The EnSight Solutions engineering team is continually looking for new ways to help our customers reach their processing goals.
Recently, our electrical engineering team chose to relook at our Press Room Equipment line of servo feeds to determine if we could improve our controls. They quoted and researched a variety of control packages to determine which would fit our customers’ needs best.
During the process, our team looked at everything from cost to ease of functionality to supportability and more.
In the end, our team determined that Mitsubishi Electric servo controls fit our machines and our customers’ needs the best. Read on to learn more about the benefits Mitsubishi controls offer.
As material, labor and other costs continue rising, the EnSight team searches for ways to provide relief to our customers without sacrificing quality, functionality or efficiency. When quoting different control systems, our team took cost into consideration to help avoid raising the prices of our servo feeds any more than necessary. In doing so, they found that even though Mitsubishi Electric is a very well-known brand with quality componentry, the controls were still very cost effective.
Speaking of reputation, Mitsubishi Electric has been in business for more than 100 years. In that time, it has earned a reputation for producing quality components across a variety of industries. In addition, Mitsubishi Electric has always been a force of innovation in the industry and holds a number of patents.
The Mitsubishi Electric interface consists of a touchscreen where processors can easily pull up and start any job at a moment’s notice. It’s extremely intuitive, allowing the user to quickly scroll through the menus to access the program they want.
A big benefit of the Mitsubishi Electric controls package is that it lets EnSight electrical team members provide support directly to the customer. With some controls packages, our team can’t provide programming, service or even troubleshooting aid unless the issue is mechanical. By installing Mitsubishi Electric controls on servo feeds going forward, the EnSight team will be able to directly help customers with any potential issues or questions, rather than having to send them or the parts to the component manufacturer. This will result in faster service so processors can get back online as quickly as possible.
Another great benefit of the Mitsubishi Electric package is that Mitsubishi Electric controls are backward and forward compatible. This means that EnSight can help any organization with a Mitsubishi Electric controls package by upgrading, servicing and updating part of the package. With some controls packages, this isn’t possible-the entire package would need to be replaced.
In the end, the forward/backward compatibility will result in more options, easier upgrades, faster repairs, a longer life and less engineering time.
In summary, by including Mitsubishi Electric controls packages as a standard offering on all Press Room Equipment servo applications, including cut-to-length lines and standalone feeds, EnSight Solutions can provide processors better quality controls that are easier to learn, use, service and upgrade for years to come. We will continue offering different control upgrades for organizations who want a different brand of controls.
