High tech machine building

Are you looking for a unique, high tech machine?

Every production process is unique and requires unique machinery. Often, there is no ready-made solution available. Special machines are created from innovative customisation, smart technology and craftsmanship.

We have been designing and building high-tech machines for the manufacturing industry for 35 years. Complex challenges such as complete production lines and product handling machines are our specialty.

As a client you are closely involved in the design and development process. In regular design reviews we sit down together to get to the best machine.

For over 35 years

Our high tech machine building expertise

We have developed in specific areas of expertise:

  • Precision positioning
  • Micro assembly
  • Product handling
  • High-end machine control
  • Medical and high-tech production technologies

Our strength lies in complex automation issues where creativity and innovation are a must.

Production automation is more than installing new machines. The entire production process must work efficiently and effectively. We think along and ahead in optimising production lines for optimal efficiency.

We develop, manufacture and test the high-tech machines extensively in-house. After approval and acceptance, we install the machine on location. This is done as efficiently as possible so downtime of the production process is kept to a minimum.

Long lifetime

Machines and setups that we build are carefully designed and developed to achieve high quality and a long lifetime.

We supply the machines with a spare parts list and are available for repairs afterwards. It is also possible to have machines overhauled or updated. This increases the success and sustainability of the machines.

These overhauls sometimes take place after 25 years, which makes the machine ready for the next 25 years.

We are proud of

Double scara robot set-up

This two-fold scara robot set-up is designed for the punching and pick & placing of metal parts. The machine is integrated in an fully automatic production line.

The parts are supplied from the production line. Entering the machine, ten products are punched at once and moved to the conveyor belt by an Omron Adept robot. This robot uses a tenfold vacuum gripper with pitch translation for the task. In the meantime, each part is identified by a vision system by using a matrix code printed on each product. The matrix code is communicated to the network of the production line and retrieves information about the rejection/approval of each part. If a part is rejected, it is deposited during the transportation from punch to conveyor belt.

At the end of the short conveyor belt, 500 parts are simultaneously transferred tot the next production machine by the second Omron scara robot with a magnetic gripper.

There were two different scara robots used in this set-up. This decision was based on the requirements for each task. The first robot is faster and has a cycle time of 2,5 seconds. The second robot was chosen for its payload of 20 kg as it must carry 500 parts in addition to the robust magnetic gripper.
