From simple assembly aids to fully automated production lines, we have the engineering expertise to handle your unique requirements.

CSE Automation, LLC was started with one person in 1974 as a division of Carlson Systems. It’s goal being to reduce the labor required to assemble, fasten and package products in the cabinet, furniture and fenestration industries. From those humble beginnings, CSE Automation, LLC has become a leader in assembly automation for some of the country’s leading manufacturers.

Cost reduction and manpower utilization remain our focus. Over 35 years we have grown our expertise into the custom design and build of assembly systems for wood, vinyl, and aluminum.

With the acquisition of Wegoma in 2003, the product line was increased to add vinyl and aluminum fabrication solutions. This allowed us to become a full systems integrator, from fabrication to assembly, for the vinyl and aluminum window and door markets.

CSE Automation, LLC was acquired by Tri-V Tool & Mfg. Co. in November of 2009. With this acquisition, CSE Automation, LLC now has access to additional manufacturing and engineering support. Combining our 40+ years of expertise in providing unique assembly and fabrication solutions with their 30+ years of manufacturing expertise, we are truly a premier provider for all of your automation needs.

Our People, Our Products, and Our Partnerships with Our Customers.

I have used Carlson’s door pinner for quite a while now. In all that time, I have never had any issues with the pinner. When we run out of pins, the light always come on to let us know to reload the guns, and it is always accurate. The joints are always pressed tightly, and using the Carlson pinner has increased production at my plant by 25%! I wouldn’t use any other machine. The expertise and knowledge of their staff can’t be beat either.
Chris Cimino, President of Cimino’s Cabinet Doors Inc

Our company is a one stop shop for cabinet makers in the southeast. We supply both cope and stick and mitered doors to our customers. In our plant, we have two of the Carlson Pro Max 1000 pinners. These are very dependable, low maintenance, and easy to operate machines. Between the two machines we have done well over a million doors. We are proud to use these machines that are manufactured here in the USA.
