Optimation's engineers have extensive expertise in the engineering and design of
motion control, coordinated drives and VFD's. The staff is experienced in the design of variable speed drives, stepper and servomotors, and other motor control applications. Our mechanical, process, electrical, instrumentation, controls and
software engineers have demonstrated their experience in completing successful projects
on time and on budget for a broad list of clients. Our experience includes extensive work with industrial control, integrated drive systems, and start up of new facilities.
Example Motion Control, Drives and VFD projects:
- Designed and implemented a system for batch material handling, blending, and transfer of powdered materials. The system comprised twelve major pieces of equipment and numerous ancillary components. Project tasks included completion of P&ID drawings, layout of all required equipment, design of electrical power distribution, specification of motor drives for variable speed electrical motors, and design and programming of a DELTA V process control system to operate and control all equipment in the system. Disciplines applied were Process, Mechanical, Structural, Electrical, Instrumentation, and Software Engineering; and Mechanical, Electrical, and Instrument Design.
- Designed and implemented an entire extrusion line for a sausage casing factory, which comprised twenty chemical treating tanks, explosion-proof and corrosion-resistant exhaust systems, extruders, dryers, and over one hundred coordinated web drives. Project tasks included design of the web handling system; design of chemical equipment for acid processing of casing materials; and design of a PC-based control system with operator interface screens. Disciplines applied were Mechanical Design; and Chemical, Electrical, Instrumentation and Software Engineering.
- Reconfigure a large DC bus and drive system for a paper plant in Syracuse NY. This plant required new drives to meet higher operating speeds for a paper line upgrade.
