TECHNIC AUTOMATION S.A.S was created in 1988 and has been a part of the LEPTA Finance Group since 2004.
The group is made up of four companies:
– TECHNIC AUTOMATION S.A.S. (Annecy)
– TECHNIC AUTOMATION SUISSE S.A.R.L. (Geneva)
– ATIS S.A. (Cluses)
– ATIS Rom (Sibiu, Romania)
Specializing in the creation of special machines, the group has a turnover of 12 million euros and a staff of 80 people.
We deliver machines to Europe, America, and Asia.
Our clients range from small and medium sized companies to large groups in the manufacturing industry. The main business sectors are in the watchmaking, medical, cosmetics, and automotive industries. Our know-how has been implemented in all industrial sectors using automated, robotized, assembly or control procedures.
We engineer and manufacture turnkey machine solutions and work on every step of the project:
Pre-project planning, definition of technical solutions, costing
Electrical engineering and PLC programming
Assembly and wiring
Delivery, installation and commissioning
Warranty and customer service
Our project managers are your primary points of contact, and they make sure that the technical, financial and operational phases run smoothly. As soon as the project is launched, we commit to providing technical solutions that ensure the highest possible quality while always respecting deadlines.
Our organization was built upon five main cornerstones:
meticulous industrial project management
proven technical expertise in mechanics, automation, PLC programming, robotics and vision
a team of experienced professionals
quality of service and assistance, the advantage of an industrial partner who works with you, hand in hand
the continuous search for innovative ideas with the ability to tackle inherent technical challenges
Loaders for machine-tools and pressfit machines
Distribution of springs and screws
We offer a standard range of loading and packaging modules:
Flexible feeders with robot/vision
Controlled press-fitting with electric, hydraulic, and oleo-pneumatic presses
REMOVAL OF LIQUID/VISCOUS COMPONENTS
Manufacturing of customized nozzles or removal of beads using robots
CONTROL BY VISION
Lack of matter
Robots in drying chambers -40°C/+80°C
Computerization and data processing
OUR HISTORY IN ROBOTICS
Robotics is one of the founding components of our company. Our expertise started with the very beginnings of industrial robotics: our first Stäubli robot was installed in 1990.
For the past quarter of a century, our expertise has been growing with the technical evolutions made by robot manufacturers we sometimes assist during special developments
Integration of 6-axis, SCARA, and delta robots
Removal of beads (glue, grease, etc.)
High cadence pick & place
Loading machining tools and pressfit machines
Dynamic product pickup and laydown:
2D and 3D product localization
adjustment of products in the robot gripper (precise assembly, laser marking, etc.)
fixed or onboard cameras, multi-cameras
work several robots in a shared zone
transmission of inter-robot parts
parts flow management
stroke force control with curve plotting
special stacking algorithms for random parts
Vision processes are used in several types of applications:
reading barcodes and DataMatrix codes
Each application requires a scientific approach and a specific technical solution.
To respond to all applications, we mainly use Cognex equipment which offers a wide industrial range that is easily maintained:
Checker vision sensors for simple applications
In-Sight smart cameras for mid-complexity applications
Algorithms and programming based on VisionPro PC for complex applications
Our technicians and engineers have developed user-friendly interfaces and applications.
We provide official training, equipping you with the independence you need to develop and maintain your systems.
Today’s technology means we can implement reliable and flexible new processes by coupling robotics and vision. Technic Automation has developed standard robot guidance applications.
loading parts with complex-shapes
adjustment of parts before assembly, gluing, and screwing
Adjustment of parts incorrectly placed in their packaging (thermoformed trays or packing boards)
Parts repositioned directly in the robot gripper (example: adjustment before laser marking)
Our determination to offer turnkey systems has led us to regularly provide computer services that allow online management of our equipment in your factory network.
In order to implement this system, we provide—either in-house or in collaboration with our regular partner—specific developments that correspond to your needs:
on-line integration using factory ERP
data exchange and work order processing
SCIENTIFIC DATA PROCESSING
We develop specific applications, such as:
development of special algorithms for complex stacking
