The Precision Alliance (TPA), a manufacturer and distributor of linear motion systems focused in the medical, defense, packaging and semiconductor industries, recently announced record sales for 2014 and foresees subsequent growth in 2015.
“For 2015, we expect the general market for our products to remain steady through the year,” said Dennis Barnes, president of The Precision Alliance. “With several projects in development, we predict 2015 sales surpassing previous years.”
TPA’s most popular products continue to be their custom positioning X-Y-Z stages, minibots, ball screws, telescopic guides, high temperature linear bearings, as well as military spec bearings.
“The Minibot product line is seeing great success within the medical diagnostics market and we are anxious to further develop this technology with new and existing partners,” stated Dale Carpenter, TPA’s business development engineer.
By expanding and focusing on Minibot capabilities, TPA has designed and built a chamber that holds specimens for testing. They are expanding the Minibot capabilities to make deeper inroads into the instrument automation market. This market is continuously pushing for smaller system packages. One way they address this is by eliminating the need for connection plates when creating multiaxis systems. Each axis directly connects with one another reducing component costs and providing the most compact system available.
