  • An excellent VSD training course with the right mix of theory and hands on programming. It was delivered at just the right level for myself and my maintenance engineers.

    Just a quick email to thank everyone for their efforts in making this project a success. After an amazingly smooth install the machine was producing paper within 50 minutes of handover and producing production paper within 4 hours. Target production for the first 3 days was 300 tonnes and we actually produced 314 tonnes. This has been one of the most successful start ups after a major shut for many years. Please forward my thanks to everyone involved in the project. I have been particularly impressed by how well all the contractors worked with each other, everyone working towards the common aim of making the equipment work.

    Andy the commissioning engineer was very good, explained what he was doing and how it works, very helpful. I will be using you again during this year as I have more inverters to install.

    Hello John,

    Just a quick email to say how impressed I was with the service we have received from Sam Mole. He has always been extremely keen to solve any problems we have faced, worked very well along side our ICA technician and has been a pleasure to have on site.


    Simon, Dec 16

    Hello John,

    I want to thank you immensely on your support on my VSD programming challenge. I finally got it working. I found one of the manuals that matches perfectly with the Drive and that led me to consider setting the drive to Default, so I defaulted it, did all the wiring connections and reprogrammed it and it worked it using AI2 for my Analogue input.


    Segun, Nov 16

    Hi Gary,

    Alan Nicol, Feb 16


    Just a quick email to thank Quantum for their efforts this week in the successful upgrade of the Fan Pump drives on our PM1 machine.

    The two installation crews worked like Trojans to install the equipment and without this level of commitment the project wouldn’t have been successful within the tight timescales.

    Rob worked well to understand both control system and successfully managed to commission the control systems for the drives. His efforts and late working yesterday were appreciated.

    I would also like to thank Billy and John specifically for their efforts and long working hours which made this project a success.

    We look forward to working with you on future drive projects.

    Jonathon Howarth, Nov 15

    Engineers on site were excellent. Very good knowledge and went above and beyond to ensure the factory was in a running state in the morning. They then returned to the factory in the morning to ensure the device was working correctly and as designed. Excellent experience throughout the entire journey here at Ibstock Brick. Would highly recommend to anyone.

    John Grew, Oct 15

    Sam Mole, the service engineer in question, was highly professional, knowledgeable and a subsequent credit to Quantum controls.

    The response of Quantum controls was second to none.

    Phil Berry, Oct 15

    Thanks for all your help today gents I don't think we could have asked for a better resolution given the circumstances. Please pass on my gratitude to the guys.

    Also moving forward I would appreciate it if you could keep me in the loop at every stage of the potential repair to the module(s). We will need to make a decision quickly should there be any question on viability Thanks

    Duncan, Oct 15

    Kevin - just wanted to say thanks for your guys' efforts today - Neil Keenan did a brilliant job to get us back online - much appreciated.

    Rob Hopkins, Lucite, Aug 15

    Can I just say thanks for the effort of John, Dan and particularly yourself over the weekend, we managed to get the plant running around 15:00 yesterday afternoon and back on this morning with no issues. Many thanks!

    David Quinn, Feb 15

    I wanted to thank you both for your input towards my project of last week After my initial moans you have come up trumps…the technical tradesmen you put on my site were extremely knowledgeable and any small hiccups were resolved without issue. A special thanks to Phil who worked from start to finish without stopping he arrived the evening before the install as was so organised that he took the time to visit the site so he was aware and prepared for  what required doing the following day and to also unload the control panel to acclimatise it overnight.


    Phil arrive early am on the install day and worked without even stopping for lunch to ensure the install was complete he was extremely knowledgeable and was professional at all times even when I had not got the cabling as it should have been, he worked with us to resolve the issue in a cost effective way. The whole experience from Sales with James, Technical with Neil  and the Team on the Tools is a credit to Quantum Controls I am excited to now get this Wood pellet Mill running and feel safe in its working and knowing it will archive me the very best financial savings as it will perform efficiently. A massive thanks to all that have helped us.
    Simon Gingell, Feb 15


    Amy Finn was excellent and really well organised & helpful, especially when last minutes changes to schedules were required. Sam Mole was excellent and did a great job on-site, he really knows his stuff and just did what he needed to do.
    Matt Dickens, Dec 14
    I would just like to say on behalf of the Plant Manager & Myself we could not have been happier with the service offered by yourselves yesterday. From my initial phone call, out of hours, yesterday morning. Up until the line was back running late last night the attitude, helpfulness & professionalism of everyone we dealt with, including yourself was different class. Alan (I don't remember his second name) who came to site and worked on the VSD was a credit to your business I hope I don’t have to do this again anytime soon (fingers crossed) but in the event of a breakdown I would not hesitate to use you guys again.
    Graeme Riches, Nov 2014
    Thanks a lot for a good responsiveness and excellent job from Billy.Great example of professional drive engineer.That’s the level of service we hope to get in the future from Quantum.
    Vaidas Petronis, Aug 2014
    Sam came to site today as arranged to fit the ABB inverter to Robot 2, it is running in a satisfactory manner, and it is operating a lot smoother than it has ever run. Sam has made a first rate job, could you please pass on my thanks.
    Andrew Baldry, May 2014
    Earlier this week we had a problem with the ABB main motor drive on our 1200 No4 press which was supported by your staff at Quantum. I would just like to take this opportunity to thank your staff for their excellent support in helping UPUK with this problem and achieving a quick temporary repair to get this machine back into production. In particular, I would like you to pass on my personal thanks to Alan Stewart and Billy Maitland. Through a difficult night, where it seemed that the gods were against us, their determination and doggedness shone through. It would have been easy for them to have given in, but they just kept on until we were back up and running. All of your staff, from the office to the engineers were great, I have nothing but admiration for them. They are a credit to themselves, you and your company. I very much look forward to working with Quantum in the future.
    Steve Wylie, March 2014
    The speed of response and rectification was outstanding, Couldnt have asked for more. Pricing was given as rental or purchase which gave us two ways to go. Very satisfied with the service.
    Peter Coull, September 2013
    I wanted to say a thank you to your staff, Neil in particular, for the assistance he provided yesterday with a hire drive we are using for a trial pump at an Anglian Water WRC. I had to change the hire unit settings to PID control and after talking with Neil and with the in depth knowledge he has, it meant this was carried out easily and quickly.

    Eldred Dixon, July 2013
    The engineers that attended site for the installation worked extremely well under very difficult conditions.They were helpful and very efficent.
    Kevin Gilholme, July 2013
    I would just like to give a huge thank you for a job well done. Your team worked like troopers and the job was carried out to our complete satisfaction and in less than 7 hours which is incredible. We have been back up and running for over an hour now and making money again. I still need your Siemens 'Expert' to have a look at our exsisting inverter. The repair cost/energy savings/cost of a new inverter calculation needs to be carefully evaluated.....
    Jamie O'Connor, June 2013
    Excellent, fast, friendly, no hassle service, no problems. Billy was fastidious.
    Andrew Parke, June 2013
    Thank you very much for all your hardwork. You really pulled me out of the mire and our customer is extremely happy with the control panel.
