Motion Project Industrial Control – from design to integration

 

Whether a process retrofit or a new work project, our structured “project” organisation is designed around a  number of phases that are each subject to a validation milestone:

 

  • Project launch and organisational phase
  • Functional specifications phase
  • Design and programming phase
  • Platform test phase
  • On-site integration phase
  • Commissioning phase

 

At the start of the project, we first define the organisation that is both necessary and sufficient to meet the requirements of the project. After this, a project manager is appointed to act as your preferred contact dealing with both technical and a commercial aspects. He/she shall ensure that the project is carried out in accordance with the technical, time, quality and budgetary objectives. He/she will manage the progress of the project, the management of modifications if necessary and will remain at your disposal for any problems during the project.

 

 

What support does DV GROUP offer?

 

 Our Motion Drive unit will support you throughout the project:

 

  • Audit, expertise and advice on architectures and the different solutions
  • Help with drawing up specifications
  • Functional and Drive design analysis
  • Standard programming according to DV GROUP or client programming standard
  • Integration of motor and drive platforms
  • Commissioning of equipment and production support
  • Documentation and training
  • Optimisation and production changes

Some examples of our machine retrofitting work:

 

Today, many customers in the automotive, steel, agri-food, pharmaceutical, energy and infrastructure sectors entrust their retrofits to us or their new construction projects, why not you?

Retrofit – replacing your Motion drive

Retrofitting allows you to upgrade your motor drive/variable speed drive and its control system if it no longer meets your production requirements or if its components have become obsolete.

Retrofitting may also apply to the automation and supervision associated with the drive line.

 

The Motion retrofit part allows you to improve your means of production:

 

  • Enhanced reliability, which ensures increased availability of the system
  • Excellent flexibility due to the numerous programming possibilities and numerous technical interfaces
  • Simple and flexible resolution of a very wide range of Motion problems
  • Merger and programming of motion control, automation and technological functions under a single engineering platform
  • Reduced and optimised engineering costs
  • Easy, homogeneous programming and diagnosis for the whole machine
  • Easier system maintenance
  • Rapid system reaction and improved machine performance
  • Obtain new sources of specialist equipment maintenance support
  • Add additional features e.g. enhanced security
  • Compliance – in accordance with the recommendations made by audit bodies, but also due to our knowledge in the field, in particular EMC

 

 

Why discuss retrofitting with DV GROUP?

We are actively working to continuously increase our knowledge and experience in respect of retrofitting.

We possess skills and expertise in a wide range of areas and are proficient in the areas of drives, command-control and automation across the entire production line.

 

What support does DV GROUP offer?
