After 25 years of serving the manu- facturing sector as EXSYS Tool, Inc., with its high-precision Eppinger tool- holders, the company has announced its expansion into a new realm of manufacturing solutions under the new name of EXSYS Automation, Inc.

The new company will also continue to offer its PRECI-FLEX modular tooling system as well as its other toolholding prod- ucts and gear box solutions along with tooling repair services and applications expertise.
“For today’s manufacturers, EX- SYS Automation will offer new high- quality Eppinger products designed to revolutionize chipmaking, maximize productivity and reduce per part costs to boost their competitiveness,” said a company spokesperson. Additionally, the company will offer IIoT-ready plug-in indexers and a range of robotic components all designed and built by German manufacturer ESA Eppinger GmbH.
