For 20 years, we have built automated equipment ranging from small fixtures to fully automated systems for early stage startups to Fortune 500 companies in biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, medical device, automotive, semi-conductor, electronics, and solar industries. Whether you are new to automation or a seasoned veteran, we will make your vision a reality by guiding you through each stage of design, manufacture and implementation.

Safety

Your safety is of utmost importance to us. Each of our machines is designed and built to operate in a failsafe mode. Keeping employees injury-free helps maintain morale and retention, and reduces your liability. It’s our priority to build machines you can rely on.

Functionality

Our collaboration with you throughout the design and build of your machine ensures that your equipment operates the way you intended. That is why we adamantly uphold and perform factory acceptance tests to guarantee no piece of equipment leaves our facility until you are fully satisfied.

Serviceability

Each of our machines is designed to be serviced with ease. We take your experience with the equipment seriously and want to ensure a smooth process. Our machines are designed to minimize the number of steps the operator has to perform. And if at any time you require repair, replacement of parts, or service of your machine, we’re just a phone call away.

Aesthetics

Our extensive experience has led to our belief that operators are more motivated to care for your equipment when it looks as good as it operates. We take great pride in making sure that your machine looks appealing and is aesthetically at its best. Your clients and investors will be impressed with the superior design and quality of your equipment.

Client Testimonials

Sandeep and his impressive team bring together a rare set of skills and have proven themselves time and again for our group at Tesla. We’ve worked with Nexus Automation for design and machining work on numerous occasions and they’ve always met our deadlines. Their process has been seamless. I like working with Sandeep because he carefully listens to our requirements and goes out of his way to offer the best solutions/consultations no matter how busy he is. Our communications have always been honest and transparent, and I find Sandeep a pleasure to work with.

Harsha M

I’m thoroughly impressed by Nexus Automation’s efficiency and quality work. We hired Nexus for a project that involved unique, complex details requiring attention to detail to tedious work — and we were impressed by the ease with which Sandeep and his team handled it all. Nexus Automation was able to accommodate our fluid schedule and completed the work ahead of schedule. Nexus team proved to us that they are more than capable of handling a project, start to finish, for high-profile, highly scrutinized industry-leading client.

Rob P

Sandeep (Nexus Automation) has provided support for numerous fast-paced projects of various sizes over the past year and half for me and my team, ranging from custom part manufacture to build-to-print systems to mechanical design. I have been able to rely on him and his team to deliver on time, and he has been able to accommodate any changes with ease. I’m continually impressed by his dedication and involvement – whenever unexpected issues come up, he steps in to quickly fight fires and solve problems. I truly enjoy working with Sandeep due to his humor, humility, and insight.

Nick P

Sandeep helped take conceptual drawings and models of our combined cell-isolation liquid-handler prototype to a fully-designed, working medical instrument. Sandeep and his experienced team of engineers and machinists were able to fabricate this machine in an incredibly fast 8-week time period! During the design process, Sandeep was always available to provide feedback and recommendations on our evolving design and was more than happy to make changes on the fly. I would recommend Sandeep and his team to anyone looking to design and automate their machine.

Sam F

Great work with the layout, set-up, staffing, and thinning out of old materials. The business feels much more organized, and the location much cleaner. By the way, the system was a big hit today in its management debut. Lots of ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’.

Greg F

I really enjoy working with Sandeep. He is a super nice guy with no hidden agenda which makes working with him very easy. He is an honorable man that I trust. I highly recommend working with him and endorse him as a customer and business partner.
