Special Purpose Machinery

Our special purpose machinery division works with manufacturers on small to medium sized automation projects, from bench-top checking/gauging fixtures to multiple 6 Axis robotic pick & place systems. Over the years, we have developed particular expertise working with plastic components including assembly, machining and finishing. In-mould labelling (IML) is a particular strength plus we also have over 30 years’ design expertise in leak testing machines.

All requirements to deliver a special purpose machinery project are carried out in-house, including concept design, 3D CAD in Solidworks, CNC machining, manufacturing (mechanical, electrical and programming), testing and commissioning. All materials and components meet  strict quality standards. Our strength is in our ability to assess and understand the needs of each project and client expectations and offer the best solution. Our focus is on designing special purpose machinery  that transforms ideas into reality resulting in enhanced productivity. Our team of innovative engineers is passionate about delivering the optimum solution and will work with you to understand your specific requirements, since you know your process best!

We work very closely with the automotive industry, which demands very high standards not only in terms of machine quality, but also in delivering on time. We have numerous clients whom we have worked with for many years, having built up our trust and reputation to ensure the right solution every time. We undertake projects with pneumatic applications using FESTO pneumatic components, unless otherwise specified and are the only Technical Distributor and Automation Partner of  Pneumatic & mechanical components manufacturer in West Yorkshire.
