At IPE we can provide custom equipment solutions that support a range of industries. We can provide one off equipment or quantity builds, low or high precision in small or large profiles. 

IPE can design the equipment from basic details provided by our clients or develop on an existing concept. By utilising a combination of specialist members and automated manufacturing we can provide high quality product within a fast turn around.

Material handling dollies

IPE specialise in material handling systems. We often provide unique equipment to maximise delivery process efficiency without compromise to part quality.

We can develop or accommodate multiple delivery methods that can improve cycle time or maximise the number of parts being transferred.

Here are a few examples of material handling dollies, conveying parts of all shapes and sizes. The parts are transferred manually or via mechanical docking.

Packing and cassettes

IPE has developed a range of cassette's, platens and packaging forms to support our customer needs.

Featured here are some highlights of our ability to not only provide a solution for our customers immediate needs but to also develop with longevity in mind.

Pictured left is an engine manufacturing line featuring a '3 variation engine platen' that IPE developed over 5 years ago. Even though these platens are constantly loaded every 2 minutes, day and night, they have provided a fault free solution since installation.

Pictured right, are light weight aluminium cassettes combined with high density foam to prevent part damage. Each design is unique to support the part being transported and the quantity required.
