The Advantages of Tec-Option

Tec-Option is proud to manufacture next-generation, flexible, efficient assembly equipment that utilizes a proven platform and features integrated training and control tools. Automated, modular equipment from Tec-Option is far superior to a dedicated single-use capital investment, as it extends your capital investment to multiple programs, minimizes your floor space requirements, reduces maintenance and training support, and enhances operator ergonomics and safety.

Tec-Option's Circle of Life

“The circle of life” is something we take very seriously at Tec-Option, as we believe this is vital to offering our customers the best service possible.

The five key components of the life cycle of our fast, flexible resistance welding systems illustrate why we think this isn’t just the best way of doing business… it’s the only way.

Flexible Equipment:

TO-Flexible_SMDesigned with the ever-changing automobile market in mind, our modular machinery is built to handle many different types of assembly processes. You could purchase a spot welding machine, a fastener welding machine, and a tooling machine; or, you can choose a Tec-Option flexible value added process machine that can perform all those processes, as well as staking, bushing insertion, hole piercing, part marking, MIG welding, sealant application, and more, depending on your program requirements. With our innovative, flexible, modular system, you no longer need to buy a dedicated machine that will be obsolete when the program is completed.

Interchangeable Tooling:

TO-ITooling_SMOur patented, modular solution allows for tool changeover in less than five minutes, without requiring a forklift or skilled tradespeople. With Tec-Option’s interchangeable tooling, you can switch from welding to piercing or any other tooling application without stopping production.


Automated & Efficient Process & System:

TO-Automated_SMWhy pay for manual labor and slow production when we can automate your assembly process? Our automated robotic welding equipment allows you to increase quality and production rates, and allows for reassignment of labor assets.


Our compact, quick change weld systems reduce the requirement for valuable production floor space. Tec-Option’s efficient resistance welding systems mean that resistance welding is performed up to three times faster than traditional robot techniques. Electric servo positioning reduces plant air demands and the overall amount of hardware required to perform a task. Side by side stations allow for operator load/unload time to be buried in the machine cycle, so the interchangeable resistance welding system is always working for you. With our quick change tooling, you may perform tooling changeover daily, weekly, or at the end of a program: your capital investment is ready for the next task, instead of the scrap pile!

Multiple Value-Added Processes:

TO-MVAP_SMWith the robotic Tec-Flex system, you can choose from multiple value-added processes and combine them into one Flexible Tool Module. Examples include MIG welding and fastener welding; spot welding and staking; hole piercing and sealant application; and bushing insertion and part marking: with our interchangeable resistance welding tooling systems and beyond, the combinations are endless.


Extended Life:

TO-Extended_Life_SMWith robust components and proven design concepts, our modular solution is designed for years of service, not just for one program. Re-use your capital investment and save money on concurrent programs or future ones. With its flexibility, interchangeable tooling, automated processes and efficiency, our innovative resistance welding quick change tooling solution will continue to perform well beyond the initial payback period, and continue to save valuable resources in today’s uncertain economy.


We encourage you consider where you envision your capital investment in three to five years…  In the scrapyard? – or – In Production?

Since 2001, Honda of America Mfg., Inc. has consistently encouraged their suppliers to review the Tec-Option modular assembly system as a possible source of manufacturing equipment. While Honda has no direct control over who their suppliers choose, getting a recommendation shows that Honda sees the value of the flexible, modular system that Tec-Option provides.
