At EPE (Engineered Production Equipment) we design and build custom machinery and custom automated systems. From table-top equipment and work-cells to entire turnkey systems, we provide targeted (application specific and product specific) solutions to fulfill our customer’s objectives.
At EPE we explore and consider the unique needs of every project. This is especially true for projects involving custom machinery and custom automated systems. We start by asking customers about their own feedback and experience for a given product or process being considered for automation. Then we merge those valuable customer insights with our engineering experience and expertise to determine, present and build a feasible and cost-effective solution.
EPE designs and build custom machinery and custom automated systems for a wide range of materials and processes involving Web Handling / Converting, Packaging / Pouching, Automated Assembly, and Material Handling.
Flexible Approaches To Machine Building:
We are flexible in our mode of operation and offer our expertise as needed:
Single-Machine Design and Build
Develop and build a highly specialized or non-existent prototype or production machine based on a current manual manufacturing operation or from just a concept.
Multiple-Machine Design and Build
Develop and build a highly specialized or non-existent prototype machine or station. Evaluate prototype project and build successive units without one-time or non-reoccurring engineering and manufacturing costs. In addition, provide efficient cost-of-build for successive unit by offering units on a lot basis.
Build-To-Print With Value Added Engineering
Build one or multiple machine from our customer’s existing design while providing enhancement prior to build and during the build if necessary. Enhancements are always properly documented whether we are working with digital or paper drawing-sets. Of course, we also provide Build-To-Print only services when customers have a stable design and looking to repeat what already works!
Machine Refurbishment With Value Added Engineering
Refurbish an existing machine/system based on customer needs. Refurbishment ranges in scale from simply refurbishing a substation or section of equipment to full machine overhaul. During machine refurbishment EPE can provide recommended enhancements prior to build and during the build if necessary. Enhancements are always properly documented whether we are working with digital or paper drawing-sets.
Machine Retrofits and Upgrades
Upgrade an existing machine/system based on customer needs. Whatever the reason (product change, aging equipment or controls system, safety or regulatory requirements) EPE can evaluate your current equipment and provide recommended enhancements prior to build and during the build if necessary. Enhancements are always properly documented whether we are working with digital or paper drawing-sets. Where possible, upgrades and retrofit projects are performed with minimal interruption of customer manufacturing operations.
