The Bent River Machine Engineering Department

“Engineering is the art of organizing and directing men and controlling the forces and materials of nature for the benefit of the human race.” Henry G. Scott.

In the last two centuries the field engineering has invented technologies that have greatly improved not only the standard of living but advanced our societies immensely. In 1893 Charles and Frank Duryea invented the first gas powered automobile; in 1834 Jacob Perkins invented the first practical refrigerator using a vapor compression cycle, to name just two examples of a nearly infinite list of engineering marvels. There is no doubt that engineering is responsible for our great technologies and many of the benefits we enjoy today.


At Bent River Machine we are very proud to be able to contribute to the great field of engineering through our excellent engineering department.

The Bent River Machine engineering department begins our manufacturing process by coming up with creative ideas and concepts for proposals tailored to meet our customers’ exact needs. After the customer accepts the proposal, the engineering department designs the equipment, which is completely distinctive to each project. Our engineering department is skilled in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, controls/software engineering, and the generation of technical documentation such as technical manuals and service manuals.

Our engineering department is large enough to competently handle sophisticated projects, yet small enough to be very responsive to our customer’s needs. Five qualified engineers make up our engineering department, specializing in coming up with innovative, cost effective, custom equipment for each of our individual projects. In Bent River Machine’s specialization of custom factory automation our team focuses on our customer’s requests to insure that they end up with the best solution possible, versus selling standard equipment that is not ideal for our customers.

The Bent River Engineering team is proud to be an Allen Bradley Control Systems partner. All of our mechanical designs are done in ProEngineer, and we use Radica Electra to generate all of our schematics.

If you have any questions for our engineers please take advantage of our Ask an Engineer Service.

Let our engineering department help you bring your ideas to life, and maybe, we can reinvent the world together.
