A&P Tool Rebrands Itself as APT Manufacturing Solutions

APT Manufacturing Solutions’ diverse business is unique in the industry and allows us to serve customers through two complimentary divisions, Machining and Automation.

On January 1, 2015, A&P Tool rebranded itself as APT Manufacturing Solutions. A company of 20 years doing work in the manufacturing sector is focusing its vision on assisting manufacturers overcome obstacles to everyday problems.


"Over the years, we've realized that we are no longer a "tool" company, but rather a solutions provider to the manufacturing industry. Our new brand embodies the fact that manufacturers have obstacles to overcome, and we can help. Our deep and diverse engineering and manufacturing expertise allows us to make your business stronger, from manual machining all the way to robot automation. It's important to know that this new brand is not the result of a buyout or any other significant change that would impact the values that A&P Tool has stood by for years. We are the same great company, with the same great people, operating at the same degree of excellence as we always have. We just want to make sure our name aligns with who we truly are - and we're excited to be the solution to your manufacturing needs for years to come," Anthony R. Nighswander - President

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
