About SMT Tooling

More than twenty years ago, our founder Charles Moncavage introduced the first automatic SMT tooling solution in the industry and since then has advanced the technology multiple times with Grid-lok Tooling, and more recently Quik-tool, each time raising the bar based upon feedback from the global customer base.

Here we are again, new and improved with tighter pin support density in a diamond pattern, eliminating soft spots and providing unparalleled support compared with any other system on the planet. All finally at a much more affordable cost!
