SolidWorks Certified
Machine Example

Graybill's design department stands ready to help meet your needs for equipment design and build. Whether you have just a concept, some preliminary drawings, or even a complete machine or prior design you need altered or replicated, our design staff is experienced in making your idea become a reality.

We do this with a variety of tools including 2D and 3D Computer Aided Design. Using Solidworks and/or Bentley's Microstation CAD systems we can quickly turn around drawings to be manufactured in our shop. Three-D (3D) design is rapidly becoming the industry standard and GTD has been doing 3D modeling for many years.

Electrical design and PLC Programming are also performed by our talented design staff. We have the capabilities to work with several different PLC brands.

We can offer complete turn-key equipment.
