Founded in 1998, Automation Alternatives set a vision to offer quality, innovative technology that is also affordable.
Guided by its vision and supported by its talented engineering team, Automation Alternatives became known for offering unique and advanced innovative solutions for a variety of industries including printed electronics, medical devices, metalwork, process instrumentation and automotive, to name a few. Since 2001, Automation Alternatives added industrial laser processing equipment to its offerings, both as stand-alone standard systems and customized systems integrated into fully automated production lines. Laser processing equipment is now our main line of business and covers a wide range of technologies from infrared to ultraviolet (UV) and from continuous wave (CW) to ultra-fast lasers.
Automation Alternatives has been developing and manufacturing lasers for many years but our roots in engineering and design go back much further. The Automation Alternatives’ senior leadership team has a combined 150+ years of experience in the development and construction of manufacturing equipment.
Automation Alternatives has hundreds of installations worldwide, many of them in successful service for over a decade. Our solutions can be found in manufacturing facilities as far away as China, Singapore, Brazil or Costa Rica to those in our backyard in Toronto.
