We are proud to provide engineering, quality, installation, and automation support services.




“R & D Engineering is a great automation and machine shop. I have been working with both Rick and Dave for about 10 years now and they continue to impress me with their ability to turn projects around quickly with a quality product that is second to none!”

Ben Ebert

“R&D Engineering is a fantastic vendor choice for anyone looking for innovative and unique custom machine builds. They exceeded my expectations by bringing a wealth of knowledge and unrivaled customer service through the concept, design, build, and implementation phase of my project. I highly recommend using R&D for your next custom machine project as you will be extremely happy with the results.”

Joe Kvam

“I have worked with Dave Erickson of R & D Engineering for over 20-years. They have come through for me on all kinds of innovative equipment and tooling. We have never found a job to small or too large for Dave and his team to work on. They have been a tremendous help in bringing Medical Technologies forward in the industry.”

Steve Berhow

“R & D Engineering has been my “go to” integrator for over 10 years across 4 different companies.   We have purchased custom and off-the-shelf machines to do many catheter-related processes, including vertical and horizontal lamination, balloon and catheter bonding,  balloon blowing, stent crimping, tube slitting and flaring, and many other custom processes.R & D has always separated themselves from the competition because of their strong ability to understand the needs of catheter development and the Manufacturing Engineer.  R & D can help the Engineer develop their user requirements from scratch.  This saves weeks or months in the development cycle. In the last 10 years, I do not remember one quality issue with a machine or tool.  I highly recommend R & D to all other industry associates.”
