Our team of electrical and controls engineering experts have the experience to design, develop, and program the best possible control scheme for each of our automated machines to streamline processes and improve your industrial operations. Our electrical engineering experience crosses a broad spectrum of industries, applications, and functions, with proven methods to build sophisticated, reliable, and complete automated machine control systems, including hardware specifications, HMI integration, testing, and training.

Our machine control systems include all servo and motion positioning controls, parts feeders, conveyors, and sorting systems. For quality assurance, our automated assemblies can include measuring and vision inspection systems, all custom-tailored to meet your specific product requirements. Safety features are incorporated into every machine control system we build, and our designs make it easy for us to change, update, and re-program control systems as your business evolves. 

Our processes for development and programming of controls systems include:

  • Developing HMI, database, and reporting functions in accordance with the design documents to the functional requirements

  • Reviewing configuration and programming using defined practices in order to establish compliance with functional requirements

  • Developing control configuration or programming

  • Implementing security methodology to mitigate loss and risk

  • Designing a testing plan to execute appropriate testing relative to functional requirements

Machine Controls

Ethernet enabled controls platforms accessed by intuitive, touch screen HMI panels run the machinery Mitchell Machine designs and builds.

Whether new equipment or controls upgrades, our team of engineers and programmers supply the solutions for machine control.

Motion Control

Integrated motion control of servo, stepper and robotics allows today’s manufacturers to automate many tasks previously done manually. Machine designers coordinate closely with factory trained Controls Engineers to optimize machine efficiency and ensure safe operation.

Mitchell Machine offers a wide range of motion and machine controls and can integrate into any custom automation system. Our electrical engineers are highly knowledgeable about controls, motors, and drives, and they can offer the best solution for each custom system. As a value-added service to our existing clients, we will also consult on existing systems and recommend upgrades when applicable. Conceptual equipment and systems controls strategy consultations are also available.
