Hello world!

31 October , 2009


I would like to introduce myself and my new company HIL CNC & Automation Services, LLC.  My name is Jim Carson and I previously worked with Siemens Energy & Automation for 12 + years.  I operated as a Senior Field Engineer specializing in Siemens CNC and PLC applications as applied to the Machine Tools Industry.  I have started my own CNC Field Service and Engineering Service business to provide this Expert level of service to customers directly.  I am very qualified to provide Excellent Service at competitive rates.

.  My credentials include the following:

  • Siemens CNC Expert – Factory trained in all of the high-end equipment
  • Sinumerik 840D Elite Specialist – Trained in Germany with extensive knowledge in 5-axis Transformations and CNC Machine Optimization
  • Sinumerik Expert – Able to handle multiple NCU systems for complex machines with drives in excess of 30 axes

As a Senior Field Engineer I have serviced over 1000 machine tools with superb results.  During this past year I have optimized over 20 CNC machines while taking these machines from not performing satisfactorily to a standard of excellence that was commended by Siemens’ own Drive Application Engineering Department.  All of the machines involved with were diagnosed and repaired quickly and efficiently.  Even when the issues were not directly related to the NC or drives, a clear path solution was provided to get machines up and running.

     I am ready to service your needs and am able to provide assistance for a wide variety of Siemens CNC, drive and PLC products.  I mainly specialize in the following equipment :

  1. Sinumerik 840C Systems                                 
  2. Sinumerik 840D Systems                                 
  3. Sinumerik 810D Systems                      
  4. Sinumerik 840Di Systems                                
  5. Sinumerik HMI and PCU 50 / 70 hardware and software
  6. Sinumerik 840Di Solution Line Systems
  7. Simodrive 611A, 611D and 611U Drive Systems
  8. Sinamics S120 Systems
  9. Simatic STEP 7 PLC Systems

My expertise covers Troubleshooting and Repair along with Engineering Services. The Engineering Services include Machine Startup, Machine and Drive Optimization, and Software updates for HMI, NCU, and PLC.


     Educational Seminars / Workshops on the above Siemens products are available.

     The Seminars and Workshops provided would cover primarily maintenance for the numerical control unit, the programmable logic controller and HMI.  This would provide maintenance technicians with the tools and knowledge to effectively troubleshoot their on-site machines.  They would be able to determine what the problem is and get the machine running quickly in most cases.  It is crucial to minimize machine downtime and have capable personnel on staff to keep their machines functioning properly.  The cost for this training will be quite competitive and it can be customized to the types of machine you have in your facilities.
