Case Studies

We won the tender for the industrial automation and control of a green field site for Solid Energy working with a potentially explosive product: sawdust.
After our factory automation systems work for Ardagh in Hastings, we were approached for a turnkey electrical and control system design and installation in NSW.
For Craggy Range, we upgraded and maintained an extensive automation and control system, across a variety or processes, including two site wide SCADA systems.
The Pernod Ricard winery in Marlborough consisted of many independent machines with no common controls or oversight of the whole wine making process. We designed and deployed a site wide SCADA system solving these issues.
At the heart of Kraft Heinz’s central processing facility is a hydrostatic cooker capable of processing and cooking 60,000 cans of food at any one time in a continuous process. It is an integral part of their business and a potential breakdown presented a significant financial risk.
Hawk's new greenfield site required us to design a factory automation solution for complex industrial process with different machines, liquids, chemicals and flow rates.
We have a long working relationship providing winery automation services for Indevin Partners, keeping them at the forefront of the winemaking industry.
Having a proven history and reputation for automation design at other fertiliser service centres, Ballance Agri-Nutrients asked us to develop a design for a green field site.
Tumu Timbers had an interesting problem that needed a robotics engineering solution. They simply couldn’t find people for the specialised task of manufacturing pallets.
Kraft Heinz needed a robotics and automation solution that could keep up with the speed cans come out of the hydrostatic cooker, getting cans onto pallets, ready for labelling.
