Assembly solutions built for one product are expensive and can’t grow with a company as products evolve and change. At ATS Industrial Automation, we believe assembly systems should be modular and flexible to support multiple products to maximize utilization and capital investments.
With 45 years of automation and assembly experience, we deliver innovative, configurable, scalable, high-speed assembly systems designed to accommodate one or multiple products for optimal business value. Our customers can automate high-output assembly lines that exceed 1,000 parts per minute and can group two or more operations into a single station, saving floor space and costs.

Years Automation Experience
Every high-speed assembly project is unique. Allow us to listen to your challenges and share how automation can launch your project on time.
Our modular, high-speed, digital assembly solution is designed to be flexible and scalable. The system combines the best assembly technologies – robotics, cam-driven synchronous machines, and power-and-free asynchronous systems – for unparalleled performance. Symphoni is digitally configurable, making adjusting profiles and running different assembly sequences on the same system easy. Our customers can run the system 24/7 to assemble multiple products on the same shift.
Deliver more output per CAPEX dollar and unit floor space.
Get products to market faster with easily reconfigured assembly modules.
The system is not tied to one product, allowing companies to maintain high machine utilization as product lifecycles change.
A high level of standardization minimizes the cost of spare parts, maintenance, and training.
We design and deliver assembly systems that are configurable for a wide range of products, from simple two-piece assemblies to highly complex products with dozens of components and specialized processes. Our system scales to meet a product’s changing needs as it progresses through its life cycle – from low-volume samples to high-volume production.
Our system can be repeatedly retooled and reconfigured for new applications. This level of versatility results in higher utilization rates and higher TEEP (Total Effective Equipment Performance).
From health and beauty to household products and tools, many consumer products require high speed assembly, and testing. When margins are tight, manufacturers need efficient, flexible and reliable assembly solutions that minimize defects and production downtime.
We offer a range of solutions in plastic part and electrical component assembly, interconnect completion, precision tooling, and a several material handling variations. This may include winding systems, dispensing automation and various other process equipment. With assembly rates from 0.2 – 20 seconds per part, our systems deliver high throughput with the lowest number of defects. Our machines conserve capital and space while maintaining high equipment performance.
Thousands of cylindrical cells are required in EV or energy storage battery packs. During the assembly process, these cells must be tested and sorted by cell voltage to ensure battery performance. Our cylindrical cell test and sort systems are compact at under 1,200 sq ft and can process a high volume of cells. With production overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) levels of over 90%, our systems are both robust and efficient to support today’s cell assembly demands.
CPG brands can profitably reshore with agile, high-speed automation. Digital automation enables brands to reduce development time and time to market.

2022 saw 66 EV platforms launched, and will double by 2024. The battery design is increasingly essential to the platform’s success, yet design changes are happening much further in the development process. Cell, Module, and Pack Testing solutions must be fast and support different form factors within the same line. But too often, companies move serial to solve the various battery form factors and specs. Multiple lines are inefficient, with a significantly larger footprint.
Tackling the battery revolution while ensuring product quality is challenging. Battery testing is not as simple as just “testing a battery.” Form factors, design elements, and systems change – they’re not fixed in time, and EV is just one battery application. Battery testing extends to power, grid storage, and more.
It’s an exciting time to be involved in the electrification industry. Tackling the battery revolution, from design to manufacturing is not an easy task. Simply stacking batteries is not a model that can scale. There are form factors and design elements that are not fixed in time, presenting significant hurdles. A scalable, modular approach with the right partner is critical for success.
The past two years have severely strained the global supply chain. Short-term fixes are no longer enough; reshoring assembly is now viable and profitable. Consumer Packaged Goods brands can now control and meet regional demand with agile and digital high-speed assembly.
Manual operation for decommissioning and refurbishment projects is not ideal due to high exposure rates and compromised safety; innovation through automation is required. Automation is not only possible but dramatically reduces downtime.
Consumer and industrial products can be assembled in the USA. In this highly interactive presentation, you will learn how Symphoni™, a high-speed, flexible assembly platform, is ideal for fast-moving assembly of small parts. Using real examples, understand the benefits and trade-offs of using Symphoni™ vs. traditional high speed assembly approaches.
It’s an exciting time to be involved in the automotive manufacturing industry. A revolution of electrification is underway, but there is a growing hurdle for OEMs to meet capacity demand and manage the evolution of technology changes that are coinciding. Learn how ATS Industrial Automation continues to be the partner of choice for EV battery module assembly and testing.
EV Battery Modules are evolving at a rapid pace. Chemistry, packaging, welding, material handling, software, and more make managing and testing EV batteries complex. Efficient battery testing must also evolve to support the growing demand and technology advances. Flexibility, modularity must be built-in, and the industry approach to battery module testing needs to shift its approach dramatically.
