Our Story


In the nineties, the primary passion and expertise for Robotic Process Systems Automation was solely selective soldering. With success at delivering automated soldering equipment to a global client base, Robotic Process Systems was able to be the first company to introduce selective soldering to North America. From 2001 to 2006, the company sold their selective soldering systems under an exclusive private label partnership with Tyco. In 2007, the CEO and the CFO at the time, led an investment group that purchased Robotics Process Systems Automation, and re-branded the company as RPS Automation, LLC. In 2015, RPS Automation, LLC was bought by one of its own engineers, and the name was changed to the current name Hentec Industries / RPS Automation. Hentec/RPS continues to  develop, manufacture, and market its selective soldering, lead tinning, and solderability testing products and services to a global customer base while being independently owned and operated. As always, Hentec/RPS is managed for long-term growth and profitability through a dedication to excellent customer service, prudent future investments, and the continued advancement of cutting-edge selective soldering, lead tinning, and solderability technologies.
