What We Do
Custom Control Systems
APT provides custom electrical controls for a wide range of equipment. Our designs are based solely on the customer’s needs; we do not have a stock product line. Our custom control systems have covered a wide range of applications from the control of one motor to large systems controlling almost 400 motors on one machine.
Custom Mechanical Integration
APT provides all of the mechanical engineering services required to integrate our controls into your existing equipment. Small stand-alone mechanical engineering projects are also within our capabilities. We are one of the few system suppliers that offer single-source project responsibility.
Commercially available equipment may not always meet your needs. APT is a custom engineering house and can build or modify equipment to meet your specific needs.
APT provides electrical control system repair services for the full range of equipment used in the printing industry. Typical repairs involve equipment with a sheet/web width of 40” or more. We have made repairs ranging in size from simple replacement of fuses on a load turner to replacing the main motor and its power supply on a large sheetfed printing press. Our current rate sheet is available on request.
APT provides project management services for major projects in your plant. We coordinate work from various vendors and internal trades people. This allows you to concentrate on your day-to day business while we handle side projects such as equipment relocations, modifications, overhauls, and startups.
APT has extensive experience in process control in a wide variety of industries. We can help you determine how to control your process, the data you should collect, and define the optimum operating parameters.
APT offers consulting services to help you determine the most economical solution for your equipment and process problems. If you have a problem but don't know the best way to solve it, this is the best place to start. We will work with you to determine the most cost-effective approach to meet your specific needs.
During our quotation process, we work with the customer to define an accurate, measurable scope for the project and establish appropriate options. In our experience, most customers know exactly what they want to accomplish, but struggle with efficiently developing a cost effective solution.
All APT designs are created with similar goals:
