Factory Automation / Robotics
At Patti Engineering, we earned our reputation as a superior engineering resource through factory automation and robotics. In 1991, FANUC Robotics contracted Patti Engineering to work on its customized PLC programs and its proprietary PaintWORKS, Graphic User Interface (GUI) software. Since then, robotic systems and factory automation control systems have continued to play a large role in our continued success.
Manufacturing Execution Systems
Patti Engineering is an expert in implementing manufacturing execution systems (MES) to monitor the productivity and efficiency of your overall system. Managing the production and material flow on the shop floor requires an understanding of the PLCs on the production floor as well as the servers in the front office. Patti Engineering has the necessary automation controller experience that is required to complement their data collection expertise for helping you with every aspect of your MES implementation. By utilizing the latest technologies of open connectivity (OPC) communications and visualization products, we have partnered with many clients to streamline their manufacturing process by not only collecting the production data, but by displaying and reporting it in a way that takes their efficiency to a whole new level.
Patti Engineering can handle the most complex and difficult challenges. We have extensive knowledge and experience implementing a wide range of industrial controls across various industries. We have gained our client’s trust by solving problems that other companies refuse to even touch.
Garment and Parcel Sortation
Patti Engineering has revolutionized controls in sortation and distribution. By using encoder-based sorting and combining the logic controller and information database on the same machine, Patti Engineering provides the most accurate sortation processes with significantly less hardware than traditional control solutions saving the customer money and improving sorting and distribution accuracy.
Continuous Process Control Systems
Patti Engineering understands how continuous process controls systems differ from discrete machine control. We are able to take a set of P&ID drawings and an operations narrative and turn that into a functioning control system. Our Engineers have the necessary expertise to understand the differences between a RTD and a thermocouple and how to cascade and tune a PID loop.
Professional Engineering Services
Patti Engineering can use its extensive experience in controls systems integration to be a professional and expert resource for your business.
Whether it’s providing support staff to aid in project management or engineering, creating functional specifications for control systems design, authoring user and maintenance system documentation, or providing expert witness analysis and testimony, Patti Engineering has the right resources and experience to meet your professional services needs.
