Epsilon Engineering Ltd was formed in 1989 by Graeme Leno.
Graeme comes from a food production background with Cadbury Schweppes plc … the company he joined after completing post graduate studies in Production Methods and Management (ACPMM) at Cambridge. He founded Epsilon after recognising the need for professional help in UK ‘factory led’ projects where the capital expenditure did not warrant, or indeed did not even interest, any major UK engineering contracting companies. The service offered is therefore very personal, with good communication and correct and honest advice to the customer. The company has undertaken a variety of projects in robotics automation technology, development work on applied vibration and in powder handling, and manufacture of semi-automatic and fully automatic pre-glued sleeve erectors and loaders for the chilled food sector.
Clients Include …
Cadbury Trebor Bassett; Knauf UK; Proctor and Gamble; Marley Roofing Products; Campbells Frozen Foods; Four Square (a division of Mars UK); Best Foods (a division of Unilever) and many more …
Robotics automation technology.
The drive to reduce UK manufacturing costs has increased the demand for robotics automation technology projects which are now the main focus for Epsilon Engineering. Since 2005, we have successfully completed a number of these projects in the Midlands, Kent and elswhere using ABB 640, 4400 and 340 robots and Kawasaki ZD130 robots. Typically these have been for pick and place, carton loading and palletising applications in the confectionery and plasterboard industries.
All robotics automation technology cells are built up and tested for customer acceptance at our works in Sittingbourne, Kent, prior to installation and final commissioning on site. All mechanical design work is completed using 3D solid modelling based upon the ubiquitous Solidworks software and all electrical design work is undertaken using RS Wire.
Links with other companies
Our work since 1989 has brought us into contact with many engineering supply companies. We use a network of companies to help us build, test and install machinery. We can therefore guide and assist our clients with placing orders for component manufacture with CNC machining shops. These include frame and structure elements from sheet metal and fabrication shops, and for electrical control and distribution panels from quality assured electrical contractors.
