Target Center Multipurpose Arena

Control Technology designed a new, custom control system for the facility to move the arena floor up and down to accommodate different events; the turn-key solution remedied motion control issues with the original system and allows the Target Center multiple revenue streams.

Control Technology designed the system and worked with an outside mechanical engineer firm who performed structural analyses of the arena.
