MPW’s Engineering and Fabrication services are dedicated to offering cutting-edge solutions to any industrial challenge. MPW has demonstrated its commitment to reducing and/or eliminating hazards by increasing the number of engineers and fabricators evaluating and constructing automated systems that minimize risk to field technicians.
Engineering & Fabrication Services
MPW offers a wide array of tooling and devices to handle numerous jobs in different industries. However, in the event that one of our tools can’t fulfill your needs, our engineering team will design custom tooling as needed. We can design modular tools that are easy to partially disassemble in order to bring into confined spaces, while still maintaining our standard safety features. We are also able to adapt our tools to fit available plant air, water sources, or other operating requirements.
We are capable of utilizing electrical, hydraulic, or pneumatic tooling as necessary to fit the needs of specific jobs. While our primary industrial cleaning agent is water, we also work with cryogenic (dry ice) blasting and sand blasting for environments where water is unsuitable.
Our engineering team’s primary concern when developing new tooling is operator safety. We strive to include various levels of automation into our machines in order to reduce potential operator error and to help improve ergonomics when working.
The electrical, mechanical, and other engineering teams work in close proximity to incorporate all the systems necessary for any given solution. Our electrical engineers use Autodesk’s well-known and powerful AutoCAD drawing tool to carefully lay-out electrical schematics and ensure both safety for personnel and efficiency for systems.
Our electrical systems are composed of products from market leaders in all areas, including Siemens and Rockwell Automation.
Our engineering team uses powerful computer tools in conjunction with experienced fabricators and machinists in our shop to meet the needs of any customer. Utilizing advanced 3D CAD modeling technology allows us to design and revise tools while accounting for multiple challenges in real time. The 3D view allows our engineers to account for design difficulties early in the process – issues that can be more serious later in the construction process, such as clearance problems, weight distribution, and flow restrictions.
The technical and detailed mechanical drawings provided to our fabrication staff (and, situationally, available to customers) are generated live based upon the most recent model of the tooling or process. This means that changes are incorporated in real-time, reducing the wait between a project being designed, and it being realized on the floor.
Our machinists work closely with engineers to ensure there are no communication issues from design to assembly, and they are available to adjust and improve tooling, as needed by our customers.
Need a custom solution for your process, but unsure of exactly what it is that you need? The same engineers who design and maintain our specialized tooling are available to visit your site to evaluate your situation and needs and recommend a solution. Whether it’s simply a case of applying one of our many existing tools to do our standard work, or a completely custom-tailored solution unique to your plant, our team can diagnose and prepare a suggested solution rapidly.
All of our tools and processes are carefully monitored through conception, implementation and execution to ensure a smooth delivery. Additionally, our more customized solutions are supervised even more stringently so we can react quickly to any unforeseen issues. Our experienced team is trained to troubleshoot problems, and work with our field service operators to overcome hurdles, such as premature part failure or additional undetected interference issues.
