Automation and Mechanical Design

Our Mechanical Design Engineers are highly skilled and have a wealth of experience, across many sectors of industry, designing Special Purpose Machinery using Software such as Solidworks 3D or AutoCad 2D.  We offer a design and detail service or a complete project including mechanical design and mechanical build.

If required finite element analysis (FEA) can be carried out on the design to ensure that the machine tools have the right static and dynamic performance while optimising mass and application of materials.

We have experience of the following industrial controls software:

Siemens Step 5, Step 7 and TIA Portal, Allen Bradley RS Logix 500 and 5000 series, Mitsubishi GX Developer or IEC Developer, Omron CX Programmer and various others.

Automation Manufacture

Our Purpose Built 14,000 sq. ft. Manufacturing Facility has separate Electrical Assembly and Toolmaking Facilities, allowing Electrical Control Systems and Special Purpose Machinery to be built in a clean environment.

Our specialist teams of mechanical engineers are fully supported by the electrical assembly team, incorporating panel build and machine wiring, to ensure a seamless build throughout the project.

Our assembly areas are large enough to accommodate full project assembly and production trials, ensuring complete satisfaction in terms of quality and performance.
