Our float glass control panel range

Along with linear motors our team also manufactures the associated equipment for the linear motors. This includes the full control system for the control of the linear motors. Our control panels utilise high quality products and are custom built to meet site specific requirements.

Our design and manufacturing team custom build control systems and have the latest design capabilities, test facilities and the latest electrical AutoCAD design software. Our fully equipped workshop is staffed by experienced electrical control panel builders based at our manufacturing facility in Liverpool. They, together with our team of project engineers, enable us to offer you a complete solution to your control system requirements.

Having a vast amount of experience we custom build a wide range of control panels from small pump starts, to one off bespoke testing panels for specific applications. Using standard electrical enclosures or purpose-designed enclosures, we can offer assembly which involves any combination of conventional control equipment or computer/PLC systems.
