Quality Servo Engineering, Repairs, Sales and Service since 1975
NC Servo Technology started in 1975 and has been providing quality service ever since.
Early on, we offered repairing, engineering and sales of servos and related industrial electronics for our local industry. Now, NC Servo Technology performs service worldwide and has the quality assurance to repair aircraft servos (FAA rating NSY2743K). The technical capabilities involved with the valve prototyping, reverse engineering, and repairing we provide, is second to none. With our continuously growing stock of over 17,000+ valves, 10,000+ electronics. We can offer updated replacements for obsolete units, as well as rebuilt and new units, providing a quick and cost-effective solution for our customer every time.
Meet Eddie Harmon, the Owner, and Engineer Behind NC Servo Technology
Eddie Harmon has always been a bit of a tinkerer. Born in Woodbury, TN, he loved to spend afternoons tinkering in his grandfather’s blacksmith shop. As a teen, he was selected to attend the #2 rated high school in the country, Cass Technical High School in Detroit, MI where he focused his studies on Electronics. After graduating in 1965, Eddie went on to work at Pegasus Laboratories, a servo valve manufacturer, until 1971. In addition to his work at Pegasus Laboratories, he served in the U.S. Army where he repaired Electro Hydraulics on the Nike Hercules Missile System. From there, Eddie attended Wayne State University, where he graduated in 1974 with a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics and Computer Science. While there, he also studied physics and mechanical engineering. It was this combined experience that leads Eddie to his passion for servos.
If you ask Eddie why he has a passion for servos, he’ll tell you, servo and proportional valves incorporate the sciences of hydraulics, electronics, magnetics and special materials, and the many diverse applications for servos make this an extremely interesting field.
After graduating from Wayne State University, Eddie went on to run the PSI Hydraulics servo lab from 1972-1975 and then moved on to start NC Servo Technology Corporation in 1975. In addition to launching his new company, Eddie’s love for this field led him into teaching servo hydraulics at the local community college and at the doctorate level for the University of Florida. In the 1990s, through NC Servo Technology, Eddie repaired aircraft avionics, radar, and instrumentation. Trying to get the government to save taxpayer money, however, was very stressful. So, these entities were sold off.Eddie also play in the national league 73 +baseball champion team.
Eddie continued to fire his desire in the servo industry while touring and training at most servo proportional manufacturers in the world. These manufacturers include Atchley, Atos, Bosch Germany, CNAE in China, Dowty UK, Moog USA, Moog UK, Moog Germany, Olsen, Parker, Pegasus, Proportional Air, Rexroth USA, Rexroth Germany, Schneider, Sundstrand, Vickers USA and Vickers Germany. Using this knowledge and experience, Eddie went on to design and update servo systems that typically included: autopilots for ships, weapon controls, as well as many industrial and mobile applications. NC Servo Technology is a certified FAA Repair Station NSY2743K. The OEM deliberately wrote the uh60 helicopter servo repair procedures to destroy the valve Eddie rewrote the test procedures for the government to prevent the valve from being destroyed.
