Universal Machinery Developments


Let’s get the job done! Here at UMD, we’ve recognized that every customer has very unique requirements.

Whether its information about “how to’s” or “what’s the best, strongest, fastest, cost effective, etc. way”, experience has guided us to adopt a strategy that serves you by implementing either leading edge research teams from academia and/or industry to simple hammer and tape measure tactics.

We communicate and correspond with our customers to bring them workable solutions, spending the time in brainstorming to understand the root issues and requirements with each unique project.

Our approaches to solutions assembles years of experience and culminates with expertise into quick, cost effective and novel methods at getting the job completed.

We have at our disposal a variety of engineering tools spanning diverse sectors of technology to aid in;

  • Design
  • Modeling
  • Analysis
  • Prototyping
  • Manufacturing and Fabrication (CNC)
  • Testing
  • And even the knowledge and capability to design and build new equipment as needed (projects link) which ultimately add to our already impressive repertoire process capabilities.


We strive to use all available “tools” through critical designs and innovative approaches to not only push the boundaries in available technologies but to also provide our customers with all the benefits of a modern, multifaceted, dedicated and driven team of individuals.
