Manomatic is synonymous with innovation

Nicholaisen supplies project-planning services and sells industrial mechanical solutions. “When it comes to robot automation, we rely on Manomatic,” says fibreboard consultant, Bo Bruun Holm.

Consultant Bo Bruun Holm, Nicholaisen:

“Manomatic delivers robot technology to us. Manomatic’s strength lies in their innovative skills. They are capable of planning and designing a complex system and they see every project to the door. They are extremely innovative. As a provider of services, we rely on our suppliers to have the same approach as our own. We walk the extra mile and expect them to do the same.”

Robots that polish composite worktops
A specific example: Nicholaisen and Manomatic worked together on a project, which involved planning and delivering robot cells to a kitchen manufacturer, who produces work surfaces in a composite material called Corian®. In a conventional set-up, Corian® worktops are polished manually. It is an onerous and time-consuming process. Now robots are doing all the hard work.

“Working with Manomatic, we delivered a solution in which a robot is programmed to polish worktops. The polishing process is now better and uniform. The investment was extremely profitable for the client. In this particular case, we helped our client to calculate what would be economically feasible while Claus from Manomatic could knew precisely what it was technically possible to get the robot to do.”

The polishing process is now better and uniform. The investment was extremely profitable for the client.

 

“This company had many manual processes and found it difficult to manage order-based logistics. We tackled the issues with one robot cell that takes care of logistics, warehousing and several manufacturing processes.“

Robots that bring order into chaos
Another project that Nicholaisen and Manomatic worked on together, involved developing a complex robot cell that optimises processes, logistics and warehouse management at a subsupplier to the kitchen manufacturing industry.

“This company had many manual processes and found it difficult to manage order-based logistics. We devised a robot cell that takes care of the logistics, warehousing and several manufacturing processes. The robot knows where to find the elements. The robot cell locates component parts, glues them, and lays them up on shelving until they are needed in connection with a new process or assembly – and the robot knows when. The chaos associated with having several combinations of elements is now under control. It is a highly efficient, complex solution. Manomatic worked innovatively once again. They walked the extra mile. To our and our client’s complete satisfaction.

We are a service provider so it means a lot to us that we can offer complex, individual automation solutions. Working with Manomatic’s staff saves us money. They are incredibly clever. They develop with their customers and they are good at resolving tasks all the way from the ideas phase through implementation to after-sales.”
