Custom Machine Design

Custom Machine Design

IDE has experience designing custom one-of-kind machines tailored to a specific application or process.

Typically a client will have a need for a unique machine to perform in a laboratory or production environment. IDE will generate a specification or statement of work to define the operational goal of the machine. These custom machines are then designed, built, tested, and delivered to client companies.

A custom design example is shown below. The client wanted a means to automatically sew a label onto a complete sweatshirt as a means of customizing the garment. A design was created using pneumatic slides and grippers that were mounted to an electronic sewing machine. A PLC-based control system was designed to automate the label positioning and sewing operation.
