Having already pioneered a more collaborative approach to designing and delivering automation systems employing low power drives, Mitsubishi Electric UK has announced a new network of Drive Solutions Centres (DSCs). Each one sharing technology, experience and ideas to focus on providing a full service offering for the entire lifecycle of larger capacity low voltage and medium voltage variable speed drives.
National Sales Manager Stuart Woodhead explains how this will benefit customers, “Having helped UK industry move forward with our class leading low power drive systems, it’s now time to further improve our overall service proposition for larger capacity drives. This will include system design & build, installation, commissioning and the ongoing need for site service and support.
“By working together, we believe Mitsubishi Electric and a select number of key partners can deliver better operating efficiency with improved system performance and visibility using intelligent automation solutions as part of a turnkey service. Dedicated project management and client communications are expected to improve turnaround times in all the major industry sectors.”
The knowledge developed by the new DSC network will be actively shared, improving every aspect of service delivery for customers; from design and installation to ongoing service and site support. Simple areas, such as drive optimisation, ideal operating conditions, smart peripherals and optimised panel architecture, can deliver significant savings in purchase and operating costs.
Ongoing service support is a key aspect of the DSC, including on-site service for optimisation, updates and repairs. Smart condition monitoring and predictive maintenance for various components and systems, which help to avoid unscheduled downtime, will also be part of the DSC offering.
Announcements will follow as each DSC comes online, however for more information, please visit www.drivesolutionscentre.com
