What is A&C?
The company, A&C Automationssysteme & Consulting GmbH, was founded in 1979 as Leo Stadlmayr Electrical & Control Systems. We are a technical office that operates in the field of industrial plant automation and offers its services worldwide. We are active in a range of fields with a variety of automation systems and continually expand our offer portfolio.
A&C offers E/I&C services in the area of industrial plant automation, which extend from consulting and hard- and software engineering, to turnkey projects and networks, etc. ... Read more here
System and tool portfolio
Over the years, we have continually expanded our portfolio of systems and tools. You will find a related list here.
Apart from the services mentioned above, A&C also completes turnkey projects. These can involve multiple process control and server client systems for operations and data archiving, PLC-based machine controls and migrations, i.e. the exchange of existing controls ...
Experience shows that production machinery and processing plants frequently have longer life cycles than switchgear and control systems. New switchgear with the related automation can increase machine availability and reduce costs.
We are pleased to offer flat rate migrations for transport, filling, bagging and palletizing systems, as well as saws, sawmills and sorting machines ... Read more here
For us, the topic of networks relates to the stability and safety of automation systems (operational technology - OT), on the one hand from controls to the servers and on the other, from the servers to the operating stations. Moreover, in view of the fact that an increasing number of “external” accesses to the automation network such as data logging, office use and remote maintenance have become necessary...

Functional descriptions (written or verbal) serve as a basis for control applications, function plans and interlock diagrams, or existing control applications. A&C transcribes verbal, functional descriptions into written form, which are then presented to the customer or the operator for examination and approval. In the case of pure migration projects ...

At the beginning of a project, we deal with all the most important aspects of the plant planning during personal discussions with our customers. Owing to their experience our designers are able to think in interdisciplinary terms and therefore other areas of activity are also accounted for during detailed planning ... Read more here

Irrespective of whether pick and place, mounting, palletizing, stacking, part handling, packing, painting, welding or cutting are involved, robots have become a virtually indispensible part of production, logistics and laboratory work ... Read more here
Today, cameras constitute the "eyes" of automation. Machine vision encompasses technologies and methods that enable the image-based, automatic inspection and analysis of applications such as automatic quality control, process control and robot guidance... Read more here
A&C supports its customers during the entire duration of E/I&C, greenfield and brown field projects. We determine the current status of an existing plant and examine the required measures. We bring the documentation up to date and integrate it into modern document systems.
We assist our customers with the updating of their E/I&C plant standards and provide recommendations for a version in line with the state of art.
A&C draws up the documentation for E/I&C tenders for its customers and lays out the desired modification measures in advance. The customer thus has an excellent basis for the comparison of the offers received. In addition, the room for interpretation on the part of the bidders is restricted and thus subsequent demands for additional costs are counteracted from the outset.
A&C provides active support during contract negotiations, supplier selection and award discussions. Following order allocation, A&C assists project completion, the coordination between differing suppliers (definition, coordination and adherence to the interfaces between differing suppliers and trades), adherence and management of the project schedule and checks on project milestones.
A&C repeatedly receives customer inquiries about system training. Our approach in this regard envisages workshops with our customers and depending upon actual requirements (operators, maintenance personnel, administrators) and the system installed, we draw up training documentation and prepare a test set-up. This can take place at the customer’s premises using components that it supplies, or in A&C’s offices. From a cost perspective, we see workshops as a project and invoice according to actual expense, or if the training has been clearly defined, we also offer workshops at a flat rate. The calculation basis is always provided by A&C’s time expenditure and not the number of workshop participants.
As a result of the long-term experience of A&C and its personnel with regard to the realization of E/I&C hard- and software projects, we assist our customers throughout the entire course of project completion.
Today, cameras constitute the "eyes" of automation. Machine vision encompasses technologies and methods that enable the image-based, automatic inspection and analysis of applications such as automatic quality control, process control and robot guidance. Accordingly, imaging methods are steadily gaining in industrial importance and the vision market is growing.
AI-based vision systems employ deep learning, which is a machine teaching process. For example, artificial neural networks, algorithms, are modelled to detect
defects, undertake classifications or assess the (surface) quality of workpieces. The algorithms are trained using data and achieve self- improvement through trial and error, which results in a continuous increase in their ability to make their own predictions or decisions.
We design, build and supply camera and sensor-based inspection systems for your desired automation solution and are also pleased to provide consulting support for your project.
