Technology integration

Our experience in delivering manufacturing solutions includes integration of many types of technology and their developments over time. Some of the technologies commonly used in our systems include:

  • Ultrasonic Welding
  • Dispensing
  • Part Feeding
  • Ovens/Curing
  • Surface Treatment
  • Printing and Labeling
  • Pressing
  • Molding

Ultrasonic Welding

We have extensive experience with ultrasonic welders as a large number of our systems incorporate this technology.

Dispensing

We have experience dispensing a wide variety of products, everything from low viscosity adhesives to high viscosity pastes and greases. The types of technology include:

  • Positive displacement dispense
  • Time-pressure dispense
  • Peristaltic pump dispense
  • Piezo-electric dispense
  • Spray Coating
  • Pin transfer
  • Capillary transfer

Part Feeding

We have extensive experience integrating third party feeders as well as developing our own. Typical part feeding technology includes:

  • Bowl feeder
  • Step feeder
  • Blow feed
  • Vibratory inline
  • Escapement
  • Tray handler

Ovens/Curing

Applications include continuous feed or batch processing and use a variety of technologies including:

  • UV
  • IR
  • Convection
  • High velocity air
  • Radiant

Surface Treatment

Critical surfaces are often treated with corona or plasma to improve bonding of inks, coatings and adhesives. These systems have been integrated in discrete processing as well as continuous web systems.

Printing and Labeling

Most life science products require some sort of identification and lot/expiry information. We can provide many different ways of supporting this, whether it’s applying pre-printed labels, online print and apply, laser marking, or ink jet printing—we’ve done it all.

Pressing

The pressing applications we use range from multi-ton hydraulic presses, simple pneumatic presses to highly controllable servo pressing units

Molding

ATS has developed and integrated complex molds with in-cavity sensing to confirm correct processes, adjust viscosity, balance cavities, and reject parts at mold opening. High cavitation, runner/gate technology, mold-side automation for overmolding, inspection, assembly and packaging are some of the injection molding related activities with which we have experience.

Custom technology solutions

We have developed relationships with best-in-class suppliers across virtually all technologies. 

We've also developed our own technology when the requirements fall outside of commercial offerings.

Customer Benefits

We work very closely with our supplier partners and can work with you to develop your process and find the right technology for your application.
