Delivery time from specification approval to prototype can be as
short as six weeks.
Up-front charges, if any,
relate to non-recurring tooling.
WRD controls cost 33%
to 50% less
than PLC’s or “off-the-shelf” solutions just in hardware alone.
Your ability to recoup low (if any) non-recurring expenses
is measured in months instead of years.
Using the full flexibility of ProductMaker,
WRD will design and manufacture a control tailored specifically
to your application with enhanced performance and features.
One custom unit is installed in a fraction of the time it takes
to mount, wire, and program multiple off-the-shelf conglomerations.
WRD 100% functionally tests all controls before they leave our factory,
thereby virtually eliminating line rejects.
WRD controls “plug’ n play” - machine downtime is minimal.
One microprocessor-based control can be configured to work in several
different models or families of equipment allowing you to reduce
your inventory levels and maintenance costs.
Responding to ever-changing market demands with refinements and
enhancements is a positive experience.
WRD controls utilize in-circuit or flash programmable components.
WRD provides lasting and continuing service to our customers.
New Thinking of Two Concerns
toward buying, installing, and having to set-up an off-the-shelf
PLC and concerned about not being able to “do your own programming”
on a custom control?
WRD controls come “fully programmed” and are ready to work right
out of the box. Changing
set-ups or parameters such as speed, dwell, temperature, or even
machine model type is easily accomplished through the user interface.
A standard control feature, WRD creates UI's that are among
the most intuitive in the industry.
