Looking to advance your automation strategy? As veterans of the plastics manufacturing industry, we provide a wide range of robotic automation solutions for molders, backed by signature aftermarket service.

Our Automation Services

From sizing new robots to aftermarket parts and service, we support our customers through the whole lifecycle of their automation solutions.

Application Engineering

Our technical and organizational expertise ensures your project is engineered safely, efficiently and on-budget. From initial planning phase to post-installation support, our team of dedicated in-house engineers are there to assist at any point throughout your automation project.

Aftermarket Support

ARI sources and stocks world-class components locally, ensuring low costs and quick lead time. Our aftermarket parts department is headquartered in Massachusetts with additional technical centers in Ohio and South Carolina. With full inventory of parts on US soil, lead time for replacement parts is never much longer than a day, and our customers can often source parts from local suppliers if necessary.


Most customers opt for on site start up and training when they purchase a robot with ARI. In addition, we offer in person classes at our technical centers (MA, OH, & SC), and remote online training classes year-round. Check out the ARI Aftermarket Support Portal for detailed robot guides, troubleshooting videos and more!


ARI works with multiple equipment financing partners to provide maximum funding and get your project started. The Absolute Group has fostered these relationships over 20 years, we stand by our partners, and we offer programs to allow for as much flexibility when purchasing as possible.
