Expanded Capabilities in Controls Technology
A few months ago, B+R Elektro-Steuerungstechnik became the newest member of the FRIMO Group. Integration of the 40 employees from the small industrial business in Ibbenbueren will expand FRIMO’s competence in controls technology.
The B+R team, operating in the controls field since 1982, brings future-oriented core capabilities to the FRIMO Group. The company has developed an array of solutions for customers around the world in production technology, process technology, and automation in industrial buildings. B+R Elektro-Steuerungstechnik and its employees plan and develop high-quality solutions in electrical engineering and automation. Their main focus is on automation technology in specialty machines and equipment. This requires highly-qualified employees, as well as keeping up with the newest available system and software components. New concepts must constantly be developed for various machines and for the widest range of automation requirements.
With construction, production, and software/automation departments, the complete spectrum of services is covered, from electrical plans and electrical panel construction to control panel production. If necessary, complete installation of all electrical components can be taken care of – both domestically and internationally – as well as testing all necessary measurements and providing testing documentation. Technical controls concepts and writing programs, such as for SPS controls including visualization, data collection (SQL data banks), and data analysis, are completed internally. Other services include preparing standards, project management, and machine start-ups. As a Siemens Solution Partner and Siemens PCS7 Specialist, employees undergo continuous training. This is required in order to be able to fulfill customer requests one-hundred percent and implement a complex problem-solving approach, as well as new, innovative ideas in automation solutions. We stand for customized solutions based on the newest automation products.
B+R strengthens the competence of the FRIMO team with their many years of experience in automation solutions for metering machines and foam equipment, such as turn tables, from construction and production to complete system start-up. Time and costs play a substantial roll in the course of today’s automation in plant construction. With increasing globalization and rapidly progressing digitization, we are also working on new standards to solve future controls functions effectively and efficiently.
