Turning the Corner in Asia

Looks like China and South Korea have turned the corner on NEW cases of the virus. That's what Social Distancing will do for us, too. Let's all get with the program.

Sanitize - Sanitize - Sanitize

Use hand sanitizer whenever you can. It's not a CURE, but it'll help if you contact the germs while you're out.

Did You Hear? We're Open For Business!

We can help. We're able to keep the wheels of the front lines turning. Call us at (301) 739-8285

Social Distancing

This is not some "pie in the sky" theory! This really works! Look at the results in China and South Korea. But EVERYONE has to participate. Beach goers bring the virus BACK to the folks that are fighting in the trenches and ruin everything we're trying to do. Get with the program, folks!

There's Hope!

We're in this together isn't just a slogan... it's a fact! We'll get through it but we've all got to do our part. Have Faith, and remember that "We're in this Together".

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.
