Equipment Design and Customization

Each food processing facility has its own unique layouts, methods, and requirements. Our team of skilled engineers design and customize processing and handling sytems to suit your SOPs and requirements. From concept development to design, we ensure that every piece of equipment aligns with your processes, specifications, and safety standards. We can help you creatively navigate State restrictions and satisfy buyer audits much more easily.

Equipment Installation and Integration

Our services go beyond just equipment design. We take care of the entire installation process, ensuring seamless integration with your existing production line. Our technicians work efficiently to minimize downtime and disruption to daily operations so you can maintain the highest level of production possible.

Equipment Upgrades and Retrofits

We provide comprehensive equipment upgrade and retrofit solutions, for most dry bulk solids handling, processing, packaging, and inspection equipment, including X-ray. This can be done on one-off bases or for a system as a whole.

Our process engineers are intimately familiar with available technologies and can audit your existing equipment or system to identify areas for improvement. We then develop customized upgrade and retrofit plans that address these areas, incorporating the latest technologies and industry advancements.

Equipment upgrades can include enhancements such as improved automation, increased capacity, energy efficiency improvements, or advanced control systems. Retrofits involve replacing outdated components with newer, more efficient ones. We can also design custom transitions to fit newer equipment with older.

Common Reasons Custom Equipment is Needed

Equipment engineering and customization is necessary in virtually every full-scale food processing line on the planet. No two systems are exactly the same, and each has specific operational challenges and requirements. Here are some common examples of situations where custom equipment is needed:

Unique Manufacturing Method

Industries with specialized manufacturing processes may require custom equipment to accommodate unique product specifications or production requirements. Custom equipment ensures optimal performance and efficiency in these specialized operations.

Non-Standard Product Sizes or Shapes

When manufacturing products with non-standard sizes or shapes, custom equipment is necessary to handle these variations. Customization allows for precise handling and processing, ensuring consistent quality and minimizing waste.

Limited Space or Building Constraints

In facilities with limited space, off-the-shelf equipment may not fit or operate efficiently. Custom equipment can be designed to maximize space utilization and fit seamlessly within existing layouts, optimizing production capacity.

Impractical Regulations

Certain industries, such as pharmaceutical or food processing, have strict regulatory requirements. And in smaller municipalities where the applicable restrains were never made with your product in mind, compliance can be clunky. Custom equipment ensures compliance with these regulations, incorporating necessary features and controls to meet industry standards. In these situations, our creative engineers are a large value-add.

Unique Product Handling Requirements

Products with specific handling requirements, such as delicate materials or hazardous substances, may require custom equipment to bring equipment with the other features you need into alignment.
