Almost any manufacturing or material handling process can be improved
through automation by mechatronics.
Mechatronics is multidisciplinary engineering that leverages both electrical and mechanical systems and includes robotics, electronics, IT, communications, and command and control systems.
For example: Consider a fish processing plant.
You have to buy or manufacture a can, clean and fill the can, put a lid on the can, sleeve it, package it, put it on a pallet, and ship it out.
A lot of hands touch that process, not just on the line, but in the form of manual data entry, counting parts, stacking pallets, and more.
We can replace those hands with robotic solutions, allowing them to perform higher value tasks elsewhere in the facility.
Enginuity connects all those dots and creates (or fixes!) a production line with speed, accuracy, and insight into the whole system.
Both Stationary and Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) incorporate fully autonomous systems and can solve a wide range of challenges.

Our Robotic Engineering Services
including product processing, assembly, packaging, and palletizing, can be accomplished by a combination of robots and AMRs or autonomous guided vehicles (AGVs).
Multiple automated processes can be linked together to increase speed and accuracy, yield data, and allow for remote access.
Bin Picking Robots
streamline assembly and order fulfillment by selecting randomized items from bins.
This form of automation can calculate how to pick up items — from nuts and bolts to crabs and lobsters — no matter how they’re oriented, and with no prior programming.
Enginuity is proud to be the only provider of this technology in Atlantic Canada.
Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (ASRS)
can make your warehouse more efficient.
- Quality Assurance (QA) and Quality Control (QC) checking
- Large components retrieval and lifting
- Machine tending (part feeding, reloading)
Robotics solutions made specifically for you.
News and ideas involving our robotics capabilities.
Atlantic Canada is facing a labour shortage issue that is not altogether unique in North America, but has been exasperated due many smaller, often distinct but accumulating reasons. What can a company do when they are losing employees and do not have anyone to fill the gap? They could find people, or as will be explored in this whitepaper, automate the tasks they were doing.
IMO Foods in Yarmouth, NS has streamlined the packaging process of their popular
Kersen Canned Fish, using
Enginuity’s Robotics & Automation Team,
capturing all that is Industry 4.0.
With Enginuity’s Can Conveyance and Palletizing system, IMO can now double their production length to meet market demand with this food automation solution.
