Custom Engineering

Whether it’s a re-engineering a Sliding Block 2-speed motor to achieve a 20% increase in horsepower without increasing the shaft height, designing a new overload relay, or developing a water cooled 400HP / 600 volt motor that will continuously operate within a confined, unventilated environment…no two projects are alike.

When it comes to custom engineering, Ward Leonard specializes in:

  • Electrical, electromechanical, and mechanical solutions
  • Cutting edge motor, control and VFD equipment
  • Satisfying the Military’s toughest specs and certifications
  • Unique and small-volume projects
  • Advanced technologies that meet precision specifications and requirements
  • Accessible, customer facing engineering teams
