We constantly research new and better controls techniques, and our exposure to various materials processing industries provides insight into these various schemes. APS engineers design and manufacture the processing hardware and software that is required for a standard stand-alone power source, or for a complete vacuum casting machine system. Control panels take the APS components to the next level, machine systems. The APS approach utilizes basic building blocks for the standard machine components, and then expands these basic methodologies for more complex systems. This simplified approach to hardware and software selection enables our customers' to grow with us, and to challenge our methodologies in order to meet their requirements. It opens dialog between our customers, our suppliers, and our controls engineers. All required for a better operating system.
