Raymond Gatta

Since 1985, rpGatta inc has specialized in custom built assembly equipment. We design, build, test, and install automated equipment for numerous applications and industries. We custom design every piece of equipment to meet the customer's needs, their specifications, their facility, and their product.

80% of the equipment we design is first of kind (prototypes) that must go into full production at the arrival to our customer's facilities.

We engineer the machine or system mechanically, electrically, pneumatically, hydraulically, and the software all in house.

The machinery or systems are fully assembled, tested, and demonstrated to the customer in our facility for approval before shipping to their facility.

Very often, we totally conceptualize the equipment from scratch with only the end purpose requirement provided by our customers.

We have been serving the vehicle, engine, agriculture, aerospace, and heavy off the road equipment assembly plants by assisting manufacturing engineers in resolving daily assembly line production and manufacturing challenges.

In 1998, we built our 28,000 sq. ft. facility in Aurora, Ohio. We expanded the building an additional 10,000 sq. ft. in 2017.  Of  the 38,000 total square footage, 30,000 sq. ft. is dedicated to welding, fabrication, painting, assembly, and testing of equipment. There are four 5-ton capacity overhead electric traveling cranes to aid in machine assembly, three docks for shipping and receiving, and a large paint booth. We have 8,000 sq. ft of offices which house our Engineering Department and Management Team.

We hold U.S. Patents on Semi-Automatic Line Tracking Bodyside Molding Apply Equipment, Error Proof Pin and Scriber Marking Systems, Intelligent Ergonomic Assist Systems, and on a Hoist/Balancer Twist Grip Pneumatic Control System. Our employees consist of several talented mechanical, controls, and software engineers and highly skilled machine and panel builders. Our machine electrical control cabinets are built, wired and tested in house to your specifications.

Our products are Computer Aided Designed. Our mechanical and electrical engineers are proficient with AutoDesk Inventor, and AutoCAD Mechanical and Electrical. We are able to easily go back and forth with many native CAD formats including Catia,  NX, Pro-E, and Solidworks to be capable with your in-house CAD product data.  Moreover, our software engineers are fluent in Visual Basic and C++.

Our engineering staff is accustomed to designing automation and ergonomic assist systems for vehicles, as an example, conveyed in overhead carriers, power and free conveying systems, front end leading, rear end leading, sidewinder, biased, and flat top conveyor systems.
