Welcome to our webpage. AE Machines is a start-up founded by a husband-and-wife team of engineers. We are building tools to make robotic automation accessible to small-batch manufacturers. We want manufacturers and system integrators of all sizes to be able to build and maintain flexible automation using their existing workforce. We are accomplishing that through a top-down approach to software design that utilizes software blocks to design system functionality. We have a live demo that we are using to raise money to scale our technology to industrial hardware. We are located in the EnterpriseWorks Incubator in the University of Illinois Research Park and are supported by grants from the National Science Foundation (NSF). See updates from our company by following us on Twitter @aemachines.
