Supply chain delays are increasing for many equipment and construction materials used in test facilities. There are some blind spots when trying to identify where your supply chain risk lies in your plan, it’s not just a matter of raw material shortage.
Worker safety is a top priority for most manufacturing companies and influences industrial equipment design. Protecting workers means providing proper training, adequate safety gear, and industrial machines designed to minimize the risk of injury. Testing equipment with rotating parts, high-pressure fluids, and combustible materials is inherently risky. Designing for safety is a top priority for ACS.
Designing custom industrial process equipment starts with a clear definition of what the customer needs. A comprehensive assessment evaluates what the customer is trying to accomplish. If there is existing equipment that can do most of the things the customer needs with a specialized adapter or custom attachment, it’s possible to modify something that’s off the shelf. In some cases, there’s nothing out there that can be easily modified, requiring custom fabrication solutions sourced from an industrial equipment manufacturer.
