At Control Freaks, we provide a full range of industrial control and automation services including the following:
Design & Specification: By assessing your requirements we’re able to put together a detailed specification and concept of the system we propose. We’re then able to identify and choose the right equipment and component for the right environment.
Following this, we create a complete set of CAD drawings to demonstrate the process and electrical components of the required system, mapping out each element clearly. These drawings are created for the engineer to work from to create the system. They can also be used as a reference point to aid the diagnosis of electrical issues later down the line.
We’ll work with you to find the right solution, whether its conceptual or existing, to create an automated system that will save you time, money and improve output.
Industrial Networking: We understand individual manufacturer networks through to modern global ethernet based systems, which allows us to provide unique integration services, ensuring your machines “talk” to each other.
This is the perfect solution to upgrading or modifying a system.
This allows you to automate tedious functions and be more precise than ever before, resulting in less wastage and a better, more consistent product.
System Integration: We are problem solvers and specialise in system integration, programming the various types of PLCs (Programmable Logic Controllers), HMIs, robots and motion systems.
To ensure your machines are able to talk to one another and provide you with the best results, we take one system and make it work with another.

We’ve seen the evolution of individual manufacturer networks and technologies to global ethernet based systems, which not only allows us to excel at system integration, but enables us to modify and upgrade obsolete software or server motors.
Servicing & Maintenance: Down time can cost hundreds of pounds per hour, which is why we offer servicing, 24/7 on call breakdown cover, maintenance contracts, obsolescence reports and surveys.
We also provide a consultancy and preventative maintenance service for risk aversion, mitigation, compliance and to limit the potential for downtime.
Installing a SCADA (Supervisory Control & Data Acquisition) or MES (Manufacturing Execution System) system of software and hardware elements allows you to acquire critical data in real time.
By directly interacting with machines or devices such as sensors, valves, pumps, motors, and HMI software and by utilising our reporting packages, you can obtain raw data, such as weight or wastage information and gas levels and turn it into actionable business insights.
Machine Safety & Compliance:
We are incredibly well thought of in our field for the functional safety services we offer, which include performance levels and SIL (Safety integrity level) ratings, along with CE Marking and ATEX certification.
We’re also able to assist with PUWER (Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations) assessments.
