Factory automation systems, properly implemented, can help you increase production throughput, improve product quality, and reduce labor and energy costs.
But have you ever felt the pain of a new project that actually decreased productivity? Unfortunately, we meet many companies that have experienced a bad situation because they chose the wrong automation supplier.
At IPACT, we perform detailed needs analysis and complete the functional design before we start programming PACs, HMIs, and other automation elements. Then we rigorously simulate both components and system performance in our lab, so your startup will be smooth and your project will deliver as you expect. IPACT has extensive experience implementing automation systems at leading metals manufacturers such as ArcelorMittal and Novelis.
