Product Assembly Services

From enclosed motor starters to VFDs and soft starts, we not only provide components … but complete packaged solutions. Van Meter will build systems to print, or design a solution that’s tailored to your project. When products are assembled for you, you reduce overhead and logistics costs since you no longer have to manage, track, and assemble all of the individual parts and pieces coming into your facility.

  • Single and 3-phase enclosed motor starters
  • Custom at-motor disconnects
  • Packaged soft starts
  • Enclosed variable frequency drives (VFDs)
  • Custom operator interface solutions
  • Termination and junction boxes
  • Pushbutton stations
  • Pneumatics control packages
  • Lighting and heater control panels
  • Cooling and ventilation solutions for motor control enclosures
  • Marshalling cabinets
  • Operator consoles

Enclosure Modification

Imagine how much time you’d save if Van Meter shipped fully assembled enclosures and server cabinets straight to you, eliminating the hassle of referencing several product numbers and making separate parts purchases – and then putting everything together once it all arrives.

Not only will you save time by having Van Meter complete the assembly, but product modification services let you place orders much faster with one part number vs. several.

When you receive a fully assembled enclosure from Van Meter, it includes:

  • Sidewall installation
  • Upgraded door handles
  • Print pocket additions
  • Plinth base installation
  • Holes for fans and filters
  • 19-inch rack-mounting rails
  • Console system assembly
  • System chassis installation
  • Back panels

Kitting and Logistic Services

Van Meter identifies products that can be bundled into customized kits so you receive the parts you need when you’re actually ready for them. This way, you don’t have to worry about products taking up valuable space, disappearing, breaking, or weakening due to weather exposure. Working with one purchase order and invoice per kit reduces paperwork, and custom labeling and packaging clearly identifies the kit’s contents and intended location. 

Wire Harnesses

Built to print or designed to your own specifications, our wire harnesses and assemblies streamline assembly and installation of individual components to save you time and improves productivity, reduces labor requirements, decreases material handling, and improves quality and consistency of wire harnesses and assemblies. With speed and accuracy, we can optimize, redesign, or create wire harness solutions for a variety of industries.
