Since 1994 we have helped food manufacturing companies increase their production and maintain their existing systems.

No job is too small for us.
It is part of our corporate culture to embrace the ideal of human endeavor which turns ideas into reality. By embracing a strong work ethic, a high level of professionalism, an open mind, and a friendly disposition, the employees of Atlas Automation are dedicated to being the best in their field.
If you are looking to make your operation more productive, Atlas Automation has all of the necessary resources you need from design to implementation.
To determine the best approach, we will work closely with your team to develop a system which meets all of your requirements. Our designers will transpose your concept into a Process and Instrumentation Drawing (P&ID).
Our controls engineers will tag all devices requiring control and identify all analog, digital, Ethernet and PID control points. We will size all motors, pumps, valves, pipes, tanks, heat exchangers and all other miscellaneous equipment for optimal performance.
We will review the design with your team for final approval. When the design is finalized we will accurately determine the cost of the system. If the cost exceeds your budget we will revisit the design with your team.
During the build phase of the project our control engineers will begin developing the electrical schematics, design the control panels, layout the networks, procure the electrical devices, HMI’s, servers, etc. Our Project Managers will procure the process equipment and layout how the equipment will be physically installed. Once the equipment arrives our panel shop will build the control panels and our installers will begin piping.
During this phase, we produce a document called the functional specification. This details every aspect of control. We recognize how important alarms and interlocks are in the daily operation of your plant, and layout all critical system responses to better protect your operation. When the functional specification is approved by you the customer, our controls engineers will begin developing the PLC program.
After the control system is complete, it undergoes a heavy simulation phase (FAT) before it reaches your facility. We then give you and your operators a demonstration of how your system works.
When the installers complete the piping and the electricians have wired all the devices we begin the commissioning phase where we test I/O, perform water testing, and fine tune the production runs.
When the system is operational we will support your system 24/7 for years to come.
