Motion Control Systems

ARC Systems, Inc. engineering works closely with customers to define an optimal solution. We can work with either a modification of an existing design, a completely new design or integration with other system components. 

We have over fifty years of experience in electromechanical design. Our broad knowledge of motion control systems and a proven reputation for designing and manufacturing enables us to deliver high-performance solutions to many industries.

Motion control systems from ARC Systems, Inc. are robust and reliable devices that offer lasting operation under tough industrial conditions. Making all of the components ourselves enables us to control system integrity, quality, and component compatibility.

Our rotary actuators combine tried and tested mechanical and electromechanical components with digital control electronics. This combination forms intelligent electric actuators as modules for both military and commercial applications as well, as for integration into specialty packages.

In today's complex world, customers are often searching for fully integrated systems. We believe true integration requires collaboration between ARC's engineering and the customer’s project team. Once there is a full appreciation of the technological challenges, optimizing a resolution by means of proven knowledge is executed.

By selecting optional features, performance is tailored to the requirements of our customers. Our basic package includes the in-line arrangement of motors, tachometers, gear heads, and brakes. We can supply complete electromechanical actuation systems, with or without electronic control. We also offer integration of other manufacturers’ components into a design when it is both necessary and beneficial to our customers’ goals.

Customized Solutions

In an ever-changing world, conquering obstacles is fundamental to success. We have perfected our approach to overcoming unique challenges and developing systems that perform to the strictest standards and in the most extreme environments.

We design and manufacture custom AC induction and brushless DC motors. We can modify existing models to your specifications. These custom motors can be designed totally enclosed or open ventilated, CCW, CW, or for reversible rotation. ARC Systems offers various mounting options and shaft configurations to meet your needs. Optional housing material and finishes are available per your request.

High-Performance Potted Coils

Potting coil heads provide a sealed system for harsh environments. Our vacuum impregnation process ensures better environmental and mechanical protection by removing all air and moisture contaminates and filling all voids. Our product is designed and manufactured for ruggedness, which is able to withstand temperature extremes, vibration, shock, and many more environmental conditions. ARC Systems can also test these conditions when required.

Compact Electric Motors And Other Products 

Not all of today's obstacles include environmental conditions. Some of our most unyielding obstacles are motor size. ARC Systems has created compact motion control products for many years. We keep coil dimensions to a minimum allowing smaller housings and end bells.

When you need a compact motor that meets high-performance requirements, rely on us to deliver a solution.

Built-To-Print Capabilities

Customers often reach out to us when they have technical drawings and detailed specs for motors they can no longer purchase from the original source or that are no longer being offered for the original price.

Thanks to our experience and expertise, we can recreate all manner of motion control products from existing tech drawings. Once our team has reviewed all details, we provide a quote and can then get to work building a project to exact parameters. Our process is efficient, our prices are competitive, and the results will meet with precise specifications.   

Motors Designed And Built From Scratch

For customers who do not have technical drawings and detailed specs, ARC Systems’ team will create a design based on the required performance, operation, and other parameters of the product. A quote will be provided based on those details. After the purchase order is received, we will create and deliver technical drawings that detail all product specifics. If any changes or adjustments are required after the drawings are reviewed, they can be made at that point.

We aim to save our customers money wherever possible by using tooling, past lamination designs, and other resources that already suit customer specifics and will not incur any unnecessary costs. 

When prototyping and smaller quantities of products are required, we utilize our capabilities in a way that helps save time and money, keeping cost-per-unit totals as low as possible prior to full-scale production.

Replacement Electric Motors

Not all of our customers require one-of-kind, built-to-print, or custom motion control products; we can also efficiently deliver replacement electric motors from our diverse inventory. When a motor replacement or update is required for an urgent repair, such as a freight elevator, garage door, or other infrastructure systems, we can provide single or small quantities of motors for these critical applications. 

Our stock includes many products that are higher in quality and more reliable than commercial, off-the-shelf options. When you need a new motor but you’re unable to get a replacement or fast repair option from the OEM, contact us.
