Engineering

In many cases, AMH will sell its detailed schematics to a specific customer. The reason for this is economics. When companies are not budgeted to purchase production equipment, buying our engineering and producing it themselves becomes economical.

When we sell our engineering, it is a complete package. The package includes a bill of materials on auto-cad CD. It also includes detailed service and maintenance manuals, which contain all electrical, hydraulic and pneumatic information.

AMH will only sell engineering material and designs to companies that are going to build the product in-house. Companies must sign a Non-Disclosure (NDA) and Responsibility Acceptance Agreement (RAA).

Consulting and Design

AMH has designed hundreds of machines that have greatly improved the manufacturing capabilities of companies World Wide! AMH is an Industry Leader and Innovator, so don’t be fooled by cheap imitations that could possibly cost you more down the line. AMH designs machines that will fulfill your manufacturing needs quickly, and it will pay for itself 10 times over and continue to work. Our goal is to design a solution that is simple, effective, and user-friendly.

We also provide consulting to evaluate your current Production Systems, Processes, and Equipment. Sometimes companies need a fresh pair of eyes to provide a non-prejudiced evaluation and experience-backed recommendations.
