On this page you will find various projects to which Twin-Tech has contributed at various stages of the process. Take a look and be inspired by what Twin-Tech engineering can do for you.
Brick strip pasting machine
Planning to automate your production process, but not quite sure how? Let us know we are happy to think along with you without obligation! We can often create an animation in a concept phase to get everyone on the same page, determine cycle times and analyze the business case. For example, in this example, where a concept animation was made for a customer for a machine to automatically glue bricks to prefab façades.
Robot setup for cutting stainless steel production
For Kool Automation we have developed a robot setup with 3 different vacuum grippers that automate the cutting of stainless steel plates for washbasins. With the grippers it is possible to pick up different sizes of plates from a stack and cut them. The robot is equipped with an automatic changing head with which the grippers in the changing station can be picked up and removed.
3D animation Voorbij Prefab
Voorbij Prefab in Amsterdam produces sustainable prefab concrete products for, among other things, residential construction. She wanted to expand to prefab walls with insulation in them, which led to the demand for a production line for cutting insulation panels to size. With this (semi) automatic production line, insulation panels can be applied to precast concrete elements. For this, the data from the BIM model is used to automatically determine the optimal layout and limit the cutting loss. In short: a shorter construction time, less transport, less waste and a faster production process.

Robot setup for destacking foam blocks
On behalf of 101 Industriële automatisering, we developed a robot setup with palletpusher. The robot destacks foam blocks from a pallet and puts them on a conveyor. After destacking the foam blocks, the pallet is be stacked on another stack. If this stack is full, the pallet pusher, pushes the stack away, so a new stack can be made. With a continuous flow of foam blocks, the robot never has to stand still.
Automated overhead crane
In collaboration with Aircrete, we have been able to contribute to further automation and scaling up for one of Aircrete’s customers in Asia, a production company in the construction sector. As part of this objective, the company’s need for a new overhead crane emerged. Thanks to the new design, it will soon be possible to scale up, the capacity and speed of the production process will be accelerated, without the need for extra hands.

Optimization of bicycle storage
A concept study was carried out on behalf of Westerman Logistics to optimize the handling process for bicycle storage. A concept has been developed for this purpose with which bicycles can be stored efficiently and with which as many actions as possible are automated. A special pallet solution has been designed for storage, whereby the bicycles are stored per 3 and individual bicycles can be combined with bicycles in boxes. The process was then simulated and the capacity and cycle times were calculated.
The simulation looked at the ideal length and height of the rack to arrive at the most efficient warehouse and to be able to realize short cycle times. The bicycles come in from a truck after which they are registered and placed on a pallet. This can be with bicycles from the same truck or on a pallet with 1 or more bicycles on it. The pallets are then transported to a location in the warehouse by means of conveyors and an automatic warehouse forklift. When there is a request for a bicycle on the outgoing line, the warehouse gets to work again. The correct pallet is picked up and brought to the export station. The pallet then continues to the filling station where new bicycles can be placed and the cycle repeats.
Automate folding and packing of boxes
Automatically set up, fill, fold, tape and palletize boxes. A question that we are getting more and more often from our customers and a process that is now easy to automate.
The techniques are not new, but the solution is often customer-specific since every product, production space, cycle time and working method is different. An investment that in many cases (assuming depreciation over, for example, 2-3 years), immediately saves money.
Here you can see an animation of a concept design that we have developed for 1 of our customers. In addition to custom solutions, we will soon also be presenting a standard setup for palletizing.
