The huge variety of materials processed during production, means those servicing the sector require a breadth of proven, high performing and dynamic material handling solutions to support a range of applications across the food and beverage, consumer goods, packaging, and chemical industries.
Industrial companies, as well as special purpose machine builders, conveying and robotic handling systems providers, and turnkey project solution partners, have diverse material handling needs that require system partners to deliver flexible, reliable and efficient solutions.
Our market-leading, high quality and reliable solutions are supporting material handling businesses enhance outcomes for many industrial applications.
Increase productivity – develop scalable automation systems – automate manual operations – effectively handle high mix and low volume production - drive down energy costs – meet regulatory obligations
The following key application areas is where Norgren’s material handling solution expertise is acknowledged and proven.
With intelligent systems needed for material handling pick and place systems, we have the capabilities to design and manufacture the dynamic solutions, including cartesian xyz systems, tool change couplers and grippers, utilised by cobots, assembly cells, fabrication, gantry systems and welding applications.
Special purpose OEM handling
Custom solutions to assist enhancing operations through effective pick and place processes. Used across mechanised lifting and rotating, handling, palletising, and sorting, our robust solutions, together with 2D and 3D CAD modelling, supports the build, maintenance and operation of equipment to ensure material movement is optimised.
Modular tooling in industrial automation & cobots
Tight spaces, odd angles, changing presses and products – your pressroom needs tooling that can adapt to any situation with a wide range of motion and faster speeds for overall increased capacity.
Bulk material handling
Dealing with a varied spectrum of materials can present challenges. Our proven and intelligent solutions are providing enhanced reliability to OEMs and machine operators involved in mechanical and vacuum powder transfer, powder discharge and cleaning, bagging, and weighing processes.
A comprehensive core product range complemented by customised solutions, such as bespoke electric actuators, help overcome automation challenges across warehousing, turnkey projects, production lines, welding, and assembly processes.
Conveyor packaging specialists
Palletising, conveying, packaging and overhead conveying processes require reliable transportation of product and repeatable precision. Our tried and trusted portfolio including valve islands, electric actuators, and cylinders, is already delivering efficient and intelligent packaging solutions.
Pressroom & vacuum material handling
Delivering automation design and modular tooling for press lines with industry-leading products for tandem, crossbar, tri-axis and hot forming press applications. Efficient and productive press operation begins with the seamless integration of part motion, die structure and finger tooling. We offer a multi-step system that coordinates process, die, and finger designs to optimise efficiency and throughput.
As vacuum experts, our 40+ years of innovative solutions including vacuum generators, suction cups, vacuum switches, fittings and plug and play end of arm tooling (EOAT) continue to increase productivity and lower costs for customers.
While each material handling solution must tackle its own challenges, close collaboration that benefit from Norgren’s technical and application expertise, extensive in-the-field experience, and robust innovative product and system solutions, has seen global, national and local material handing customers become more effective, more productive, and more successful.
The need for automated solutions continues to accelerate, and organisations are looking to capture the operational, productivity and reliability benefits intelligent automation technology can deliver.
The value of automated solutions continues to grow, offering benefits including increased operational efficiency and performance, and reductions in human error.
