This is an exciting time for our company! As of 2019-05-13 Advanced Design Consulting USA, Inc. (ADC USA, Inc.) has been acquired by Added Value Solutions (AVS). This merger of our two organizations adds value and strength to our internal teams and external business partners.
On Thursday, January 17, 2019, CHESS Director Joel Brock "pushed the button" that turned the beam back on in the synchrotron. ADC and Cornell University have been working together on the upgrade project, called CHESS-U, since 2016.
On September 26, NIST posted an article to their website, detailing the importance of VSANS (designed and manufactured by ADC), and how it will aide in research.
ADC has completed design, manufacturing, assembly/testing and installation of a linear actuator and attendant controller for NIST Nuclear Reactor’s Graphite Regulating.
ADC has completed the design, manufacturing, and assembly of 3 identical Front-End Beamlines to Cornell University’s High Energy Synchrotron Source (CHESS).
ADC is one of over twenty companies that received contracts to design and build equipment for this upgrade.
The first hutch ADC delivered for CHESS-U, ID1A3, saw first light on January 31, 2018, only ten months after the contract was signed to pre-fabricate the hutch enclosures.
