Project description:

Digital Dynamics® helped a customer in the semiconductor manufacturing industry achieve substantial gains by providing engineering enhancements to their existing design. By integrating their PLCs with a new PCA interface in a single enclosure, we delivered a fully tested turnkey PLC-based control solution. By having DDI manufacture a complete integrated unit, the customer reduced their manufacturing time by five man-days. And, by improving the reliability of the cable connections, we significantly increased their MTBF and the overall reliability of their product.

Components of this PLC control system included 16 PLC modules, a large interface PCB, and an extensive array of interconnecting cables. Housed in a cold rolled steel enclosure with a brushed bright zinc finish, we fully assembled and 100% tested all DDI designed components before shipping the systems to the customer.

Our turnkey services, from design and development through to manufacturing and delivery, provided a process control system that set a new standard of performance. Contact us today to learn how our engineering expertise can provide the same benefit to your next project.
