    CABINET BUILD / SPECIAL TOOLING MANUFACTURING

    We recognize that when selecting physical infrastructure systems, there are many factors to consider. Some of these factors include environmental conditions and regulations, standard requirements, safety, ergonomics, network run limitations, test point arrangements, and equipment protection requirements. Therefore, the solution must be well equipped and secured.

    King Automation maintains a high standard of special tooling and cabinet building. We offer qualified staff and material to make sure all systems will run smoothly and reliably for the long run, reducing deployment times, system down times, and increasing the certainty of success by using tested designs with quality checks.

    SAFETY SERVICES

    We believe that in addition to functioning properly, all systems must be safe.
    Our commitment is to provide reliable, state-of-the-art industrial safety systems with sensorsand logic capable of detecting abnormal operating conditions and guarantee safety operation.

    Our team develops quick response safety solutions, as well as, a fast and easy recovery system to keep production working properly after a fail event.

  • ROBOTIC PROGRAMMING

    Our engineers are highly trained to perform automation and the commissioning of industrial robots as well as regular maintenance and services.

    ABB, FANUC, KUKA are some of the robots manufactures that we work on many different production processes such as welding, handling, cutting, etc.

    Through modeling and simulation, our professionals refine the system design and eliminate errors before developing hardware prototypes.

    SOFTWARE FOR PLCs

    Our trained personnel have a proven track record in programming leadership and technical knowledge to set up electronic control systems for mechanical equipment, including integrating electrical wiring requirements to pneumatic and hydraulic systems.

    Our programmers possess the critical thinking and problem-solving skills necessary to resolve operational issues related to automation.
    Therefore, they are highly trained to work with the major brands of programmable logic controllers such as Allen Bradley, Siemens and Mitsubishi.

    SUPERVISORY HMI/SCADA

    Thanks to the know-how gained in various industrial sectors, we are ready to assist our customers in understanding their problemsby providing integrated hardware/software solutions for the supervision of industrial plants, acquisition and processing of production data and quality control of production and storage processes.

    Working with supervisory systems software leaders like Wonderware, WinCC, ZenOn able us to respond with high level of precision and quality by demanding control solutions.

  • EFFICIENT STARTUP (PLC/ROBOT)

    In the startup phase of a project, the ability to troubleshoot is crucial and the team must have a comprehensive understanding of the whole system components. King Automation experts can provide the critical support needed during this key phase so that your maintenance program can truly begin to be deployed.

    For a successful launch, a startup follows these phases:

    • Massive amount of testing of devices and equipment to verify proper operation and functionality;
    • Identify and resolve operational and/or hardware issues and provide solutions for permanent fixes;
    • Proper preparation and optimization of equipment parameters to obtain the maximum performance of production. Also, avoids inadvertent wear of equipment.

    In fact, we understand that a startup phase must be handled with caution to provide a smooth transition, to the overall implementation schedule.

    COMMISSIONING OF SERVO DRIVE/SERVO MOTION

     
     
     
    Environment analysis, servo configuration and optimization are necessary for implementing the best approach for the specific application.

    DOCUMENTATION AND TRAINING SERVICES

    Providing the end user with clear and concise procedures is one of the most important steps after a project phase is completed. King Automation can develop operational and maintenance manuals for future reference. During the training phase, our specialists can discuss the line functionality concept and offer the best approach to recover it after a fail event.
