Improving performance

One of the biggest challenges that any employer faces is the development and training of their personnel. In partnership with our technology suppliers, we offer a series of hardware and software workshops designed to help your teams increase their knowledge base and improve performance.

Training + Product Workshops

We understand that it can be difficult to keep up with the latest automation technology that can improve the efficiency of your machines & plant, and for that reason we offer regular training and product update workshops.

Training

PLC Software can be complex, however each program is unique and has been designed to carry out specific functions for a particular automation system.

Engineers that inherit legacy software typically struggle to understand the original programmers coding. This can make diagnosing and rectifying software errors very difficult and altering/upgrading the coding a near impossible task.

Our technical support team have decades of experience with automation software. They are best placed to evaluate your existing software and can develop bespoke training packages to help your engineers fully understand the existing software.

Courses Include:

  • Introductory TIA Portal courses
  • TIA Portal Best Practise courses
  • Maintainence courses for Step 7 Classic
  • Maintainence courses for S5 legacy software

 

Product Workshops

Are your engineering teams struggling to regularly familiarise themselves with new automation & control equipment.

That's why we offer onsite product updates and workshops as well as shorter ‘lunch and learn’ sessions, allowing us to discuss your specific application in more detail. This gives you the opportunity to get hands-on experience with the latest technology at your premises.

Additionally, we can provide interactive sessions that focus on the latest software packages from our manufacturing partners, enabling you to flexibly and cost-effectively upskill your people, available at all of our branches across the UK.

Popular workshops include: 

  •  LOGO 8 Masterclass 
  • SIMATIC Safety Integrated 
  • SICK Functional Safety 
  • Phoenix Contact Cybersecurity

Introduction to the TIA Portal

The Totally Integrated Automation Portal enables you to digitise the workflow of all automation projects. With the TIA portal, you can integrate all important components such as; safety, security, control, HMI, drives, distributed I/O and motion control. The standard interface across all tasks significantly reduces your engineering time. 

The TIA portal is constantly evolving with additional features being added on a regular basis. This can be overwhelming for new users. We offer hands-on courses with our resident TIA Portal expert designed to increase proficiency and performance.
