Machinery Manufacturing Industry

Some important processes for the manufacture of machinery are forging, stamping, bending, forming, and machining that are used to shape individual pieces of metal. Processes, such as welding, soldering and assembling are used to join separate parts together. Although these processes are similar to those used in metal fabricating establishments, machinery manufacturing is different because it typically employs multiple metal forming processes in manufacturing the various parts of the machine. Moreover, complex assembly operations are an inherent part of the production process. Mega Depot offers a wide selection of materials, tools, and parts for machinery manufacturing as well as end products for use in further production for the best prices on the market!

Machinery and equipment manufacturing companies provide essential and highly sophisticated technology for many other manufacturing and service industries. Process control and other automation technologies enable end-users to maximize the productivity of their equipment. Sales of many types of machinery typically are accompanied by a variety of high-value services, including specialized architecture, engineering, and logistics.

Companies tend to specialize in producing machinery designed for particular applications, and this is reflected in the structure of the industry groups and industries. A broad distinction exists between general-purpose machinery (designed to be used in a variety of industrial applications, such as pumping or machining) and special-purpose machinery (designed to be used in a particular industry, such as agriculture or printing). The first three industry groups consist of establishments that produce special-purpose machinery. Companies that produce general-purpose machinery are classified in the remaining industry groups.

Products and Technologies

Major products are farm and construction machinery, metalworking and other manufacturing machinery, HVAC and commercial refrigeration equipment, and general-use machinery such as engines and pumps. While some products, such as tractors or heaters, are finished products, others, like motors, are components used in further production, and some, like textile looms, are custom-designed for a particular manufacturing process.

Thousands of U.S. companies manufacture machinery and equipment. Most are SMEs, but there are also many large firms and iconic American brands that do business on a global scale.
