Stay competitive in a world that’s heavily automated.

Many industries face challenges in maintaining a skilled labour force.

Automating tasks involving intensive labour, quality control, repetitive movements, and product placement creates a more efficient and accurate product flow and leaves more complex tasks and skilled jobs available for humans.

Client communication, an open-door policy, and effective project management are central to our automation projects.

Clients are integral to the process, working with us onsite to explore concepts and solve problems.

Working with industry-leading robotics and controls providers results in client-driven, fit-for-purpose process improvements in manufacturing, assembly, and packaging.

Brands that we work with

 

Industrial Automation and Process Automation

Enginuity offers a full range of automation services:

R

Industrial Controls

include systems and instrumentation for industrial processes.

Enginuity has expertise in:

  • PLCs — Programmable logic controllers are industrial computers adapted for the control of manufacturing processes like assembly lines or robotic devices. They are rugged, highly reliable, and easy to program.
  • HMIs — Human-machine interfaces are industrial-grade user interfaces, or dashboards, that allow a person to a control a machine, system, or device.
  • Upgrades to legacy equipment to establish smart, new, and efficient processes
  • Creation or upgrade of entire production lines
R

Machine Vision

is a computer’s ability to see using video cameras, analog-to-digital conversion (ADC), and digital signal processing (DSP).

Image data is fed to a computer or robot controller to accomplish tasks such as shape identification, sorting, grading, and scanning.

Enginuity’s experts can help you establish machine vision processes for:

  • Quality control — Machines optimize production lines through improved speed and accuracy. Machine vision is ultra-fast and can identify any number of defects.
  • AI — Use Artificial Intelligence to learn from the process to ensure accuracy is maintained and improved over time.
  • Classification — Machine vision can classify parts or components.
  • Determining volume and weight — 3D vision can be used to find the volume of objects, so you know when a can is full or a package is at capacity.
  • Production identification – Reading bar codes, RFID, and QR codes to determine next steps in the process.
  • Thermal sensing — Indicates if a person or product is present or if a device is overheating.
  • Grading — Many food items must be graded, like eggs or apple

Nathan Field

Automation and Robotics Manager

 

Nathan Field leads the Automation and Robotics team at Enginuity Inc. He has a passion for what he does and truly enjoys automation, robotics, and industry 4.0 technologies.

Graduating in Ontario in 2017 with an associate degree in electrical engineering technology (automation stream), he quickly became an electrical and controls designer for a company out of Ontario, working on large projects for some very well-known clients.

Since moving to Nova Scotia in late 2019 Nathan has worked for Enginuity Inc., bringing their automation and robotics division to life.

Nathan has seen the potential of automation while working in Ontario, and he hopes to help develop it here in Atlantic Canada. He hopes to skip the many years classic factories took to incrementally upgrade their automated systems and bring Industry 4.0 capability to current projects. This will help ensure scalability and optimal functionality – and can allow companies to remain competitive on the worlds stage.
