Midwest Automation

Midwest Automation is a family-owned U.S. manufacturing company located in Minneapolis, Minnesota. For over 60 years, Midwest Automation has manufactured industrial machinery in the heartland of the USA for the woodworking, composite panel, and metalworking industries using U.S. labor and locally available components whenever possible.

If you're looking for an industrial machinery manufacturer with real application knowledge, we'd like to talk to you. Our extensive application knowledge, coupled with creative machine design, allows us to provide unique and reliable solutions that improve your manufacturing processes, while also supported by domestic parts and service.

We're "Midwest". Manufacturing results since 1959.

Midwest Automation entered the metal deburring and finishing markets through the acquisition of Randbright Corporation in 2002. The product line includes flat and centerless (cylindrical) deburring, finishing, edge rounding and polishing machines for both dry and wet applications, and a line of wet dust collectors to complete the product offerings.

Markets served:
Sheet Metal & Plate Fabrication, Tube & Pipe Manufactures, and Wet Dust Collection.

Midwest Automation entered the woodworking markets in the 1960s with the introduction of machines used for laminating and fabricating postformed kitchen countertops. The product line has expanded to include a wide variety of flat and 3D panel laminating machines using continuous roller presses and hydraulic platen presses for water base, liquid and hot melt polyurethane (PUR) adhesives developed through years of application experience and design innovations.

Markets served:
Architectural Millwork & Engineered Wood, Architectural & Residential Doors, Cabinets & Caseworks, Office Furniture, Store Fixture & Display

Since that time, Midwest engineered the product line to include hot melt polyurethane (PUR) flat panel laminating machines and systems for these increasingly important markets.

Standard & Modular

Midwest Automation has been designing and engineering industrial machines since 1959. Our extensive application knowledge gives us a unique advantage over other competitors.

We engineer machines that have common modular platforms, systems, and parts. This gives us the flexibility we need to increase the number of products and the speed we can bring them to the market. Creating modular systems also gives us the ability to develop common parts that reduce repair time and increase machine productivity.

Custom Engineered Systems

Midwest Automation has manufactured standard industrial machines and systems since 1959, however, we are sometimes asked to apply our engineering design knowledge to customers’ unique application requirements.

Working closely together as a team throughout this process, each project results in a custom machine or integrated system built for specific industrial applications.
