Industrial Automation

BWM Industrial Automation offers a large range of projects and will supply you with turn-key equipment. We are familiar with all fields including automotive, food and drug, cosmetics, welding cells, robotics, material handling, surface coatings and finishing, etc.

Call us with your assembly or handling problems and we will supply you with solutions. We can build from plans and concepts supplied by you or we can generate the designs and drawings ourselves.  Fully engineered and stamped drawings are available.

Our turn-key projects supply the customer with a completely functional and installed machine. All design, machining, fabrication, pneumatic/hydraulic plumbing, electrical wiring and programming are done in house. We can even supply operator training and develop a maintenance program.

We currently staff mechanical designers, electricians, PLC programmers and a machine safety and guarding technician. We can tackle any project from small standalone assembly station to your full plant automation or retrofit your existing equipment.
