R&L Engineering, Inc. provides quality services to a diverse range of industries. It is our mission to find solutions that work best for our clients. We believe the best way to achieve this goal is to work with our clients as a unified team to develop solutions and provide services.
Today's economic climate has affected company performance and growth in industries utilizing automation. Uncertainties regarding the current recession, fluctuating prices, globalization and political forces are limiting manufacturers' ability to invest in new plants and process automation technologies. Limited investment capital means that companies can only undertake automation projects with the shortest potential payback periods. When properly designed and engineered, automation solutions increase production rates, improve yields and reduce energy consumption.
R&L Engineering has the industrial automation experience and expertise needed to optimize the investment in your control systems, networks and plant-floor information infrastructure. Our proven capabilities enable us to look at your entire operation from a complete business perspective, from the plant floor to the boardroom, to maximize your total investment. We deliver automation solutions for major companies across a variety of industries worldwide. Utilize our experience in automation to your advantage and discover executable solutions for your challenges.
Our automation expertise spans diverse manufacturing industries including citrus processing, forest products, nonwovens and web handling, food and beverage, and mining.
R&L Engineering will develop a logical integration solution. Our Clients have experienced greater profitability as a result of our systems integration services.
R&L Engineering begins with analyzing your current system and processes. We then select the right components and subsystems for automation integration. When your control systems, facilities systems, skid controls and power monitoring systems work together to control your plant, monitoring and maintaining operations becomes easier and more efficient.
R&L Engineering’s core project standards include full documentation through all the phases of the project and fully testing the control systems prior to on-site delivery and start-up. This includes but not limited to both PLC and HMI systems.
R&L Engineering ensures the success of your integration project and maximizes your business benefits.
R&L Engineering provides a range of services to users of industrial Programmable Logic Controllers. Programming and configuration brings to life the detailed design of the instrumentation and control system that is developed during the design phase of our automation projects. Our control engineers have extensive experience working with every major PLC system. They apply their knowledge in using the latest engineering tools to convert logic diagrams into PLC ladder logic, to write generic and custom code, to build I/O and to control applications using standard system function blocks and other features. With the features available in modern control systems, even complex advanced control strategies can be configured and programmed in these systems.
A critical success factor in control automation systems is how well operators and maintenance personnel can operate and manage the system on a day-to-day basis. This is accomplished by using human-machine-interface (HMI) and/or Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) software solutions. R&L Engineering has extensive experience creating easy-to-use and reliable interfaces across several different industries. A system with a well-designed operator interface can increase your efficiency, effectiveness and satisfaction. All of our systems include historical trending, report generation and alarming.
R&L Engineering is experienced with most major drive manufacturers’ Variable Frequency Drives (A-B, Siemens, ABB, Toshiba, Yaskawa, Eurotherm, and others) including stand-alone applications and coordinated system class drives. Along with the associated interface/communication products and protocols needed to meet your standards.
