AST began in Glen Mills, Pennsylvania with a focus on design and finite element analysis. As AST invested in structured light digital metrology, the company adapted and moved to a facility with the resources required for precision measurements. Seeking to grow prototyping and small-scale manufacturing, AST purchased its first CNC machining center in 2008. In the years following, the company acquired metalworking machinery while also remaining updated on the latest developments in engineering software.
In 2014, AST’s growth led to the opening of a new integrated facility. By placing design, manufacturing, and electronic fabrication at a single location, AST greatly enhanced its ability to develop new products and meet the evolving requirements of our customers. Today, the company continues to expand on the unique services we offer our customers. Recent acquisition of wood products machinery is allowing us to innovate using traditional materials.
Also paramount to our success is investment in team members through support for continuing education and professional development. Our staff is continually growing in both size and scope, allowing AST to deliver the agility of a small business alongside the resources required to enable visionary ideas.
AST is the exclusive reseller of REFLECON® scanning sprays, a unique line of matting agents developed specifically to aid in 3D scanning difficult, highly-reflective surfaces.
