I don't use many PLC's but am a motion control engineer for a UK based
company. We design and build Panels, Pick and Place systems, all the way to
special purpose machines.
We mainly use Parker/Computmotor/Hauser/Digiplan but Yaskawa, Warner,
AllenBradley/Rockwell and others get a look in depending on the application.
I am also leaching lots of bits from stores for my 1st bot ; )
