Advantek Engineering Inc. was founded in 1992 by mechanical design engineer Paul Modlin [President] as a specialized engineering company focusing on the design, development, and implementation of automated machinery, vision systems, technical machinery, and gauges. Advantek Engineering has designed, developed, and manufactured many conventional and proprietary computer-controlled systems for industries including automotive, aerospace, defense, government research laboratories, universities, fiber optics, medical, semiconductors, transportation, robotics, and consumer goods.
Fiber optics is a major business concentration of Advantek Engineering. We have designed and developed many systems for manufacturing optical glass, fiber, Infra Red Fiber and materials, optical core rods, and tubes. These computer-controlled systems include: Straight Draw Towers, Drum Draw Towers, Low and High Tension Pulling systems, Crucible Melt Draw Towers, Custom Ovens, Glass Melting, and Draw Tower ovens, continuous motion variable rocking ovens for glass melting, and Glass Extruders.
Besides complete turnkey fiber optic manufacturing systems, we also design and build individual components such as: Tractor Pulling systems, Pinch Wheel Pulling systems, Closed Loop Laser size controllers, precision feeds, draw tower ovens, and automatic cutting systems. These components are designed to retrofit into existing outdated equipment and offer direct bolt on replacements for many common fiber optic systems.
