Haskell employs industry experience to deliver reliable packaging and material handling automation solutions that exceed client expectations. Our approach ensures that OEM equipment is fully integrated into the line by incorporating additional layers of communication to improve line controls and overall balance. Additionally, we work closely with you to understand your existing controls platform in order to design and integrate a system that will be familiar to your maintenance team, reduce spare parts costs, and ultimately improve overall performance.

Haskell can also work with you to identify opportunities to upgrade existing lines in order to preserve assets and delay expensive line replacements. Reused equipment will be thoroughly reviewed from an obsolescence and safety standpoint in order to develop a migration strategy that best fits your long term goals.

Operator/Maintenance Friendly Approach

At the heart of any packaging or material handling system are the operators and maintenance personnel. Haskell designs flexible, easy to operate and maintain automation systems that don’t require a full time engineering department to support. We do this by following a simple strategy:

  • Use real world values such as product size, conveyor width, and maximum conveyor speed to control the system
  • Incorporate product recipes that make the system flexible and allow personnel without a controls background to securely maintain existing products and add products
  • Keep PLC logic simple and easy to follow
  • Device descriptions are maintained from the electrical schematic through the program to the tag in the field to allow for ease of troubleshooting
  • Present operators with the information they need on the HMI to understand their current status and avoid nuisance warnings and alarms that become a distraction
