We undertake the highest-quality electronic, electro-mechanical and cosmetic rebuilds of damaged or badly-worn devices down to component level. Extensive in-house test facilities are adapted to suit each project's requirements, with appropriate test programmes being devised accordingly.
Our award winning PLC repair facility is accredited to British and International standards and is recognised throughout the world. We have ISO 9001 certification so that you can be sure of our quality.
Bespoke PLC Test Rigs
Having the ability to fully simulate the operating conditions of a repaired PLC is crucial to our repair process. Northern Industrial has therefore invested thousands of man hours developing hundreds of bespoke test rigs for a wide range of PLC & PAC systems. This enables our PLC repair engineers to accurately test the functionality of repaired units including loading programs, simulating inputs & outputs and utilising communication signals.
Highly Trained Engineers
On average a member of our PLC repair team will have a minimum of three years of experience working on programmable logic controllers. Our specialist engineers receive regular independent training on PLC systems to ensure they are completely up to date on the latest systems.
We understand that just because a manufacturer has made a range obsolete, it doesn’t mean that companies will be able to upgrade straight away. This is why we offer our support to users of legacy systems long after the original manufacturer. We specialise in providing ongoing support to companies whose production processes are reliant on end of life programmable logic controllers.
PLCs reach the end of their Product Life Cycle for a variety of reasons. Parts or resources may no longer be available, new technology may offer new solutions or the products are no longer economically feasible for the OEM to continue supporting. We continue supporting your obsolete PLCs in a number of ways:
Certified professional repair centre
Thousands of obsolete PLC spares and modules on the shelf
Trusted global supply chain
12 month warranty on all parts and repairs
As part of the repair process, Northern Industrial has worked with clients to introduce better working practices and product improvements. One such improvement, when possible, is to backup the customers program and parameters before repairing the faulty PLC module. For some customers, the program is often more valuable than the hardware and being able to back it up means you can get back up and running in as quick a time as possible as there is no need to reprogram your PLC.
We offer the most comprehensive PLC repair service in the UK. Our repair service is designed to be hassle-free, straightforward and minimise your risk. This is why we have a No Fix No Fee promise in place for those irreparable items and an all inclusive 12 month warranty for every part we repair.
