicians whom are experts on PC, PLC, HMI, and Vision System programming. Supported brands include (but are not limited to):
- Allen Bradley (Rockwell)
- Aveva Intouch & System Platform
- Inductive Automation Ignition
- National Instruments LabVIEW
Data Capture & Reporting
As industrial plants become more automated and connected, the options for viewing and logging production and other plant data increase. Dalton Electrical can implement this historical logging for your plant, and work with operators and management to develop useful tools to view this data. Some examples are performance monitoring, power usage reports, production or shift reports, wastage reports. Dalton’s have been heavily involved in recent successful product tracking, and serialisation projects.
Dalton Electrical have setup, commissioned and continue to support many high speed packaging lines which incorporate machine vision for quality checks. This is an increasingly popular way of checking the quality and content of print on a product. These systems also work extremely well for detection of faulty, deformed, or missing parts
Dalton Electrical builds its control panels with the same high standards it applies to all work. All control wiring is ferruled and numbered, all components are labelled and full drawings are provided. These measures help maximise the lifespan of your new system and make fault-finding quicker and easier in the future.
Our service team can provide 24 hour, 365 days of the year back up services to all equipment, either via a remote connection, or by visiting site.
Specialist applications with VSD, Stepper, or Servo control. Dalton Electrical has experience across a wide range of Integrated, or stand alone Servo systems; Rockwell Kinetix & Powerflex 527, Omron 1S & G-series, Siemens Simotion, SEW MDX, Baldor Flex, Trio Motion, Parker, and others.
Re-Automation/ Reverse Engineering
Dalton Electrical technicians have a wide range of skills across many industries, so if you have a mechanically sound machine with aging or unsupported electrical components, it can be worth while to re-automate with new control gear. Machine reliability is greatly increased, and often speed or product throughput can be increased also. We also offer legacy hardware migration solutions to bring your control equipment up to date to help improve reliability and support-ability.
System Integrator Programs
Dalton Electrical can offer site audits, identifying all PLC’s and other equipment on site, supplying a full report and program backup dossier. We also offer ongoing fixed price contracts to carryout scheduled bimonthly/quarterly/annual backups and PLC battery checks.
