Control Engineering Advice

The importance of control engineering consultancy in modern systems

Introduction

In a world that is becoming increasingly dependent on automation and advanced systems, control engineering plays a crucial role. But what exactly is control engineering, and why is professional control engineering advice so valuable? In this article, we delve deeper into the world of control engineering and explain how DotX Control Solutions helps companies optimize their systems.

What is control engineering?

Control engineering is the art and science of adjusting or controlling the operation of various systems to obtain a desired behavior or output. Whether you're dealing with temperature control in a building, speed control of a motor, or even advanced industrial processes, control engineering is the backbone that ensures stability, efficiency, and reliability.

Why control engineering advice?

  • Optimization of processes: With well-tuned control systems, companies can make their operations more efficient, leading to cost savings and increased productivity.
  • Stability and reliability: A poorly tuned system can be unstable and may lead to unwanted fluctuations or malfunctions. Professional advice ensures systems that perform consistently and reliably.
  • Innovation: By utilizing the latest techniques such as Model Predictive Control (MPC) or advanced PID controls, companies can benefit from the latest innovations in the world of control engineering.

Our approach

At DotX Control Solutions, we approach each project with a fresh perspective. Our team of experts first evaluates the customer's needs and challenges. Then, we offer tailor-made solutions that match the unique requirements of each system.

Temperatuurregeling voor een chips-extruder

Bij PEPSICO wordt een extruder gebruikt om van ruwe grondstoffen Hamka’s chips te maken. Dit gebeurt door verschillende ingredienten te mixen in een extruder, waar het na verschillende verwarmings ‘zones’ geextrudeerd wordt tot een ‘Hamka’ vormpje. Na deze extrusie wordt het ‘Hamka’ vormpje gebakken, en in een zakje gestopt. Hierbij is een nauwkeurige temperatuursbeheersing in de extruder nodig, want als de vormpjes te heet geextrudeerd worden, zetten ze teveel uit. De klant ondervond hierbij het probleem dat de Hamka chipjes niet meer in het zakje pasten, of er zelfs uit barsten, omdat ze soms te groot waren. Ze hebben Dotx…
