EPIQ Machinery Advanced Dynamics (AD)



Since 1965 Advanced Dynamics (AD) has provided and continues to provide its global customer base with world leading, innovative robust material handling solutions.  We focus on two main industries being pulp and paper and primary metals.


The pulp and paper group provides state of the art pulper feed systems which include industry leading bale de-wiring technology for kraft, wet lap and recycled bales.  At the other end of the paper making process, we provide fully automatic roll handling and wrapping systems from the winder to the warehouse.


The primary metals group brings forth handling solutions for aluminum carbon plants and cast houses. Our handling technology includes fully automated anode handling and cleaning systems, aluminum ingot and T-Bar handling and sawing systems and complete extrusion ingot homogenizing, sawing and packaging plants.


Whether you need a new system or upgrades to existing systems or simply individual pieces of equipment, we can help improve your company’s productivity.


To be competitive, we understand how important it is to optimize the resources. That is why at EPIQ MECFOR we aim to design and manufacture robust, reliable, and high-performance mobile equipment. We strive to constantly improve our equipment and, as much as possible, make it versatile and smart.
