Manufacturing facilities that need to move goods around the warehouse are at a disadvantage if they need to move oversized items throughout the plant, and don’t have equipment in place to help them with this daunting task. Having material handling lifts and conveyors will help, but these processes must be fine-tuned to operate efficiently. OSCO Controls, which has made a name for itself in the electric control panel design sector, has been able to help manufacturing facilities conquer these problems with end-to-end services. Through on-site assessments, panel design, fabrication, implementation, and follow-up testing, the ability to connect equipment to simple controls operations is a game changer. In this article, we’ll explore the design and engineering perks that only OSCO can deliver to manufacturing companies looking for a turnkey custom control solutions.
Let’s say, for example, you are the owner of a manufacturing company in need of advanced controls to operate a material handling equipment. The equipment carries out complex movements of varying elevations in different areas of the work floor. When this company consults OSCO for advice, the control panel solution that’s designed is based on the outcome of on-site meetings with the customer and OSCO controls engineers. The result of this consultation is a custom built panel specific to the equipment and facility’s needs.
Panel design itself is a methodical process that accounts for assembly, wiring routes, power requirements, and overall appearance. Through SOLIDWORKS and computer-aided design (CAD) programs, it is easy to create a schematic that will eventually lead to precision fabrication. OSCO works to code requirements to ensure the final product meets all safety requirements.
Custom Control Panels and Smart Devices for industrial use is expected to grow as more companies look to automate complex tasks, limit manual operation and improve workflow. OSCO Controls is prepared to keep up with this growing demand.
