Automation Division

We Provide Depth of
Automation Solutions

We are a leader in the design and integration of assembly and inspection robotics automation and a comprehensive line of secondary automation solutions to accompany our many dies and tools. These range from semi-automated cells to those incorporating complex robots.

Engineering is at the heart of every project we execute. With extensive and diverse combined experience in the design and build of automated assembly equipment, our engineering team knows the right questions to ask, how to properly create your project proposal, and then how to manage the project from concept to completion. We know that efficiency, quality, and cost are key to producing successful automated systems and inspection machinery. Our Mechanical Engineering Experience includes a diverse portfolio of manual and automated assembly workstations as well as synchronous and non-synchronous assembly systems. Stations and systems are designed in 3D using Solidworks™ with our engineers focusing on safety, function, maximum machine life, ease of maintenance, and accessibility.

Our Controls Engineering Experience includes a wide variety of hardware and software, networking devices with current industrial Ethernet communications protocols, and integration with higher-level data collection systems. By combining tried and true practices with the newest technology, Alpha creates a control system that is safe, reliable, and user friendly.

We’ve also developed solutions for trimming, drilling, welding, routing, bonding, quality inspection, to name just a few. We invite you to contact us regarding any of your upcoming secondary equipment needs and let us show you how the right people with the right experience can make the right equipment a reality.
