Printing

Following on from our understanding of complex winders, tension controls and web transport systems we have applied our knowledge of high performance web transport systems to control printing presses. Past upgrades include machines from Rotomec, Cerutti, Schiavi, Polytype, Atlas, Delta. More

Plastics & Rubber

There are a number of critical issues that accompany production of polymers and plastics, be this system stability, temperature, speed or tension. The time it takes to get a stable set of conditions can make a significant difference to a business. At Optima we design our control systems to provide the fastest changeover and the most stable of operating conditions. Our portfolio of contracts has seen us upgrade machines from Bruckner, Davies Standard, Riefenhauser, Egan, Windmoller & Holscher amongst others.More

 

Aggregates

We have engineered energy saving projects to the Aggregates industry. Applying power saving inverter drives to the main fan, introducing automatic speed regulation with a differential pressure control loop and automatic filter cleaning warning mechanisms. Payback on these projects is typically less than 18 months and clients can often secure Carbon Trust funding for the projects.More

Building Components

Our portfolio of industrial projects includes systems engineered for the building supplies industry. Amongst which are systems for major industry players producing steel forming lines, insulation laminating lines and sub-terrainian reinforcing structures from extruded, formed and stenter treated polymers.More

 

Chemical & Pharmaceutical

This sector presents some of the more challenging environments for electrical systems. Highly explosive areas need to be accounted for in many of the system designs for chemical applications, Atex compliant systems are an inherent part of the solutions we provide to this sector.More

Re-commencement of commissioning on major projects

Critical process industry can’t stop, so Optima have been back commissioning on-site for some time now to support our customers.

For this major project, we have written the PLC and SCADA platform to control the whole process from start to finish. The application is written entirely in TIA Portal with a total of three WinCC SCADA platforms. We have used the latest cloud-based remote access technology so that most of the plant can now be commissioned remotely. Remote access using a combination of local Wi-Fi and High-Gain 4G antennas gives us a reliable and secure access to the PLC and SCADA system when it is required.

This project is just one of many that Optima play a key role in. Whether your application is large or small, we have a capable engineering team that are able to provide you with as much engineering resource as you require.
