Backed by 25+ Years of Experience


The key to our success is our commitment to solving our customers’ needs.

About 99 percent of our company’s products originated as an idea from one of you.

And for that, we are grateful.


We Were Small,
yet Ambitious.

We are deeply rooted in the field of double sheet detection, with a history that began long before our company inception. It began over 50 years ago through Hyde Park Electronics (which is now a part of Schneider Electric). In the fall of 1992, we got our official start when we spun off of Hyde Park Electronics.

Equipped with many years of experience in our field, our team set out on a mission. With our combined history and depth of understanding in double sheet detection, as well as our customer commitment, we began to grow.


The Prime Controls of Yesterday Is Far from What It Is Today.

Originally, Prime Controls focused on improving Hyde Park’s double sheet detection product line using the latest technology.

Today, Prime Controls is a leader in double sheet detection, providing products and services to the canmaking, automotive, appliance, and other metal-forming sectors.

We are the world’s supplier of double end and missing tab detectors for high-speed, easy-open end manufacturing lines for food and beverage cans. Nearly all of the cans in the world have been inspected by one of our products. The company is committed to developing and manufacturing high-quality metal sensors and controls with the best materials and the most advanced technology.


We Make Customer Service Our Top Priority and Will Be Available If You Have Any Problems.

You can expect to get a high-quality product that ships quickly. OEMs can expect to get a partner who will help you design systems to avoid any quality issues you foresee.
