Complex material handling made simple

Material Handling Automated Systems

You’ve got parts to move and store … and we’ve got the automated material handling systems to move and place them. Our systems can integrate advanced technologies to ensure that you’ve got the material handling systems that are specifically designed for your critical workflows.

Our Specialty Material Handling Systems can integrate with large OEM assembly lines, or they can be stand-alone turn-key systems for Tier 1 and mid-sized manufacturers, with clean rooms, sanitary, wash down or explosion-proof environments. Our custom systems are developed to meet our customers’ exact market requirements.

Promation may add our AGVs or Industrial Robots to further enhance the productivity of the system; and we have ample automation capabilities to integrate with the numerous material handling specialized devices, such as laser label scanners, laser safety scanners, laser printers and measurement devices like weight systems and many others.

Precise mechanics on robotic arm in industry

Featured Works

Front-End Module (FEM) Delivery System

This system is a recycling transfer of FEM sub-assembly from the FEM assembly line to the main car assembly line. The FEM assemblies travel on transfer pallets, with a 59-second cycle time and two-shift operation. The system includes an AGV load station, AGVs travelling autonomously across a busy aisle, AGV unload station, FEM incline accumulation conveyor, FEM Right Angle Power Transfer and FEM Decline Empty Pallet Return Conveyor. The system is fully automated, with superb wireless safety for the AGVs and a complete control system.

Engine Load System

The system features a Loading Engine into a Triple Engine Rack with an automated Engine Pallet. With a 45-second feed cycle time, 20-year lifespan, and two-shift service, it includes a Delivery Conveyor System, Stacker De-Stacker, Pallet Conveyor System with Load and Rotate Station, and Control System.
