Machine Automation & Equipment Control

ACS’ discrete automation solutions are designed to provide a common information and control platform to help you increase productivity, reduce costs and improve ease-of-use across your plant floor. Our scalable solutions are tailored to application-specific requirements and allow us to solve short-term production needs while providing a foundation for future solutions.

ACS works with many end users and original equipment manufacturers (OEM's) to develop custom automation controls and systems. The projects our team can undertake include completely new control systems, existing production line upgrades or interfacing legacy equipment control systems into new seamless integrated automation solutions.


Unified control, reporting and supervisory level visualization interfaces at the machine, work cell or assembly line level are particularly important to projects regardless of scope, and ACS’ team excels at architecting these production information and control interfaces. The best machine control/HMI solution to each application is developed by using proven automation systems and best practices architectures that provides reliable fault-tolerant operation.

Reporting Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) data with ACS-developed production management screens reduces complex production problems into a set of simple but intuitive presentation of important operational performance.

Production personnel safety is paramount - ACS's experience for all levels of safety categories/SIL levels are incorporated into each system to eliminate risk.

For all control systems integration projects, ACS acts as a single source of accountability; from definition of project objectives, hardware and software design specifications, to programming, hardware and electrical system design, panel fabrication and software development, all activities are coordinated by our seasoned project managers.
