Custom Machines

Machine Design and Manufacturing

How do you take your machine concept and develop a fully functioning prototype or production machine? Unlike most machine design companies, EPIC houses a wide range of design, engineering, and fabrication experience under one roof. Whether you have a napkin drawing or a highly detailed machine spec, EPIC’s machine builder team can take your idea and make it work by using any combination of:

  • Conceptual design
  • Proof-of-concept testing
  • Prototype machine development
  • Pneumatic motion
  • Hydraulic motion
  • Electronic Motion
  • Data logging
  • Machine Automation

Selected Case Studies

Custom Machine Building & Fabrication of Prototype Interior Light Bar

Custom Light Bar Prototype

A major supplier of emergency lighting was looking for machine design companies and approached EPIC to engineer and manufacture custom light bars that would fit with engineered precision in the new squad cars being introduced into police departments.

Key Engineering Features: Precision fit convex curve light bar, OEM bracketing and fixturing, Light leakage design

Custom Machine Builder Increases Speed that F-18 can Launch MissilesMachine design for aerospace industry

Missiles released above Mach 1 speeds were unable to separate from fighter jets without destroying the aircraft. At speeds lower than Mach 1, enemy weaponry could locate and attack our fighter jets. The inability to launch missiles at high speeds put military personnel in danger.  EPIC Systems was the custom machine builder that allowed our nation’s pilots to deploy weaponry at high speeds approaching Mach 2.

Key Engineering Features: High pressure aluminum and fiberglass air tanks, Convergent/Divergent nozzle array, proof of concept test module
