ASM is an engineering company creating bespoke/special-purpose machines, from semi-automatic workstations to fully-automated production lines.

Founded in 1997, we’ve designed and installed more than 300 machines, prototypes, test benches and robots.

ASM sites are located in the South East corner of France and we install machines all over the world.

Our expertise ranges from semi-automatic machines, to fully-automated production lines and collaborative robots units.

ASM is also a specialist in ultrasonic welding and is a Universal Robots Certified System Integrator.



As such, we are a leading player in industrial productivity, with returns on investment often less than 2 years.

  • Feasibility with our Method team to provide a “turnkey” solution
  • Technical solutions by our CAD designers:
    • Modeling
    • Simulation
    • Resistance of materials in 3D CAD
    • 3D-printing (pre-testing prototypes)
  • Definition of requirements by our automation team: electric, pneumatic, industrial and robotics
  • Assembly, development and testing in our factory to reach specification and quality targets
  • Supervision and manufacturing planning integration with ERPs and IT systems
  • Installation and final acceptance on site with end-users training

Our Team

ASM Industrial Team relay

ASM engineers and technicians have a simple goal: to provide the technical solution or service that best meets customer requirements in terms of cost, time and quality.

  • Business managers: with their strong technical knowledge, they will innovate and offer unique solutions to meet your needs of bespoke machines.
  • Research department: both in Mechanical and in Automation, our team is composed of professionals with experience in both manufacturing and production. These skills allow them to design robust machines (simple, with reduced cost and easy maintenance), while meeting the needs required by important volumes.
  • Technicians: with the experience gained in recent years on projects in various technologies, they assemble your machines on site and ensure that your operators and technicians are trained to better optimize your production.

Our Sectors

Since its inception, ASM has voluntarily been working in multiple areas. This allows our engineers to address any queries and transfer technical solutions to new fields of application. This “outside-the-box” approach allows our team to find creative, innovative and cost-efficient solutions.
