Product handling, line speed and equipment longevity depend on accurate mechanical integration and assembly. In the controlled environment of EPIC’s plant, your equipment is automated and integrated by skilled craftsmen, overseen by our packaging engineering team who follow simple, proven line engineering methods. Learn more about our mechanical integration and equipment automation capabilities below, or contact an engineer today.
Mechanically making your line fit together and transition to the right system is achieved through creative line design, various custom machine adjustments and simple line engineering methods. Mechanical integration addresses some of the following issues:
- Machinery deck heights
- Mechanical transitions between equipment
- Transition plates
- Conveyor widths
- Specific grade requirements
- Accumulation and uptime requirements
Clients are invited to visit EPIC to check on the quality and progress of their integrated production line.
Our skilled craftspeople work in EPIC’s state-of-the-art machine shop to assemble the final integrated production line. The same engineers who design the production line oversee the total assembly, including:
- Equipment receiving
- Machine and component inspection
- Project staging
- Part fabrication
- Machine and equipment assembly
- Structural fabrication
- Mechanical assembly
- Sheet metal fabrication
- Electrical wiring per NFPA National Electric Code
- Production line testing
Production line equipment is assembled according to FDA, ASME and AWS standards along with any client-imposed assembly conditions. Production lines are assembled in a modularized process to allow for easy transport from shop to site. EPIC’s quality assurance manual provides comprehensive quality control through all phases of production equipment assembly.
