Techgnostics specializes in the automation of electro-mechanical systems.

With decades of experience designing and implementing computer-controlled motion we've been making machines move since the 1970's.

The examples in our Portfolio are but a small sample of the Motion Control solutions that we have created over the years.  From simple PLC + HMI (Programmable Logic Controller + Human-Machine Interface) to complex multi-axis CNC (Computer Numerical Control) with robotic material handling we have the knowledge and expertise to automate nearly any electro-mechanical system.  With over 30 years of experience in the field there is little we have not seen before.

Engineering and Design

We will work with you to create the most cost-effective solution to your motion-control needs.  From basic PLC and smart-drive systems to complex multiple axis CNC machines, incorporating and upgrading your current product or creating a completely new one, we can take your production to the next level.

Implementation and Testing

When a production machine is upgraded, downtime must be minimized.  Pre-deployment testing and simulation can help reduce the time that a machine or process is off-line.  We have experience with a variety of software and hardware based simulation and verification strategies,  ensuring that the most complete testing possible is performed before "going live"..

Service and Support

An automated system is of no use if it is sitting idle.  Of course we provide full documentation with our products, but what if you have an "orphan"?  In many cases we can research, reverse-engineer, and repair or replace components or complete systems that are no longer supported by the original manufacturer.

This FourCorp seam welder was originally built using a Baldor MINT smart drive and CAN-Bus HMI panel.  The MINT drive had failed and it's program had become corrupted, but that was only the beginning.  The MINT drive was obsolete and the new MINT-II that replaced it incompatible; the software is different, the connectors are different, and the 24 volt power supply, integral to the MINT drive, has been eliminated from the MINT-II.

The software was analyzed and re-written for the MINT-II drive, with IO reassigned to minimize connector and wiring changes. A new 24-volt power supply was added added to the cabinet, the required wiring changes were made, and wires were re-labeled to reflect both the old numbers (corresponding to the printed documentation) and the new numbers (corresponding to the connector assignments on the MINT-II drive).  A few hours of debugging (and the implementation of a few new features requested by the operator!) and this machine was brought back to life.
