Custom Machine Design

Each of our engineers brings special knowledge, expertise, and training to the job. They are expert at interpreting engineering research and formulating original concepts. Their skillful handling of engineering and design principles produces a functional design that balances quality, performance, maintenance and economics. Our services include machine design and system controls, systems integration, fabrication, installation, start-up, process improvement and field support.

Our controls group works closely with our mechanical engineers from the initial planning stage through each phase of the entire project. They bring a wealth of experience that incorporates standardization of components and systems including: PLC and PC based control systems, as well as servos and servo controllers from a variety of suppliers.

Our experience in machine design and control systems, include the following industries and machinery:

“In the Global Product Innovation group at O-I, we commissioned Palmer Associates to develop a test instrument that would allow us to quantify product innovation. The team at Palmer worked with us to define a scope and list of critical deliverables that would meet the needs of the project, but we had a hardware/software prerequisite we wanted to incorporate into the instrument. Palmer had no previous experience with our choice of HW/SW, but embraced the challenge. Marv and his team at Palmer were creative and persistent through the invention and concept phase; swift and efficient through the execution phase and comprehensive through the validation phase. The project is now complete, patents are pending and customers of O-I are engaged with this new capability thanks, in large part, to the team at Palmer.”
