We love challenges
The possible uses of robots in industry are extremely diverse. From the palletizing of buckets, canisters, trays or sacks to packing (mixed) boxes, creating product layers and inserting lasagna sheets to filling injection molds, dosing or labeling – our robots pack and handle with the highest precision and care.
Not possible? Not with us! Sure, some projects are a bit more complicated and require all our creativity. But that is exactly what makes us special: at de Man you get besides our standard cells MKA, MPZ, MRZ and MEZ also individually tailored solutions. Whether we dig a hole for the robot due to a lack of room height or realize a ceiling opening, whether the conveyor technology is lowered or suspended from the ceiling due to lack of space – we make your project possible!
Optimize your production processes with robot-specific endurance, speed and accuracy! Select your industry and / or your desired application in the search mask below and let our selected references convince you!
Palletizing gravel bundles and boxes with the MRZ 2.1REF32
In our palletizing cell MRZ 2.1 for the company Jens Rosnerski Baustoffe & Zool. Bedarf both gravel packs and cartons are stacked on Euro pallets. In order to be able to transport both types of products safely, we developed a fork gripper with a lateral clamping plate and a hold-down device.
length stop LDM 400REF38
Fast and precise processing of rails for pleats with our length stop LDM 400 at Window Fashion AG. The high-precision system is intuitive to operate, positions the stop to the tenth of a millimeter in just a few seconds and can be coupled to existing machines such as saws, drilling machines or milling machines.
Palletizing of buckets with portal robotREF37
The video shows the pre-assembly of a palletizing system for buckets in our production hall. The system consists of a linear portal with an impressive length of around twelve meters, seven palletizing stations, a combined weighing and camera station and a pallet conveyor system with two cross-transfer carriages, pallet and floor layer magazine.
Palletizing, wrapping and labeling of flour sacksREF35
In a total of three steps, we automated the complete palletizing and shipping preparation of sacks with flour, grist and peeled products for the SchapfenMühle. The challenge was the large variance in the dimensions and filling levels of the sacks, which are now stacked perfectly by the specially developed grippers.
Labeling of canistersREF34
In our two MEZ labeling cells for Stockmeier Chemie in Bielefeld, canisters of various sizes are taken from the upstream filling plant and labeled on up to four sides, depending on the product type.
Palletizing with the MRZ 2.1REF33
Our palletizing cell MRZ is the uncomplicated entry into robot palletizing! The flexible and compact robot cell is available in various basic modules from which you can simply choose the right variant. This results in shorter planning and delivery times as well as lower costs.
Two storage systems with robot depalletizingREF29
Two automatic small parts warehouses at the Hettich company in Spenge ensure smooth warehouse processes. The goals in the implementation were to guarantee production security through inventory reserves, short replenishment times and unmanned KLT handling by a robot.
Filling and palletizing as well as depalletizing of sacksREF28
Filling, weighing, knocking over, rolling, palletizing and, on the other hand, depalletizing and emptying of sacks with plastic compounds- at Sitraplas, it was important to manage many processes as efficiently as possible in one system. The performance could be doubled.
Palletizing sacks with flour, meal and peeling productsREF5
The challenge with the SchapfenMühle was the large variance in the dimensions and filling levels of the sacks with flour, meal and peeling products. de Man created a palletizing system with two pallet magazines, a bottom layer magazine and a pallet lifting station.
Palletizing boxes with menu trays with the MRZ 2.2REF2
A robot stacks 18 different sized and heavy boxes with menu trays in the plant for Prima Menu on EURO pallets. Different product types can be palletized in parallel by the two roller conveyors, palletizing stations and pallet conveyor lines of our MRZ 2.2.
Palletizing flour sacksREF3
At Crienitz, due to the spatial conditions, we placed the robot on a pedestal and let it protrude through a ceiling opening to the first floor. This way, he can both take the sacks from the pickup position on the upper floor and place them on the pallet on the ground floor.
Palletizing of packagesREF6
The gripper at Frisia is designed in such a way that it clamps the packages with furniture parts from above through a large contact surface. This is necessary because there are small parts in the upper area and a punctual pressure could result in the packages being pressed in.
Bag welding systemREF8
Our fully automatic bag shrink-wrapping system for Nölke consists of several conveyor lines, robots, camera and the shrink-wrapping station. Challenge: The system had to be suitable for shrink-wrapping a wide variety of products as well as to be flexible with regard to the composition within the bag.
Palletizing flour sacksREF9
Due to the extremely tight space conditions, we had the sacks placed on the filler neck by a separate handling system. A hollow of 60cm for the robot and the almost ground level chain conveyor for transporting the pallets enable a palletizing process with a room height of only 2 meters.
De- / palletizing and labeling of KLTsREF10
Specification for the de-/palletizing system for Harting: the implementation of nested packing schemes for optimal utilization of the pallet capacities as well as the condition not to penetrate the filled boxes with the gripper. A second robot sticks the labels precisely onto the designated fields.
Automatic warehouse for medical devicesREF19
At 3M Espe, KLTs with local anesthetics are brought to the storage level via a distribution lift and stored multi-deep in the racking system. The ChannelCar is used here, which moves independently of the main device and significantly increases the availability of the warehouse.
Automatic small parts warehouse for fastening elementsREF14
The small load carriers are stored 4 times deep at Dremec with the special feature that the KLT are stored transversely. The single-aisle warehouse serves a total of 2 storage blocks, each with 40 levels one above the other and 23 rows next to each other. The total capacity is 7,312 KLT.
Filling foam moldsREF16
Increased throughput, high efficiency, ease of use and the greatest possible protection for the worker in interaction with the robot on a fixed workpiece carrier - these were the requirements for the implementation of partial automation for the production of PUR parts at MKG Metall- und Kunststoffververarbeitunggesellschaft mbH.
Palletizing boxes with cisternsREF17
Palletizing buckets, canisters and boxes with sugarREF21
We developed a semi-automatic palletizing system with two robots for Nordzucker. The canisters and buckets are palletized with the same gripper, a change of gripper is required for the boxes. A large suction gripper for intermediate layers is attached by a magnet.
Two automatic small parts warehousesREF22
The two AKLs at ABB's location in Ratingen are each divided into the areas of channel storage with a storage and retrieval machine, automatic flow-through storage for manual picking and input and output locations. The storage and retrieval machine consists of a shelf vehicle and a canal vehicle (ChannelCar) and can store up to seven containers of 600x400x280 mm in a row.
Palletizing and labeling of fire extinguishersREF27
For Gloria, we developed a fully automatic palletizing system with three robots that stack boxes of different sizes with fire extinguishers ready for dispatch on Euro standard or one-way pallets. After the stretching process, the full pallets are conveyed to a turntable and labeled on the front and back.
Automatic bar storage systemREF25
The single-aisle warehouse for a manufacturer of window and door elements offers two storage blocks with 16 or 18 levels one above the other and has a total capacity of 34 parking spaces. The stored goods are deposited in sheet metal trays (tubs). In this way, even small parts can be stored easily, as requested by the customer.
