Control System Software Development Expertise

HMI Programming

HMI is short for Human Machine Interface. In an industrial setting, HMIs are what controls and monitors machines. From the HMI (typically a touch screen), operators are able to operate and monitor machines. HMIs require programming to allow your operator to interface with the machine. There are a variety of panels, and each uses different software. We work with leading HMIs and can recommend the right solution for your specific needs.

PLC Programming

A Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) is a ruggedized computer that is used in industrial automation. They are used to automate specific processes. As with HMIs, PLSs require specific programming expertise to ensure they're set up properly. PLCs and HMIs also need to be compatible with each other. You can rest assured that your solution from CMI Automation will be crafted and implemented by industry experts.

Robotics Programming

We are able to program many of the most popular robotics brands, including ABB, Fanuc, Kuka and Kawasaki.
