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

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

The industry's first comprehensive Robot Integrator Program saves robot integrators significant time and cost investments by allowing them to mark each cell compliant with ANSI/RIA R15.06 with the TUV Rheinland Mark. As opposed to a traditional certification or an on-site field labeling, TÜV Rheinland's Robot Integrator Program certifies the knowledge and skill-set of robot integrators in addition to testing robotic cells and processes against ANSI/RIA R15.06. This reduces the need for frequent onsite or off site testing and allows manufacturers to apply a single TÜV Rheinland label to multiple cells. The Robot Integrator Program individually assesses a robot integrator's understanding of the ANSI/RIA R15.06 standard along with the ability to consistently produce compliant robot cells. Following the requirements and procedures of the new program will enable robot integrators to produce individually compliant robotic cells under one serialized TÜV Rheinland Mark, which meets the national electric code and allows acceptance by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) and end users.
