  • Coil Slitting Lines
  • Metal Blanking Lines
  • Strapping Lines

Technician Servicing a control panelAs well as being a highly specialized company in complex systems design and the assembly business, we also develop applications using PLC's. When requested, we will supply the customer with CAD drawings as a record of design support (i.e., fabrication and installation of control panels, operator stations, power/drive cabinets, drives-motors, servos, etc.). On-site commissioning is part of our full service.

Typical clients include companies or OEM's requiring expertise in manufacturing plants that need drive control systems and a specific control interface design operation (new or refurbished). IDS is willing to work with clients as either a new control systems equipment supplier or indirectly (e.g., a refurb consultant). Product repair and PM programs for in-place systems and drive-motor units are a major part of our growing service business, internationally.

In addition to designs utilizing our standard product lines (Eurotherm/SSD, Reliance, Benshaw), IDS's full service capabilities include providing training seminars for both new or existing equipment. With respect to on-site repairs or refurbishing of automation control systems, IDS is also experienced in Allen Bradley, Emerson, Saftronics, and Control Techniques. Our customer focus means competitive prices and guaranteed quality.

As further evidence of the expertise available at Industrial Drive Service Inc., since 1992 we have been designated as Ontario's prime, authorized Parker / SSD Drives (formerly Eurotherm) "Systems Integrator", Distribution & Repair Center. We are certified to ISO 9001:2015 and CSA standards.
