Company Training

Foreword from David Simm, Managing Director of Scantime

Back in 2004, i founded Scantime Engineering Ltd. and began utilising my 35 years of experience in Industry to provide PLC/SCADA Training and Automation Services to individuals and companies worldwide with my the help of my Scantime team.

To date, i'm proud to say that we are now working closely with EAL, Tyne Metropolitan College, AIS Training Group, TTE Technical Training and Mitsubishi in the hopes to raise the skill levels of Engineers, making Industry a safer and more efficient place to work.

Today’s industrial manufacturing processes are controlled by PLCs, and engineers who work in industry or who are trying to secure jobs in industry, are expected to know how to work with PLCs.

When a production process stops working, engineers in critical situations use the PLC program to locate the cause of the fault. Engineer’s are expected to be able to connect to the PLC, locate specific areas of the program, monitor the Program and work out where the missing signals are, which has caused the process to stop working.

Engineer’s are also expected to make minor modifications correctly and safely to a program to overcome problems that cannot be quickly rectified, these actions are standard practice for PLC engineers to help reduce downtime and get production back up and running.

Engineers who strengthen their skills in this area gain the benefits of increased income and job security.
