About Automec

Automec Inc., located in Waltham, Massachusetts, was founded in 1969 and incorporated in 1972. Automec manufactures and sells computerized gauging systems primarily for the Metal Fabrication Industry. Some of our gauging systems are also offered in the Wood and Fenestration Industries. The gauging systems attach to primary fabricating machines like press brakes, shears, saws and punches to increase operator productivity.

In 2014, Automec, Inc. became a certified O.E.M Supplier of Tigerstop, a leader in stop gauge and positioning systems for rapid, precise positioning of a vast array of material.     Automec leveraged its partnership to extend the power of precision cutting automation to its customers.   Automec now offers Tigerstop’s Saw Station Automation systems including TigerStop, SawGear, TigerRack and Heavy Duty 2.

Recognizing that Servo-electric press brakes are becoming the future in press brake technology, Automec became a Certified USA Dealer of CoastOne servo-electric press brakes in 2017.  Automec partnered with CoastOne, a private Finland based company, to provide sales and service for servo-electric press brakes to the American Market.  Through its expertise and position as a leader in retrofitting, Automec is advancing the use and popularity of servo-electric press brakes, helping CoastOne to penetrate the American market.

Our History

Automec, Inc. celebrated its 40th year in business as a small privately held manufacturer in 2012. Our 18 employees have been at Automec a combined total of more than 300 years. During this time our employees have amassed an incredibly amount of knowledge about both our products and their applicable industries.

This proud heritage translates into better service and support for our customers. In an environment of corporate takeovers, buyouts and foreign outsourcing Automec remains one of the few companies where you can still talk to the people that sold you the machine long after you purchased it.

We have emerged as an industry leader in retrofit with over four decades of successful product development experience and an installed based of over 10,000 systems both in the USA as well as in more than 20 countries abroad.

About our Products

All Automec systems consist of a dedicated control linked to an electro-mechanical gauging system. The operator programs a single position or a sequence of gauge positions at the control, then the gauge mechanism moves to those positions each time the primary machine cycles. The Automec system moves the gauge mechanism to the next position quickly and accurately to increase the operators productivity. This eliminates the manual setting of the gauge, which will dramatically reduce material handling during the manufacturing process.

The Automec systems are noted for their ease of programming, high reliability, and positioning accuracy.

All of our products are designed and manufactured exclusively in the USA
