Custom Process Equipment and Systems Solutions

Project Assessment and Specification Development

Designing and building custom process equipment and integrated production systems is a discipline that starts with a well-crafted discovery process. Defining the desired performance and functionality and then converting it from an initial concept to an approved set of designs that meets functional, operational, safety and regulatory requirements is a unique capability that ACS offers.

Project Scope

ACS designed production lines and custom process equipment can incorporate a comprehensive range of hardware, custom control panels, mechanical handling systems, discrete part, batch or continuous process production equipment, in-line testing stations, as well as special fluid handling and air handling systems.

Multi-disciplinary Capabilities and Application Experience

Custom equipment and production system integration requires a lot of experience. Converting the specification that results from the discovery process into a finished piece of equipment or production system that meets will meet operational objectives requires a multi-disciplinary team with seasoned leadership. ACS engineers’ understanding application specific performance characteristics is a large part of the foundation that makes projects successful.

In-House Fabrication

Our custom process equipment design engineers and fabrication staff, including electricians, machinists and welders are experts at creating custom components that precisely meet recommended specifications and tolerances. Our 40,000sf. facility is staffed with engineering and production personnel who work side by side. The facility offers full machining capabilities, complete metal fabrication, space for equipment prototypes and facility mockups, software integration and a UL listed electrical and control panel build shop. This allows us to meet the schedule, budget and operational requirements of the most demanding applications. 

Operational Performance

Operational requirements, ergonomics as well as serviceability are taken into consideration for each custom process equipment design. All components are built to factory standards, fully documented and fabricated as if we were producing hundreds for the marketplace. ACS integrated production systems and custom process equipment are designed and built for easy maintenance and efficiency of repair, reducing downtime and costs for your production facility.

Training and Support

Having custom process equipment that meets all operational expectations inevitably requires solid support from the systems integration team that developed it. From its early days, ACS’ management team recognized that documentation, training and a well-crafted support plan were fundamental to custom equipment and integrated production systems. Our flexible delivery process recognizes this reality and makes it an integral component of every project. Superior delivery, start-up and ongoing training and support bring each project to a satisfactory conclusion.

It’s Not Done Until it Performs to Spec!

Total life-cycle performance results drive the majority of projects ACS undertakes. We understand that delivering a system is not the same as delivering performance. Our commitment to each client and every project we undertake is to deliver performance: and that is the real difference ACS makes.
