Ovation Products

Pioneer of numerous productivity enhancing tools designed to optimize SMT electronic equipment and processes. Innovator of the award-winning Grid-Lok, Magna-Print and Stinger technologies.


One of the industry’s most innovative technology developers, Ovation Products has pioneered numerous simple yet highly effective solutions that solve longstanding electronics manufacturing problems.  Founded in 1999, our youth is not indicative of the staff’s expertise or the impact our products have had on the marketplace. In less than 10 years, Ovation has launched the multi-award winning Grid-Lok®, HD Grid-Lok®, Magna-Print™ and Stinger™ productivity solutions and now boasts an installed base of over 4,000 systems worldwide.

In 1999, Ovation introduced Grid-Lok, the industry’s leading reconfigurable board support technology.  Ideal for high-mix environments and quick product changeover, Grid-Lok and its high-density successor, HD Grid-Lok, (now know as Grid-LokGold™) have arguably transformed versatile tooling techniques for modern electronics manufacture. Other notable Ovation products include universal squeegee technology, Magna-Print, and printer-adaptable dispense system, Stinger. All are imaginative technologies that are easy to use, offer considerable manufacturing flexibility and lower production costs.  In 2011, Ovation Products introduced a new product: Grid-Lok Silver™.  Its unique design combines the benefits of manual locking modules with the obvious advantages of easy upgrade to automatic tooling.  A manual Grid-Lok Silver™ Kit can be upgraded if you decide to invest in an automatic solution.
