OUR APPROACH

IDENTIFY OPPORTUNITIES

A key to increasing your profit margin is using industrial automation to maximize your production. With this, every little thing adds up.

Every controller, process, and work cell in your plant must operate at peak performance if you’re to boost your bottom line.

When you work with us, you’ll have a team that’s experienced in efficiency supporting you throughout the project life-cycle and beyond. We take the time to listen to you and gain a thorough understanding of your business goals. And our determined engineers scour your plant to find opportunities to improve operational efficiency by applying intelligent automation. Our goal is to help you get more saleable products out of your facility through more efficient production.

And our determined engineers scour your plant to find opportunities to improve operational efficiency by applying intelligent automation. Our goal is to help you get more saleable products out of your facility through more efficient production.

IMPROVING OPERATIONAL CONSISTENCY

To increase your number of saleable products, we aim to make your production process as perfectly consistent as possible. Why? Because that reduces your risk.

Once we’ve thoroughly assessed your existing production, we identify solutions that will reduce variation in your process. Using programmed logic to automate functions in your process, we create repeatable procedures that are reliably consistent, time in and time out. And that means your batches will be on-spec and up to quality standards, reducing rework, reducing your costs.

AUTOMATION TRAINING TO EQUIP YOUR TEAM

At Malisko Engineering, we understand that efficiency isn’t just about equipment. It’s about the proper use of that equipment. It’s about personnel. That’s why we provide the best high-level and equipment-specific training possible.

When we come into your plant and automate your system, we align our work to the team you have on hand. We are there post-project support as you need to fully equip your team to operate, troubleshoot, and maintain your system. Even after our hands-on training and system hand-off, we are there for you. From simulated real-world runs to understandable guides, your team will have everything they need to fully master the proper use of your automation system.

SYSTEMS THAT KEEP IT SIMPLE

We not only train your team to fully use your automated production system, we design and implement it with them in mind from day one. We learn the skill sets that you have on hand and incorporate that knowledge into the solutions that we implement.

We specify Human Machine Interfaces (HMIs) that make it simple for your operators, engineers, quality, and maintenance staff to know your process. They will be able to efficiently operate, troubleshoot, and maintain your system. If your production needs change, your system will too. And our automated systems even monitor production variances and down-times, keeping your operators always aware of their environment. They not only know what’s going on, but they also have actionable information and a set process for keeping your system humming at full production.

To ensure simplicity, we choose common equipment that’s easy to replace. And we partner directly with top-quality manufacturers and distributors who can ensure that if you need a component, it will ship same-day or next day. We limit custom parts, and we build expansion potential directly into your system.

MAINTENANCE ENGINEERING

When it comes to maintenance engineering for your automated manufacturing process, collaboration is key. Every processing unit in your plant and every team member has a purpose. It takes a full staff, with a complete range of complementary skill sets, to operate, maintain, and manage your manufacturing facility. From operators to maintenance engineers and everyone in between, each person on your production line has to be on the same page.

Throughout our automation solutions site assessment, detail engineering design and system integration work, we align each component, code, and process with the skill sets on your team.

Since we design, develop, and install your systems integration code and components, we’re knowledgeable in your system and your production. And through our 24/7 post-project maintenance engineering support, we’re there with you – helping every member of your team execute their role effectively.

POST-COMMISSIONING MAINTENANCE ENGINEERING

If you require it, we can provide you a comprehensive, post-commissioning maintenance engineering service. Because we have complete automation expertise and a full automation support team, we can assist with keeping your system operating at maximum efficiency. When you invest in automation, you invest in the maximum production of your plant so if you need our maintenance engineering support to fully pay off your investment in automation, we’re there. Everything we do is about achieving a return on your process automation investment.

REMOTE SUPPORT

We encourage you to bring us into your maintenance and support process. We’ll set up a Virtual Private Network (VPN) that allows us to remotely connect to your process so we can address support needs as they arise and provide real-time support from anywhere in the world.

INDUSTRIAL AUTOMATION FOR RESULTS

In our more than 20 years of helping manufacturers, we’ve intelligently applied automation for hundreds of companies across a wide range of industries. And we’ve earned repeat business from 90 percent of our clients.

Have a question or do you want more output, fewer lost batches and better reports? We can show you how to improve your production and maximize your successes through industrial automation.
