Altix, originally named Automa-Tech, has been operating at the leading edge of technology since 1991.

Solely dedicated to the manufacturing of imaging equipment, Automa-Tech started in business by producing fully automatic soldermask (SM/PSR) and Roll-to-Roll conventional exposures (with mask).

In early 2009, after a capital restructuring and Management buy-out, Automa-Tech became Altix, Automa-Tech™ which is still being used as a trademark.

The Company is presently offering a complete range of conventional printers and Direct Imaging systems, and exports more than 95% of its production outside of France.

Altix currently consists of its Manufacturing plant in Val de Reuil – France (including R&D, Assembly, Customer Service), another assembly shop in Taiwan (only for semi-automatic contact exposures and sub-assemblies), and two Sales & Service subsidiaries; in China (two locations in Kunshan & Zhuhai), and in North America (Redmond, WA).
