Westbury has a 16,000 sq ft manufacturing shop floor with flexible bay areas which consist of a production management team, highly trained and experienced control panel builders, automation equipment, stores and a dedicated test section.
From small sized, simple junction boxes through to mid-range cabinets and large floor standing units, we can build (wire and assemble) control panels of all sizes.
Whether your requirements are high volume, repeat or bespoke, Westbury have the capability and capacity to fulfil your needs.
Westbury customers benefit from its pre-production service which checks their control panel designs and specifications before production is begun.
Subsequently, our engineers proactively highlight and resolve potential issues for customers to save time and cost.
Our operations at Westbury are managed by utilising professional WinMan ERP Software, ensuring all areas of the business integrate and maintain quality, efficiency and traceability.
Westbury are able to offer customers an in-house design service which incorporates detailed control panel hardware and / or software system design for a broad range of industrial control and automation applications.
For a comprehensive listing and further details of our design capabilities please see control systems.
Westbury are officially a UL listed facility, and as such are able to work to the UL508A Industrial Control Panels code.
Working to these standards for control panel manufacture and design, allows us to serve American and Canadian markets.
Westbury are able to respond to customers with a new requirement, which may need to be developed, prototyped and evaluated, before a commitment is made to roll out a full manufacturing order.
Our draughtsmen at Westbury support both the manufacturing and design aspects of the business. They are conversant in industry CAD packages to aid with control panel layouts, schematic creation and component selection.
CAD drawing software is also utilised for pre-production purposes, allowing customer drawings to be digitally checked and revised when needed.
Benefits include the ability to take advantage of EPLAN’s advanced automated tools and portal data features – selecting from a catalogue of industry standard branded components.
Westbury CAD engineers produce well thought out layouts and simplified wiring schematics by alternating between the physical and electrical, until all potential problems have been anticipated and resolved, to produce the most successful outcome possible.
These are developed digitally to help communicate ideas and outcomes and resolve issues on-screen, rather than later on the production line. The 3D capability is particularly useful in being able to ‘get inside’ the control panel with all of its components and available space to make critical assessments of the effectiveness of the design.
We have engineers conversant in all of the major brands in the field of industrial control automation, providing an open, proven and versatile service to our customers.
As system integrators for Schneider Electric and Rockwell Automation, Westbury have access to key technological developments both in terms of software and hardware – an advantage that we pass onto our customer base.
Designed especially for manufacturers of automation devices or machine and plant builders, CodeSys is readily utilised by Westbury engineers.
As a standard coding platform worldwide for industrial control networks, CodeSys offers our customers unrivalled openness and compatibility.
Westbury engineers have been trained and certified by TÜV, to meet the stringent requirements of machinery safety, currently legislated for the design and supply of control and automation of machinery systems.
Specifically, our engineers hold the following standards – EN ISO 13849-1:2015 & EN62061.
Our engineers have built up an impressive portfolio of industrial networking solutions, being well equipped to make progress with the potential of the ‘Internet of Things’ and ‘Industry 4.0’.
Westbury engineers offer customers comprehensive support for the development and implementation of reliable and powerful communication networks.
Engineers at Westbury can develop J1939 protocol solutions that provide valuable information about engine performance including coolant temperature, oil pressure, speed, and associated generator warnings.
We develop Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) platforms, using software and hardware for industrial applications to efficiently control processes locally or remotely, whilst directly interacting with devices through HMI.
Westbury engineers are Open Platform Communications (OPC) proficient, offering flexible responses and options to meet our customer preferences.
Westbury use Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) for automated customised control processes in various industrial applications to control motors, pumps, lights, fans, circuit breakers and other machinery.
Westbury offer effective solutions for Human Machine Interfaces (HMIs), from simple designs, through to more sophisticated needs, to help users competently and safely operate many types of industrial machinery.
Our engineers are able to assist customers with creating a Functional Design Specification (FDS) to serve as a pre-development / production guideline document. Typically, an FDS document will include determining requirements, objectives, specifications and testing procedures as a lasting reference.
Our team of dedicated test engineers are at hand to test every control panel manufactured at Westbury. Depending on customer requirements, we are also able to develop test processes tailored to specific needs.
Westbury have extensive experience working for customers, on-site, at their workplaces. This involves our engineers working with our control panels and systems, which customers have installed in readiness for commissioning. We have a proven track record undertaking commissions across the UK and overseas.
Our qualified engineers work in the field across a range of sectors, including quarry and mining, security screening, defence and automotive. Westbury field engineers also carry TÜV Safety Certiﬁcation.
Westbury H&S management ensure that where required, staff members are properly trained and qualified to work off-site. As part of our ISO 45001:2018 we are committed to reducing risk, accidents and injury in the workplace.
We also create and retain official records for works completed for future reference / access.
