Custom Machine Design & Machine Builder
For companies requiring custom machine design and machine building, our highly skilled engineers and technicians can meet your exact needs – big or small.
Because of our expertise in machine safety, motion control and automation, and our extensive knowledge of leading parts manufacturers, we build machines that are safe, cost-effective and production ready.
As full-service machine builders, we work with you from a concept drawing to reality. Once your first machine is fully tested and approved by you, we will train your staff on its proper and safe use. We will also establish a maintenance schedule if required in order to ensure its optimal long-term function.
For companies that design and sell machinery and equipment, we can be your production partner for the long haul.

Below are examples of custom machines we have recently built:
Programmable Voltage Ramper:
The machine is used primarily in the electroplating industry. It is used to "ramp" the power up or down over time, according to the recipe. It features an Allen Bradley Micrologix 1100 PLC which is connected to a Red Lion HMI/Data Station. The Red Lion provides data logging, alarming, remote access, and protocol conversion.
Desiccant Winding Machine:
This machine uses Animatics Smart Motors to wind desiccant packs. It automated a process that was a manual operation, thus saving the customer time and money.
Pick & Place Part Sorting Machine:
This machine was used for lug nut orientation. It has the capacity to orientate 14 different style lug nuts. The cycle time to feed 2 lug nuts is 3 seconds.
Ultraviolet Rapid Disinfector:
This is a production machine that is being built for Steriliz LLC. This machine is primarily used in hospitals and nursing homes to "disinfect" patient rooms and operating rooms to kill all bacteria, virus, mold, fungus, etc. It also kills "superbugs" such as "C. Difficile".
Cauterization Wire Hipot Tester:
This machine tests medical cauterization wires to make sure they are electrically isolated. A hipot test checks for "good isolation." You do a hipot test by making sure no current will flow from one point to another point. In some ways a Hipot test is the opposite of a continuity test. Once the wire passes Hipot, we then do a continuity (resistance) test.
