Patti Engineering, Inc.,a leader in control systems integration, today announced it has completeda project for one of the worldâ€™s largest automotive manufacturingorganizations. Its team of renowned engineers conducted control system upgradesfor three obsolete control systems on UBE Injection Molding Machines (IMM). Atthe completion of the project, the customer gained the many advantages of thetechnological advances in automation while extending the usable life ofvaluable capital equipment.
Patti Engineeringis a MitsubishiAuthorized Systems Integrator and has extensive expertise using theMitsubishi family of automation and process equipment. The Patti Engineeringteam was brought in by the customer to update the original Mitsubishi A SeriesPLC control systems installed on the IMMs, which Mitsubishi no longersupported. To avoid costly production downtime, the machines controls needed tobe upgraded from the legacy A Series PLC to the new Mitsubishi Q Series PLCcontrol systems.
As part ofthis project Patti Engineering upgraded the Human Machine Interfaceâ€™s (HMIs) onthe IMM machines to current technology as well. Patti Engineeringrecreated the functionality of the current Indusoft HMI application, andupdated the operator interface PC to a 64 bit, Windows 7 system. Thisconversion ensures uninterrupted machine performance and reliability with theadded efficiencies and functionality the modern technology provides.
â€œPattiEngineeringâ€™s longstanding history in revamping industrial equipment to keep upwith the ever changing world of PLCs and other industrial controls has beenparamount to the reputation weâ€™ve earned as one of the best control systemintegration partners in the U.S.,â€ said Sam Hoff, executive vice president,Patti Engineering. â€œThis project has further established our position in themarket as a trusted partner, further proven by the fact that we are currentlyworking on upgrading three additional UBE IMMs for this customer at the presenttime.â€œ
