IPS Design Center: Our Design Center specializes in incorporating Parker IPS Extruded Aluminum into your projects. We can assist with the initial design, CAD drawings, machining, assembly, and installation. 

Value Added Department: Our technicians handle a wide range of services centered around the design, build, and quality check of full automation assembilies.

Evaluations: Our engineers and product specialists can conduct evaluations and proof of concept testing for many Vision, Robotic, and Pneumatic applications. 

Training and Seminars: We host monthly trainings and seminars to help engineers and management better understand new products and how to leverage existing products. 

Technical Support: We offer technical support on-site, over the phone, and through training opportunities. 

Automation, Inc. specializes in custom solutions designed specifically for your application. By owning the solution in-house, our customers save time and money, both at the time of installation and as the solution ages.  However, if a turn-key integrated solution is what you are looking for, we can help you find a local integrator that would fit the job.
