Custom Automated Assembly and Process Machinery

Solara Automation’s customers come to us with a wide variety of goals, information and requirements for custom automated assembly and process machinery. Some provide very extensive RFP’s that define exactly how they envision a new automated cell. Others come to Solara with just a problem and a goal. Our reputation is built upon developing innovative solutions to every automation opportunity.

Our customer base represents products to be produced from dozens of parts per minute to hundreds of parts per minute. Our engineering team is resourceful and experienced enough to apply the appropriate level of automation to accomplish the goals.  We support customers in many markets, including Automotive, Electronics, Consumer, Life Sciences, Industrial, and others.

Once we understand your custom automated machinery challenge, our team will be prepared to design a solution that meets your company’s goals.
