Custom machine engineering – made-to-measure solutions

By now, virtually all industries and business sectors have a significant demand for automation, in particular for automation solutions from plant and custom machine engineering (special purpose machinery engineering, fixture construction).

Because automation is the method of choice for meeting the challenges of globalized markets, reducing production costs and, at the same time, optimizing productivity, production time, and quality. And to do so successfully in the long run.

In line with this global trend towards rationalization and cost savings, both requirements and challenges will continue to rise steadily.

Combine this now with the fact that custom machines are increasingly less used as stand-alone solutions (independent or autonomous machines). Instead, it has become vital to integrate individual components or even entire assemblies flexibly and easily into more and more complex end-to-end systems.

Consequently, it is now more important than ever to look at custom machines as part of a highly complex overall process. In this context, it is essential to take into account the overall and superordinate design concept and then, in the next step, to integrate the comprehensive, technical functionality of the custom machine into this concept.

This oftentimes requires specialized solutions and a close cooperation of service providers and customers alike as well as a collaborative, intensive analysis of the overall situation.

24/7 reliability + productivity + premium performance =
YOUR lasting success

The esmo automation team of experts develops, designs, and installs automated machines, special purpose machinery, fixtures, and systems in the worldwide sector of custom machine engineering. Featuring state-of-the-art automation technology, they are individually, precisely, and optimally tailored to the requests and requirements of their international customer base.

Our objective: the automation of particular tasks, procedures, and work steps, precisely as per your requirements, specifications, and demands, to achieve a maximum of efficiency and profitability.

This way, we offer you the entire range of services within the framework of our core competencies – e.g. mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, automation technology (robotics, industrial image processing, control and drive engineering, laser marking), assembly technology, industrial engineering, software and programming.  Plus a full-service package which you may take advantage of as and when required. With us, you get everything from one single source. And that's what makes us the preferred partner for innovative, customized, cross-industry solutions.

During the conceptual design, development, installation, and commissioning of your custom machine, a contact person, responsible for the organization and realization of your project, will be assigned to you. And even after that we will always be available for technical questions, service and support concerns, and maintenance tasks, at your request.

Customized stand-alone or end-to-end solutions by esmo automation are employed in the most diverse sectors: our customer base includes international enterprises in the field of industrial manufacturing, including test engineering, from the automotive, automotive supply, consumer goods, and semiconductor industries among others.

What particular advantage does custom machine engineering have for my company?

With the automation of individual tasks and processes you will achieve maximum efficiency, highest quality, and best profitability at the lowest possible risk of personal injury and equipment damage.

Which processes can be automated in custom machine engineering?

Typical work steps that can be automated are, for example, transport, handling, assembly, inspection, and packaging of smallest to medium-sized parts/components.

Is a custom machine always a stand-alone solution?

No, not necessarily. A custom machine may be configured either as a stand-alone or as a system integration solution, and thus offers the ideal combination of standardization and individualization.

Which budget will be required for a custom machine?

The custom machine project will be designed and realized on the basis of your specifications and your budget requirements.

How quickly can a custom machine engineering project be realized?

The project period essentially depends on the complexity of the task. The project process includes the conceptual design, project planning, design engineering, assembly, and last but not least, the commissioning at your site.
