DMC has over two decades of experience implementing industrial automation solutions utilizing Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs). We develop new PLC systems from the ground up and also troubleshoot, update, and add to pre-existing PLC systems.
DMC's PLC Engineering Services and Experience
Our PLC platform expertise includes Siemens, Allen-Bradley/Rockwell, Mitsubishi, Beckhoff, Yaskawa, Automation Direct, Omron, GE, Schneider Electric/Modicon, B&R, and others. We integrate PLC systems with other devices (robots, vision cameras, drives, servos, HMIs, SCADA systems) and work with many industrial network protocols and hardware layers (PROFIBUS, PROFINET, Wireless PROFINET, Ethernet I/P, Modbus, RS-232, RS-485, SERCOS, CAN, EtherCAT, and others). We work with Safety PLCs and Safety I/O as well.
In addition to factory automation, we also develop software libraries, APIs, AOIs, and function blocks that enable end users to easily integrate our clients' hardware products into a PLC platform.
DMC's Software Approach
We focus on well-designed and structured, modular PLC code appropriate for any factory. Our reusable code utilizes function and class-based architectures and adheres to IEC 61131-3 standards including structured text, function blocks, and sequential flow charts. The benefit is a flexible system that is easier to understand, debug, and modify for future needs.
We have libraries of previously developed, reusable code available for new systems that help reduce development cost and time.
Our PLC Programming Team
DMC has one of the largest teams of PLC programmers in the US with over 60 in-house experts across multiple offices. We are available to take on large projects, even on short notice, and quickly ramp up by working as an extension of your internal team. Our vast experience allows us to offer custom and application specific training as an added benefit to our clients.
Our company has implemented hundreds of PLC systems for clients in a wide range of industries, including food and beverage, oil and gas, packaging, and automotive.
