AUTOMATED TESTING SYSTEMS

Custom Machine Design and Build for Unique Applications

Automation is not a luxury in today’s facilities but rather a strategic imperative to meet the demand of today’s marketplaces. As a custom machine builder, ACS has a unique opportunity to provide our customers with custom machine designs that can specifically address their automation goals for test and production. This means our clients achieve specialized solutions to meet their R&D testing and production goals while gaining a competitive advantage that can last and be continuously adapted and optimized to their needs both tomorrow and years from now.

Automated Machines and Systems for Testing

Automated mechanical equipment and integrated control systems have the power to minimize downtime, enhance safety, streamline processes, and accommodate future modifications and expansions. ACS excels in designing, engineering, building, and integrating custom machines for testing, assembly, material handling, inspection, packaging, and overall process automation. Merging expertise in machine design, controls, data acquisition, and process systems, we deliver custom, high-performance solutions that elevate operator safety, reduce maintenance intervals, and provide accurate data for improved product design and manufacturing processes. 

Whether delivering stand-alone machines for in-line or End-of-Line (EOL) tests or integrating new machines into fully automated assembly lines, our experience spans diverse markets. In every automation and controls project, we meticulously understand your unique requirements, ensuring the delivery of intuitive, flexible, and reliable mechanical, controls, and instrumentation systems. Our end-to-end process management includes designing and building mechanical and electrical systems, specifying instrumentation, creating control panels, programming PLC for operation and control, developing software for data acquisition and control, and seamless integration with existing systems.

Automation Drives Business Growth in Countless Applications

Automation drives business growth in countless applications, but blindly automating systems can do more harm than good. Strategic automation demands industry expertise that accounts for future-proofed technologies and processes. Most vitally, ACS identifies the current gaps in our clients’ production or R&D processes according to our industry expertise and then delivers custom-integrated machine and control solutions that address those gaps. Backed by a staff of engineers, 3D designers, programmers, and manufacturing personnel, our clients gain an extension to their production and engineering department to achieve a solution that meets exact specifications.  

Application examples include:

  • EOL production test stands
  • Stand-alone product development test machines
  • In-process test or inspection machines
  • Specialized mechanical and fluid systems for test
  • Stand-alone single station assembly machines
  • Multi-station assembly and test machines
  • Custom conveyors and material handling
  • Warranty/quality control stand-alone test rigs
  • Specialized control and data acquisition systems
  • Containerized assembly and test enclosures
  • Machine controls systems upgrades
