Application Engineering Inc’s core business is designing and manufacturing mechanical engineering side of engine test equipment. AEI holds the engine, fuels the engine, cools the engine and manages the driveline power out of the engine.

AEI takes on many unique projects from engine OEM to subcontractors needing something special that is out of their normal repertoire and we are always up for a good technical challenge.

AEI’s engineers use Solidworks 3D modeling software. The engineers then transfer the 3D models to SolidCAM software where the machinists make the cutter paths to run on the CNC machines. After machining AEI can facility getting the parts painted or metal finish, and then assemble and test at AEI South Haven facility. Be your own Program Manager for the project and use Application Engineering as your technical support team.

AEI has open machine time for either a one of a kind part or a small batch run.  AEI can machine to a print or facilitate a design and cut.  Along with the machining Application Engineering is open to small run contract manufacturing.  AEI will work with you!
