Case Studies

McVities Line 2 Conveyor

  • Fox Controls are specialists in control systems engineering who design, manufacture, integrate and install automation and process control systems for use in the industrial sector. We can provide the complete bespoke automation solution or any part thereof, from control panel design, software programs – PLC, SCADA and HMI, installation and commissioning.
  • Fox controls have no in house facility to build designed control panels.
  • HTS lead role was to review schematics and Build only, provide point to point testing.

Objectives and Deliverables

  • FOX controls required a build only package. HTS Group can keep costs low by allowing engagement with our approved wiremen only so no Engineering costs from our design team are incurred.

PROCESS and Conclusions

  • HTS Group are often approached by design companies to aid them in build only projects. Our purpose built facilities at The Heath in Runcorn offer a perfect partnership model for companies to 3rd party out their designs for control panel builds.
  • We offer anything from build only with free issue parts labour to full BOM purchase, materials onsite handling, Schematic review, G.A drawing only against produced schematics, and onsite delivery / install of fully built panels.
  • We also have facilities for on site panel mechanical modification including welding, drilling, tapping and bespoke frame requirements for panel mounts.
  • Workshop airline facilities for valve testing.
  • Full small bore (swagelock type build and test facilities).
  • If labelling and marking is preferred to be included, a review of the Schematics is all we need to print and supply all control panel labelling, idents and carriers.
  • Panels can be provided glanded or unglanded according to customer requirements.
  • Our experienced wiremen also have the initiative to spot potential mis-design of under-rated cabling specification, incorrect MCB selection for example and shortages in free issue materials in the provided manufacturing construction packs.
  • Our experienced wiremen are well versed in red-penning of schematics and communication back to the client in a timely manner ensuring the smoothest possible BUILD only projects are delivered seamlessly.
  • Unlike other BUILD ONLY workshops, HTS Group provide a full internal FAT point to point testing of all panels including earth bonding prior to release from our workshop. This is part of our service – as we only put our Build name to quality products. HTS are happy to host clients to witness this testing free of charge in person or remotely using our video links.
  • ALL build work is fully signed off and given a 12 month manufacturing warranty for peace of mind.
