Customized solutions for large-scale needs

What does this mean in concrete terms? Here’s an overview of some of the services we offer:

Tool design

To get the measure of our know-how, you need only entrust us with the manufacturing of your tools, including lifting or positioning tools or any other tool necessary for your optimal functioning and productivity! Design, machinery, welding, electrical, hydraulics or pneumatics, painting, quality control tests… Whether you come to our door with a plan, an idea, or a tool to replicate, we have the expertise and equipment to make your project a success.

Right from the quote stage, our team gets to work to outline the complete process to produce your tool, our manufacturing guide in other words. For you, this guide represents a guarantee of receiving a fair assessment every time. For us, it represents the certainty of having everything in hand to carry out your project in a well-thought-out way.


Do you need our help to design your tool? Whether your project is in the aeronautics, rail or a forward-looking field, the breadth of our engineers’ experience and creativity has prepared them to think as big as you do and move your project forward. Let us draft the technical specifications to create the solution that meets your needs.


Do you have a game plan in hand? That’s great! Our team of experienced machinists and welders will leverage the full potential of your project. First, your technical drawing will be studied carefully, and if necessary, we’ll propose some alternatives to simplify the design of your tool, or further promote its stress tolerance.

Reverse engineering

Have you been working for years with a proven tool, but the original design plans are no longer available? No problem. Our team has the necessary skills to reverse engineer it! By observing your tool in place, we can design it and improve it, if necessary.

Repair and maintenance

Our services also include the repair and maintenance of existing tools.

State-of-the-art equipment

Rainville’s machinery park houses an impressive array of state-of-the-art equipment that’s always meticulously calibrated. These include extremely precise CNC robots, a laser that can measure up to 100 feet in front of it to the nearest five thousandth, ovens to solidify and temper your parts so that they’re more resistant to wear and presses to perform load tests.

Our facilities also feature a liquid painting service. Also, for projects that don’t include this step, black oxide medium is used as needed to protect a part before assembly.

Certified work

Material certificates, treatment certificates, electrical certificates, CA, UL… Rainville also provides the assurance of certified work at all stages of tool production. And we take things one step further yet. Once a tool is completed, our team performs a complete inspection using portable and handheld CMM machines to certify that the measurements match the drawings. Strength tests are also performed to ensure that your tool will withstand four to five times the required weight.

For you, this guarantees you’ll receive a high-quality tool that fully matches the design and is completely safe. You’ll receive an inspection report, as well as all the certificates issued during production. Finally, a complete electronic report is permanently archived in our files and allows us to provide you with all the specifications and technical information related to your project whenever you need them.

Lifting equipment

It’s no coincidence that lifting equipment design and manufacturing is currently one of our most popular services. Over the years, Industries Rainville has developed a solid expertise in this field, and the biggest players in the aeronautics and rail industries frequently called on our services. Each solution manufactured within our walls is certified according to the safety standards in force.


Nearly a century of expertise in this field has prepared us to meet your hydraulic design challenges. No matter how complex and oversized your project may be, nothing is beyond the reach of our team, which will produce extremely precise custom-made cylinders for you.
