Engineered Mechanical Systems

Connect, Transport, Guard, and Automate with Mechanical Systems Engineering

Engineered mechanical systems manage and coordinate the movement, positioning, and operation of mechanical components such as motors, actuators, and robotic arms. These systems enable precise controls to improve the safety, accuracy, and efficiency of manufacturing processes. When enabled by automated systems engineering, the benefits are tenfold.

ACS provides engineering design, fabrication, installation, and commissioning of mechanical equipment and systems for an individual piece of equipment for R&D or a complete assembly or production line. As a turnkey provider with in-house engineering design and fabrication capability, our design and manufacturing personnel work together to ensure all concepts meet specified requirements.

Backed by mechanical engineering design experience, we work to understand the core requirements of your application and implement creative, versatile innovations that future-proof your equipment for continued use or adaptation. Everything is tailored to your goals, operational requirements, and purchasing preferences. Our flexible delivery ensures any engineered mechanical systems integrate with existing facility systems, reducing set-up time and minimizing changes to existing infrastructure. When possible, ACS uses customer-preferred components and devices to adapt to customer processes, methods, documentation, and reporting requirements.

r&d technical center greenfield site

Because of our holistic approach, we don’t act simply as an equipment provider. Rather, we account for every integral element of the larger test or production ensemble. This includes frameworks, chassis, conveying, positioning, connecting, ducting, structural support, carts, pallets, and piping. The mechanical team works closely with controls engineers to ensure the final system will operate optimally in the R&D or production environment. Automated systems engineering driven by mechanical systems solutions can enhance various aspects of product development, testing, production, and assembly.

Applications include:

  • Bearings, valves, actuators, and motor test systems
  • Engine and vehicle R&D and production testing
  • Dynamometer driveline, riser, and guarding
  • Carts, pallets, receivers, test bed fixtures, and docking systems
  • Connections, harnessing, and boom arms
  • Test bed assemblies
  • Weigh system calibration and conditioning
  • Endurance, durability, and quality
  • Assembly quality verification
  • Pressure monitor testing
  • Assembly and manufacturing tooling
