Power supply solutions tailored for gaming applications

Setec has a long history of manufacturing power supply solutions for the gaming industry.

In the 1980s, our founder, Peter Lloyd, brokered an agreement with Ainsworth Consolidated Industries, based in NSW. This partnership saw the development of the first power supply solution for electronic gaming machines and brought on exponential growth for Setec. It was a defining moment in our history, one that propelled us into prominence as an Australian manufacturer of world-class power products for gaming applications.

During the mid-1990s, we welcomed Aristocrat to our customer base when we began designing and manufacturing power supply units for their gaming machines. A significant milestone was achieved through this partnership, where we produced 100,000 superior power supplies in a period of less than three years, on time, on budget and at a competitive price.

Over our years in business, we have continued to produce superior power supply units for the gaming industry. Our technical expertise and knowledge of the unique power requirements for gaming products has increased markedly, and Setec is now known as a top specialist designer and manufacturer of power supply units for slot machines. Our competitive pricing, engineering expertise and our substantial depth in knowledge of slot machines keeps us in the lead, ahead of our overseas competitors.
Setec’s position as a leading supplier of power units for gaming machines reached over the seas when, just after the new millennium, we made the decision to exhibit at the G2E gaming conference in Las Vegas. We excitedly welcomed many new US-based customers, and our growth in technical knowledge and skill, as well as customer service expertise manifested in new partnerships and custom gaming machine power supplies. We are now in the unique and fortunate position of enjoying loyal and long-term working relationships with many of our customers, who include Ainsworth, Aristocrat, WMS and Stargames.
The gaming industry is heavily regulated. Yet Setec’s commitment to understand the relevant industry regulations provides us with key skills within our research and design team, enabling us to create custom power supplies for electronic gaming machines that are cost-effective, reliable, and specific to gaming regulations. We are proud of these core qualities and we acknowledge that a conscious effort to merge these qualities at a whole-of-business level continually positions us as a leading provider of power supplies for gaming machines, both here in Australia and in the USA.

Setec’s history as a manufacturer of power management products highlights our proven ability to deliver core building blocks which increase functionality and future-proof products. We have more than fifty years of commitment to providing high quality and reliable power supply units, and we have heavily invested in our specialised world-leading manufacturing facility, our home to industry-leading equipment and key machinery where we strive for excellence in design, manufacturing, and customer service.
