Engineering and Fabrication

When we engineer or fabricate custom material handling equipment, we keep our eyes on the big picture while also focusing on technical objectives, design reviews, schedule status, financial targets and, above all, customer satisfaction. We fully test the design and operation of your new system in a virtual environment before manufacturing it in the real world, ensuring maximum performance and saving you time and money.

We use three main tools during the engineering and fabrication phase:


Engineering Studies

By investigating your existing processes and exploring different configurations, we’re able to engineer the best custom solution.


Machine Simulations

We create realistic models of your proposed operation using real-world data, rates, speeds and the logic associated with handling products in order to ensure we are hitting the needed speeds and requirements.


Finite Element Analysis

For projects with large structural loads or precise handling requirements, we can test them virtually for the proper strength, rigidity or flexibility when loaded prior to final execution. This helps to reduce risks and confirm the overall capabilities.



Manufacturing Facility


Once we have your system designed, we can create it in our 50,000-square-foot lean manufacturing facility. We use state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques and strict quality control metrics to ensure robustness as well as superior fit and finish.

By demonstrating excellence for standardization and quality assurance in our manufacturing process and for our commitment to customer experience and satisfaction, Bastian Solutions’ custom automation division has achieved ISO 9001:2015 certification.

By responsibly managing the environmental impact of our manufacturing processes to improve our environmental performance and for our commitment to sustainability, Bastian Solutions’ custom automation division has achieved ISO 14001:2015 certification
