MD Design For the Food Industry

Food Service

Because food products are sold in grocery stores and restaurants, ultimately consumed by the public, cleanliness and strict hygiene is critical to prevent bacterial contamination, meeting stringent FDA requirements. To process, transport, & store food and substances that are often corrosive safely while resisting pitting and cracking, stainless steel is often used in food processing. It is used extensively in the food processing industry for items such as tanks, piping, valves, pumps and heat exchangers.

Whether serving our local breweries and microbreweries, bakers of fine pretzels & baked goods, our dairy and cheese producers, or any other of the other world-class food processing plants across North America, we have the product, and product-specific knowledge, to help you choose the correct material, such as grade of stainless steel, to meet and exceed your needs.

MD Design For the Aerospace Industry


Precision is of the utmost importance in the Aerospace industry. A single imperfection or faulty component can cause thousands, if not millions of dollars in damage in addition to being a huge safety risk. We are dedicated to producing precision aerospace components machined to the highest accuracy for their specific application.

MD Design & Automation provides the Aerospace industry machining options for various assemblies and subassemblies. Our state-of-the-art programming software combined with our CNC machining expertise allows us to take large design files and disseminate them into smaller components. Using our advanced machining equipment, we create each individual part needed to complete the design. Lastly, we inspect the component to ensure it matches specifications and tolerances.

MD Design For the Mining Industry


Whether you sell equipment to move minerals or are in need of parts for equipment to do the drilling, we can design and manufacture a part to your exact specifications. We create repair/replacement parts for the mining industry, including drive shafts for mining and conveyor equipment. From our experienced machining capability, to our welding and fabrication technicians, the team at MD Design & Automation is available when you need us most. No matter what it takes, our team is committed to providing you with high-quality mining parts such as gears, shafts, and more. Our team will keep your team productive.

We develop components for customers both locally and across the United States, Canada, and Europe. Our Midwest location is ideal for shipping parts quickly to your work site or warehouse. Contact us to talk about your next project!
