ACS Industrial Services’ Administrative Offices Moving

ACS Industrial's Offices Are Moving!As of Monday, October 3, 2011, ACS will be ready to rock in their new digs.  That’s right, ACS is pulling up their tent stakes, hitchin’ up the mules and moving…all of a half mile northeast!

The new offices will be more efficient and sunnier too.  More windows = even happier customer service!  You might even feel the sunshine pouring through the phone from wherever you are.

Never fear, there will be no disruption to your repair services.  Only ACS’s administrative offices are moving on Friday, September 30th so there should be minimal, if any, disruption to our phone and customer service systems.

Our shipping address, phone, email, fax, and PO Box numbers ALL stay the sameOur friendly customer service absolutely stays the same, only possibly even sunnier.

The only thing that changes is our street address which will now be:

ACS Industrial Services

9 Schilling Road, Suite 210

Hunt Valley, MD  21031

The wagon train starts rolling Friday afternoon.  The big question is, do I get to ride shotgun boss?

Zirconium, Niobium, Hafnium, Tantalum!

ACS Provides Repair Services for IndustryZirconium, niobium, hafnium, tantalum!  A magical spell?  No, just a list of exotic alloys used in the steel industry that are only a smidgen away from being “unobtainium”.  They are still fun to say even after having spent almost 20 years in the wonderful world of welding.

Speaking of unobtainium, magic spells, and the steel industry, did you know that as of September 10, 2011 domestic raw steel production is actually up 6.4% from the same time last year?  Pretty significant considering the amount of steel produced in the U.S. and the role steel plays in almost every facet of our lives.

The lion’s share of the steel produced goes to construction at 38%, distantly followed by  the automotive industry at 21%, machinery & equipment at 13%, then energy, defense-related, containers, appliances and others, in that order.  It’s not out of line to say that steel has changed the world like few other substances and that the industry is alive and well today while it evolves to meet today’s needs.

Many of our customers are busy forming, joining, rolling, casting,hammering, extruding, stamping, machining, welding, or bending steel for thousands of different uses.  And if they aren’t making something out of steel, you can bet their production equipment is made from steel.

It’s all good when that equipment is in working order, but it’s not so magical when production is stopped by damaged or defective equipment.  Did your plc fail?  Servo motor go bad? Drive alarming?

We complete repairs for Allen Bradley equipment to Okuma, to Yaskawa equipment and everything in between.  Let us get our technicians right on your damaged equipment and get them back to you fully tested and in perfect working order.

No fooling around, no nonsense and no magic spells (although sometimes it might see like magic!).  Just fast, expert industrial repair services for the most important part of our company – our customers!  Call our helpful customer service team at 800-605-6410 or go directly to our website at where you can request a free evaluation for your damaged equipment.

Long Live the Spirit of Freedom!

Long Live the Spirit of Freedom!My country, ’tis of Thee,
Sweet Land of Liberty
Of thee I sing;
Land  where my fathers died,
Land of the pilgrims’ pride,
From every mountain  side
Let Freedom ring.

Long Live the Spirit of Freedom everywhere!!

Help For Your Water Damaged Industrial Electronics

ACS Industrial Services For Expert Industrial Electronic RepairsRemember that blog I wrote just a short week ago following Hurricane Irene?  You know, the one where I said that our staff would be here come hell or high water to repair your damaged electronics?  Well, the high water has actually arrived and boy has it!  Tropical Storm Lee continues to dump away here on the East Coast and refuses to get the heck out of town.

While some of our staff lost power at home, and some of us were late getting to work this morning thanks to flooded roads, washed out bridges, and gridlocked traffic, we are in fact ALL here and servicing your repairs.

Water and electronics are not friends and are about as likely as Steelers and Ravens fans to make nice. So, if your best efforts to keep your industrial electronics cool and dry fail, do not despair.  Water damaged or overheated industrial electronics are often repairable.

Contact our always helpful customer service team if you think you might need power supply repairs, servo motor repairs, monitor repairs, servo drive repairs, circuit board repairs, or any other industrial electronic repairs.  We will be pleased to help you determine the reparability of your water-logged industrial electronics and get them back into service for you, quickly and efficiently.

You can reach us at 800-605-6419 or go directly to our website at for more information or to request and free evaluation for your damaged industrial electronics.

Question: When is a Blush Not Red and Not on Your Face?

Industrial Injection Mold Equipment Repair ServicesWhen is a blush not red and not the tell-tale sign of embarrassment?  When it’s a cosmetic blemish on a finished plastic part produced by injection mold equipment, that’s when.  You might recognize it as a whitish spot where the plastic is bent, deformed or stressed beyond the elasticity of the plastic material.  A blush is often seen at the point of injection on the finished part.

Of course, if you are one of our injection mold customers, you will already know this.  You will also know that it takes a lot of big equipment for injection or blow mold manufacturing.  It is also a really cool process to watch…at least it never fails to amaze me!

Not so cool, however, is when your equipment is damaged or defective and production is stopped.  Did your plc fail?  Drive break down?  Temperature controller go rogue?

We receive requests for motor repairs, servo drive repairs, plc repairs, temperature controller repairs, and encoder repairs from our mold manufacturing customers every day of the week.  Let us get our technicians right on these repairs and back to you fully tested and in perfect working order.

No fooling around and no blushing involved.  Just fast, expert industrial repair services for the most important part of our company – our customers!  Call our helpful customer service team at 800-605-6410 or go directly to our website at where you can request a free evaluation for your damaged equipment.
