Types of Industrial Equipment

At Reid Fabricators Inc., we have been working in the metal fabrication industry for over 30 years, and in that time, we have worked on many different types of industrial equipment. In this article, we will go over some of the main categories of industrial equipment we work on to help you get a better idea of what we can do for you.

  • Mixers – One of the main types of industrial equipment is mixers. Any time you need to combine two materials or ingredients, you will need a mixer to ensure the resulting product is mixed properly. Mixers are used frequently in the food production and pharmaceutical industries, but chemical, plastics, and adhesive manufacturers make heavy use of them as well.
  • Extruders – Extruders are a type of industrial equipment used to push a material through a die to give it a particular shape. These machines are used to make everything from pasta to synthetic fibers to animal feed pellets and more.
  • Welders – Industrial welders are used to fuse two pieces of metal together. These machines can be completely automated or be operated by a worker, and they are used to manufacture vehicles, tractors, and other industrial equipment.
  • Cutters – Another type of industrial equipment is cutters, which, naturally, are used to cut a material into pieces. Cutters can be used in everything from food production, where they do things like portion dough into smaller pieces, to metal fabrication, where they cut sheet metal to the right size, and many more applications.
