Anaheim, California (February 5, 2019) – ATS Automation Tooling Systems Inc. (TSX: ATA) (“ATS” or the “Company”), a leader in Linear Motion Technology (LMT), today unveiled the SuperTrak MICRO™ conveyance platform, a new product with disruptive divert and merge capabilities that enable creative, high speed, production system designs.
SuperTrak MICRO™ allows manufacturers to minimize cell sizes and maximize floor space usage, all while creating a lean and agile manufacturing environment.

Built on the trusted SuperTrak GEN3™ foundation, SuperTrak MICRO™ pushes the boundaries of conveyance by offering a unique combination of individual shuttle control with high-speed sort and divert capability. Modular components within the SuperTrak MICRO™ platform allows for the configuration of a process to be done before determining the final product, making it perfectly suited to high-mix applications.
Whether the task is to build one million batches of one or one batch of one million, SuperTrak MICRO™ scales with every production requirement.
