South Carolina-based material handling specialist Automation Engineering Company (AEC) announces plans to expand its portfolio of machine tool tending offerings as an official distributor for the HALTER LoadAssistant from HALTER CNC Robotics.

Designed to automate the repetitive tasks of loading and unloading any CNC machine, the HALTER
LoadAssistant immediately increases customer profitability with higher production output and efficiency. It requires no robot knowledge to operate the machine. AEC can have the system operational at a customer’s facility, including training employees, in less than one day after delivery.

The HALTER LoadAssistant product line includes the Universal 20, Universal 35, Stacker 180 and
Stacker 230. Specifically designed for small and medium-sized enterprises, these packages offer
affordable automation solutions for both production and job shops.

“Automation Engineering and HALTER make a great partnership,” stated Jonathan Smith, AEC's Director of Sales. “HALTER has the technology; AEC brings the expertise in advising our customers on work flow processes, designing automation solutions and building equipment, all while understanding the disruption and the rewards of change.”

HALTER CNC Robotics, with U.S. offices in Cascade, Iowa, has over 25 years of experience in the
metalworking industry. The HALTER LoadAssistant addresses the growing shortage of skilled CNC
operators by automating tedious and repetitive work. Specifically designed for loading batches from 10 to 1,000 workpieces, the system allows small to medium-sized enterprises to immediately increase profit margins and production.

Founded in 1981, Automation Engineering collaborates with some of the world’s most innovative
manufacturers to develop automated solutions that optimize plant efficiency and safety. With offices in Greenville and Houston, Texas, AEC works with both original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and Tier 1-3 suppliers in the aerospace, automotive, tube and pipe (OCTG), distribution and manufacturing industries.
