Custom Designed Automation Equipment

Central Machines, Inc. designs and builds custom automation, testing and inspection assembly equipment. We provide turnkey operation from full engineering design, custom machine shop fabrication and manufacturing, assembly, wiring, programming, installation, and training and service. Our designs can be either continuous motion or Indexing; rotary or inline, depending on requirements. Customers can choose from either our existing standard chassis platforms or select to have a custom design best suited for their assembly application. Our core competencies include the design and build of high speed indexing dial assemblies, walking beam-type transfer systems, palletized transfer systems, cap closing machines, cap lining machines and continuous motion assembly machines.

Our automation equipment delivers both longevity and excellent repeatability due to our use of mechanical and servo driven motion. Complete construction of the machine is done in-house using a CAD/CAM integration of CNC and wire EDM machines, with our engineering AutoDesk Inventor design software. Our machine shop is outfitted with all the conventional and CNC equipment necessary to manufacture all of our equipment in-house.

Our machines are user friendly and easily programmable. The machines feature a color display touch screen panel as the primary interface. Using the touch screen, the equipment can be programmed to run multiple jobs. Operators need only to enter a part number into the touch screen of the machine, this will access its local data base to start producing the part.

We performance test, debug, and install all the equipment that we build. Our skilled personnel provide on-site maintenance and servicing support.

From each and every machine our customers can expect longevity and reliability due to our use of mechanical and servo driven motions. Our skilled work force is all under one roof, allowing for the complete construction, and product accountability, within our shop. We use both conventional and state of the art CAD/CAM and wire EDM machines to fabricate the components.
