Plant and Facility Equipment

Plant and facility equipment refers to a broad range of equipment or machines used in manufacturing, assembly, and material handling and processing applications. The products in this category are designed to enhance plant efficiency, control, and organization.

Products like conveying systems, forklifts, and cranes efficiently transport materials, while clean rooms, dust collectors, and automation equipment provide exceptional quality and environmental control. Manufacturers can also keep their facilities clean and tidy with palletizers, balers, and cranes. Plant and facility equipment is utilized in industries like the pharmaceutical, petrochemical, automotive, semiconductor, electronics, telecommunications, and marine industries, but this kind of equipment can be utilized in almost any industry.


AGV Systems - Savant Automation, Inc.Automatic guided vehicles, or AGVs, are robotic transport units that use lasers or markers to navigate industrial facilities without human supervision.

These vehicles are primarily utilized in industrial settings as a means for material handling and transportation, but they also find use in military and clean room applications. For applications that involve heavy lifting or highly repetitive actions, automated guided vehicles provide an efficient and cost effective alternative to human labor, and since they are programmed to repeat the same task, AGVs also help reduce common problems associated with human error.

Assembly Machinery Manufacturers

Assembly Machinery – EriezAssembly machinery is a large category of machinery that encompasses all computerized machines used in the manufacturing industry.

One of the biggest perks to using these machines is the brief amount of human contact required to run one. Therefore, assembly machinery is more cost effective then a machining system that requires constant surveillance.

Assembly machinery is used in the production, assembly and packaging areas of the manufacturing industry. Assembly lines use automation equipment for all parts of making a product and getting it ready to ship, usually with a computerized machine for each step of production. Computer controlled machines are also referred to as CNC machines, specifically CNC manufacturing when they are programmed to produce sellable goods.
