• Robotic system from de Man

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 MKAMPZ, 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!

Bag welding system

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.
