Mechanical Engineering & Design

Optimation provides mechanical engineering services for a wide variety of process and discrete industries, with extensive experience in wet material handling and dry material handling. Our engineering staff is experienced in packaging systems for a wide variety of products, and has designed systems for all size items, from very small to very large.

Work with Optimation to get complete mechanical engineering support, through functional specification development, investigations, project management, documentation, startup and debug, and maintenance support. Complementing our engineering services, our skilled tradesmen provide fabrication, installation and maintenance on site.

Complete Process Design and Mechanical Design ServicesMechanical Engineering Heat Treating

Process design services include PFD and P&ID Development. A strength lies in implementing batch and continuous systems for liquid and solid materials. Work with our team in the early stages of your project, with conceptual design and engineering studies, project estimation and ROI business case development services. Use our team to help with your energy analysis and reduction / recovery needs, as well as general process analysis and recommendations with respect to quality, safety and efficiency. Contact our mechanical engineering team to develop functional specifications, assist with rapid prototyping and work cell organization for optimized work and material flow.

Glass Batch Engineering and Design

Our applied experience in machine design and build ranges from Glass Culletproviding single machine design discipline expertise to full turnkey solutions, from conceptual design to fabrication, assembly, testing, installation and maintenance. Optimation uses Autocad 2D and Autocad 3D, Intergraph, Inventor, Solidworks and Unigraphics.

Engineering Release Packages for Bids and Installation

We prepare construction and specification work (release) bid packages for both demolition and installation purposes, as well as on-site services to provide immediate follow-up while the project is in the installation phase.

Example Services:

  • Conceptual Design / Engineering Studies

Our team utilizes 3D modeling techniques to support a more accurate representation, interference detection, conceptual design visualization, and faster design reviews. Tools used include AutoCAD and SolidWorks. The 3D model is then available in support of additional engineering analysis, such as structural or vibration. The final design can be sliced into 2D vector-based representations.
