PCMC Vision Press Safety Upgrade
Sheridan Electric was tasked with integrating a new safety system on the PCMC Vision Printing Press at Sonoco Flexible Packaging to meet the requirements of the Occupational Health & Safety Act and Regulations. Working closely with the safety engineers to meet Pre-Start Health and Safety Requirements (PHSR), Sheridan Electric was able to design an electrical safety circuit that provides certifiably safe operation of the equipment without adversely affecting the intended functionality of the machine. Key elements of the project included the installation of all safety sensors, integration of the new controls into the existing press control system, electrical schematics of the integration, and commissioning of the entire system. As part of our turn-key services Sheridan Electric was also responsible for the electrical disconnection of the press in Winnipeg and the reconnection in Ontario prior to 2012. This included all power distribution needed for the press at its new location, new lighting for quality control and more.
Key elements of the electrical design include:
- Schmersal safety rated electronic magnetic interlocks with feedback
- Honeywell Gas Detection System
- 6 (six) LEL Gas Sniffer Detectors integrated into the Honeywell gas detection system
- Area scanners for safety in both the un-wind and re-wind areas
- Push button system for operator resets of safety system throughout the machine
- HMI for safety system monitoring and feedback from safety PLC
- SICK safety PLC including all programming and commissioning
- Dual redundant safety contactors for all servo motors with auxiliary feedback to the safety system
- SICK safety rated door switches
- Complete and professionally drawn electrical integration schematics
Sheridan Electric is excited to announce the recently completed installation of R&M Plastics new 30,000 sq ft facility at 3-282 King Street Barrie, Ontario.
July 2012 – Barrie, Ontario
The project, which started in the last quarter of 2011, involved an extensive move of all extrusion, injection molding machinery, assembly lines, packaging lines, and maintenance machinery from R&M’s previous location in Brampton, Ontario to the new facility in Barrie.
Sheridan Electric, in conjunction with R&M management, ensured the highest priority always remained minimizing production downtime amid the move so as to allow R&M to continue to meet customer demands.
All electrical installations at the new location were pre-done and thoroughly planned out to accommodate the process equipment as it arrived; allowing for quick power ups and testing times on all production lines.
Upon completion Sheridan Electric continues to maintain and service all equipment and general electrics at the facility, all the while acting as partners in R&M Plastic’s goal of continually exceeding customer expectations and industry safety standards.
Sheridan Electric Services Ltd. is proud
to announce the completion of Capris Group's
local Data Centre expansion.
July 2010 – Mississauga, Ontario
Five Years ago Sheridan Electric had the opportunity to complete the first phase of a major data centre installation (see Data Centre Video here) project for The Capris Group. In what would prove to be a lasting relationship, we recently had the privilege to complete phase two of the project: an even larger, second data centre installation.
Due to the sensitive nature of the data centres and the numerous companies that rely on them for their network infrastructure, all the work was done to the highest possible standards. With no margin for error, great precautions had to be taken in all aspects of the project right from the initial design. Safety and the longevity of the installation was paramount and our electricians understood the importance -nothing but the highest standards of workmanship and proper installation procedures were needed for this project to be a success.
This major project was completed on time and on budget and now The Capris Group data centre is operating 24/7, offering all its customers peace of mind in knowing that their data is safe, secure, and will always be accessible.
We at Sheridan Electric would like to thank The Capris Group for allowing us to participate in this successful project and wish them all the prosperity in their business now and in the future.
