With a focus on delivering highly customized automation and supervision systems, we are a safe pair of hands for all your projects, illustrated by examples below.

In a machinery context, a specialist contract undertaken by CMR included the refurbishment of a machine crawler’s motor system for one of Europe’s largest power plant operators. This project covered the wheel excavator, carrier band, lifting arm, arm rotator and primary power source in order to improve coal carrying efficiency.

Involving the replacement of eleven motors and servicing of another two, the project also covered the deployment of associated equipment such as hydraulic motors and lubrication pumps.

Implemented with Schneider PLC’s, CMR was able to perform the refurbishment on-time and to strict specification, validating advanced calculations to control travel speed, orientation and lifting.

A defense project utilized a custom CMR PLC based automation system, on a submarine deployment within Europe that involved the creation of an automated weapon handlings system implemented within a Schneider PLC framework.

This project carried a high level of sophistication and calculated many operational parameters, including reviews of mechanical structure (finite element analysis), reliability/durability and the thermal exchange properties of the systems deployed.

CMR's also has many man years experience in providing industrial automation services with process industry clients such as those involved in manufacturing food and beverages, building products, chemical, petrochemical and utility sectors.
