Process Automation

Automation can improve safety and quality while saving time and money.  When combined with SCADA it provides YOU with a clear picture of what is happening in YOUR business.  Automation tools are more accessible than ever before — yet shifting gears and doing things differently is tough…but that is where we come in.

We started out in 1984 by automating processes in manufacturing.  Today we still provide services to manufacturing however the technology has gone beyond simply automating a process.  We now look holistically at the whole business and identify how to get maximum efficiency and return on your investment.

To achieve this we have a broad range of knowledge across key software and hardware vendors such as:

  • Rockwell Automation (Allen Bradley)

  • Siemens

  • Schneider

  • General Electric (GE)

  • Toshiba

  • Beckhoff

  • Kingfisher

  • Microsoft

  • Amazon Web Services (AWS)

Electrical Design

Virtually all automation projects that APCI undertake involve an Electrical Engineering & Design aspect.  APCI have successfully designed and built systems from simple ventilation systems to complex 80 multi-axis servo drive equipped Stage Shows such as Lion King and Miss Saigon.  All solutions often have a mixture of switchboards containing PLC Controls, drives (soft starters & VSD’s), HMI’s, Switchgear and networking equipment.

Switchboard Manufacture

APC Integration has an in house electrical workshop and switchboard building work-space where our boards are constructed.   We are able to build multiple concurrent switchboards up to 12m long which are commonly found in 40ft switch-room containers.  We can also fit-out and supply containerised switch rooms for cost-effective and rapid deployment to site.
Constructing our switchboards in-house produces higher quality workmanship and tighter controls on quality as well as facilitating the progression to the Electrical Testing and Factory Acceptance Testing phases of a project.
