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.
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.
Material handling, 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.
Automated storage and retrieval systems (ASRS) can make your warehouse more efficient.
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.
