Design Layout and Equipment Consulting

Berks Plant Design & Maintenance, Inc. has been in the business of automated packaging systems and process systems for more than 30 years. Our approach has always been to focus on our customer's requirements and preferences. We then assist in implementation and integration of the machinery for optimal efficiency, always bearing in mind our customer's budget.

We utilize the latest technologies available to the market to meet our customers' needs, including AutoCAD Suite for line layout and facility based design and SolidWorks modeling for 3D applications.

Cutting edge controls work, including design, programming, and implementation of the entire family of Allen Bradley PLC’s, 1305 series to Powerflex VFD’s, Ultra and Kinetix series servo drives, DH+, DeviceNet, and ControlNet digital communications, and a full array of HMI systems.

Berks Plant Design and Maintenance, Inc. carries licensing for every piece of Allen Bradley/Rockwell software on the market. We also work with other vendors such as Siemens and Mitsubishi, as well as lower end systems such as Automation Direct.

Integrated systems supplied by BPDM have varied over the years from hand feed and repack 30 container per minute lines with no flow control to fully automated 700 container per minute lines with overflow accumulation, backlog sensing, and integrated PLC control. Our goal is for the layout and design of the system to minimize downtime and maximize production given the combination of equipment.

No matter how small scale the system may be, you can rest assured that we will tackle it with as much enthusiasm as the large scale, complex systems we also provide. We welcome as much customer feedback as possible throughout the entire process in order to ensure that customer receives exactly what they envision.

If you have an existing automated packaging system to upgrade and/or relocate, we will utilize your existing layout or produce one for you. Even when supplying a single piece of equipment, our goal is to make the retrofit of your existing production system as seamless as possible.

Installation of our largest scale systems is regularly performed in conjunction with existing, proven strategic partners to ensure a high quality, diverse, large group of technicians to complete your install and commission the project in a very timely manner. Call today to speak with a technician about your specific needs!

Packaging Machinery Parts: If you need machine parts in a hurry, BPDM is the place to go. You can nearly always purchase machine parts from us much more reasonably priced than what you would otherwise have to pay for the same part from an original equipment manufacturer. Please contact us to inquire about used parts, reconditioned parts, and custom machine parts.

At BPDM we maintain a robust combination of AutoCAD product design suite, SolidWorks Enterprise, as well as MasterCAM. We can produce just about any part to OEM tolerances or better at a lower cost, as long as we have the necessary information to do so. Call today to learn more and speak with a technician directly!
