Smalley produces UL-approved and CSA-approved control panels that exhibit the same high quality and attention to detail that customers have come to expect from Smalley’s conveyor products.
Comprehensive In-House Services
All design, engineering, and fabrication tasks required to produce Smalley control systems are performed in-house by our staff of degreed electrical engineers, electrical technicians, and craftsmen. Our conscientious staff enables Smalley to produce the very best control panels in-house.
Software design is accomplished using Rockwell Software and Siemens development tools. Complete electrical drawing packages are generated using AutoCad. Control elements are often “modeled” with AutoDesk Inventor as a part of the system layout. System documentation is provided to the Customer on CD or DVD media.
