Helping PING Revolutionizing the Golf

PING has revolutionised the golf equipment industry by utilizing modern computer and automation technology to achieve the highest levels of precision, performance, and quality in the design and manufacturing of their products. The latest generation club testing systems at PING were designed with ACS Motion Control solutions. The PING Man and PING Man Tee systems utilize the MC4U integrated control and drive solution, while the Shaft Fatigue test system uses SPiiPlusNTM motion and EtherCAT Controller and UDM drives.


”ACS Motion Control was an instrumental partner in our upgrade of the PING Man and PING Man Tee systems. The accuracy which we’re able to hold during testing has increased dramatically. The SPiiPlus MMI Application Studio is intuitive, logical, and was a snap to learn. The Scope and Watch tools, just to name a few, were vital during system installation. ACS’ highly knowledgeable and friendly Application Engineers helped us to quickly overcome issues during the development process. The modularity of the products has enabled us to consolidate dis-similar test systems (PING Man and Shaft Fatigue) under one motion control platform.  Two entirely different applications, one development tool (SPiiPlus MMI Application Studio), one language (ACSPL+), one very happy engineering team.”
