Quad Plus is an industry leading system integrator providing motors and controls for the metals industry. We offer complete solutions, from meeting with your team and understanding your goals to creating a high quality, high specification system. Once you’re up and running, we provide parts and expertise to keep your systems operating efficiently.
Our in-depth knowledge of products and applications available means you get the best solutions based on your requirements. We will take the time to understand your specification needs and install systems from the ground up, including control system enclosures to ensure your requirements are met.
Plus, we partner with control system parts manufacturers to ensure fast sourcing and fair pricing. We also support systems on-site or remotely to keep your operation up and running.
No matter what stage of metal processing system integration you are in, we can help. Our service team has the expertise to build, power, and maintain every system from the most straightforward setup to the most complex.
Our design process begins with modeling so we can solve problems before production begins. Whether you are supplying the specifications or our team is working directly with your maintenance team to analyze existing equipment, we will diagram solutions and plan the next stages.
During the conceptual stage of your project, we start with prototype development to detect problems before they happen. We test theories on a small scale and work out problems before production. The result is lower costs and greater accuracy with your final installation.
Coordinating with multiple vendors is frustrating and stressful at best. With a single point of contact, you’ll enjoy a fully-integrated solution from design and development to manufacturing and implementation.
We offer secure, remote diagnostics and on-site service and repairs. That means faster troubleshooting and less downtime. Plus, we partner directly with control systems parts manufacturers to save you time and money.
Whether you are producing tissue paper or steel products, proper tension control is critical to producing consistent high quality results. We are experts at both of these extremes. Quad Plus has the proven experience to assist you with the design, selection of tension zones, and controls for new machines. For existing assets, we can re-tune and optimize your system or provide major retrofits/repowering packages that extend the life of your mechanical systems. Quad Plus knows how to keep machines running while reducing downtime and changeover.
We start by evaluating and characterizing your existing products and then make recommendations to improve your operations. This may involve recalibrating controls to ensure the line is running at optimal speed while maintaining the highest levels of performance and quality possible.
Quad Plus has the expertise in control systems and the process knowledge to help you with all of your metal processing requirements. Our proven experience will help you choose a lead (master) section, define tension zones, recognize and determine the need for drive control modes as ratio, draw, torque, or electric line shaft.
The slitting process allows large metal coils to be cut or slit into thinner coils. Quad Plus will design the controls on your machines to make the most precise and accurate cuts.
For certain applications, metal must be cut to specified lengths. Our engineering team will program and test your control systems to ensure exact cuts, each and every time.
Quad Plus professionals are skilled in controls for paint line applications. Having an ideal set of conditions such as line speed and viscosity, will result in high quality products that increase protection and prevent corrosion.
In Tube Mills, metal can be formed and welded into tubes and pipes, for both mechanical and structural uses. Our expert engineers have the skills to fine tune your equipment to provide proper diameter and clean edges, both inside and out.
The Quad Plus philosophy is high specification standards and high control standards. Our experts undergo specialized training to meet those expectations including Quad Plus techniques to understand metal processing. We have the in-depth knowledge of manufacturer settings and controls to correctly calculate tolerances and tension so the quality of the process is consistent regardless of the materials.
Quad Plus understands that machine speed and tension must be maintained when changing rolls. Our specialists have in-depth knowledge of feedback devices such as dancers, pendulums, load cells, and encoders to control the splice, speed, and tension. The result is better performance with the least amount of downtime.
Quad Plus offers a wide variety of services to assist you no matter where you are in the system integration lifecycle. For new builds, we offer design and project management services, for existing plants, we can make your operation run smoother and more efficient. For plants with obsolete control systems, we can assist with retrofits and upgrades. No matter your business need, we have you covered!
At Quad Plus, we understand that your priorities are efficiency and throughput. When you need the best system integrator for your metals plant, our team delivers accuracy and metal industry experience that you can rely on. Plus, our friendly support staff is always available from the earliest phases of your system integration project to years after completion.
