Automation Technical Services exists because of problems. Problems getting service on unsupported equipment, problems with manufacturing inefficiency, problems with automation reliability. The kinds of problems your company doesn’t want to deal with are the problems we solve.
The Future of ATS
Automation Technical Services continues to solve problems for Surface Mount Technology manufacturers, designing products that work with equipment from the top suppliers in the industry. Our goal is to make your company more profitable by removing roadblocks in SMT manufacturing.
In the early 2000s, founder Kelvin Wiley discovered an opportunity to solve a problem for manufacturers who were using Quad / Tyco Pick & Place machines, which at the time weren’t compatible with the newer 0201 components. Wiley was well familiar with the equipment, having previously been an Applications Engineer at Quad for seven years. He founded ATS and designed the SlimPro / Standard Pro Feeders, which became available in 2002, enabling SMT manufacturers to extend the life of their investment in the Quad / Tyco platform by making it compatible with 0201 components.
During the design phase of the SlimPro / Standard Pro Feeders, ATS also began servicing and reconditioning Speedline MPM / AccuFlex Printers, overhauling them and bringing these much-used pieces of SMT manufacturing equipment up to date and up to current standards.
