This is an example of an automated oil dispensing tank and pump system that was totally designed and built by A.R.&E. for a local manufacturer...

Generator Install

Here's what an emergency generator installation can look like when A.R.&E. is involved...


Sometimes it's necessary to "buildup" a metal surface that's been damaged by wear. Metalizing is one method of doing just that...


Total rewind of a customer's electric motor. Sometimes, though no one's fault, an electric motor "burns up." That's when our rewind department shines. Here's the technician is rewinding this small motor, and in a couple of hours it'll be "as good as, (or better than) new"...


Turkey and dressing is the classic dinner at this time of year. Thanksgiving Day is an annual national holiday in the United States and Canada celebrating the harvest and other blessings of the past year. The American tradition has us attempting to recreate the dinner between the Pilgrims and the Native Americans. However you celebrate, we at Apparatus Repair & Engineering, Inc. want to wish you all a Safe, Blessed and Happy Thanksgiving.

Control System Services

Motor controls and systems are key to operating any motor and/or process. And when problems show up, it's usually when you least expect them, and when you can least afford the downtime. We can help you with those problems. If it's a simple "diagnose and replace" situation, we may very well have the necessary component on our shelf. If it becomes more complex, like a PLC program that isn't doing what it's supposed to do, that's a different matter. But we can still FIX IT! Our technicians can troubleshoot the issue, and then, if the actual program is available, we can make any modification necessary to get you up and running properly again.

Apparatus Repair & Engineering, Inc. is an authorized distributor for Eaton Corporation (Cutler-Hammer) and in that capacity has a significant inventory of standard control items on the shelf for sale and replacement purposes. But in addition to Cutler-Hammer, we have a working relationship with other Industrial Control Distributors in the area, giving us access to Allen Bradley, Square D, ABB, GE, and others in the standard control line. When it comes to "specialty controls", we can also obtain DC and AC drives, servo motor and stepper controls, and specialized control products that you might have in your production lines. Our control technicians are trained and skilled in the programming of various PLC systems and we have the software and cables to interface with most of the systems in our market place.

Some control issues are very specialized and the fresh and waste water industry are two of those areas. The technicians at A.R.&E. are qualified to troubleshoot, diagnose and repair various bubbler systems and the numerous flow control and liquid level controls and sensors used in these plants. We've done  extensive work on SCADA systems as well as other factory automation processes. So don't become frustrated by a system that goes down with no warning signs and one that you have little or no experience troubleshooting. We're here to help... give is a call.
