According to Toshiba Machine, it's one of the only robotics companies in the world that offers every type of robot--Cartesian, six axis and SCARA.

A-Tech provides manufacturing automation, quality control, product development and product testing – the building blocks needed to achieve the measurements a customer’s application requires. It serves several industries, including automotive manufacturing and research; aerospace research and production; power generation research; structures, buildings and bridges; biomechanics research; and rail and heavy machinery, which is why a partnership that offers a variety of robotic options is so important.

“One of the key things that drew us to TM Robotics wasn’t just the power of its comprehensive line of Toshiba Machine robots, it was the stellar technical support their team provided,” says David Wilkinson, operations manager at A-Tech. “We feel that the combination of what our two companies offer – from automation to support–is going to be fundamental to the success of the Toshiba Machine robot business in Canada, and we’re thrilled to be a key part of it.”

“Canada will play a big role in our expansion plans for North America, so we’re thrilled to finally have a driven team like A-Tech on board to sell our Toshiba Machine robots there,” says Nigel Smith, CEO of TM Robotics.
