That is why we became Oxfam Novib's corporate ambassador: an organization dedicated to a world without poverty and equal opportunities for all. They, like us, always go out of the power and opportunities of the people themselves.

    We support Oxfam Novib's microfinance program, called Entrepreneurs for Entrepreneurs. Lending to a bank is often not possible for poor people. Partly thanks to our help, people in developing countries receive a small credit through the microfinance program. With this credit they get the opportunity to build their own business, and thus an independent existence. Thus, people can build their own future and their own country.

    Final test, machines on US power supply.

    A generator outside our production hall is providing US power. Soon we will ship two machines to New Orleans. Of course we want to test whether all electronics designed as such, are actually suitable for both European as well as American power supply. Fortunately, that appears to be the case without any problems!

    SmartFeeder ready for integration.

    The Smart Feeder fulfills the same function as a traditional vibration bowl feeder; the singling out of bulk and orientation of parts. However, the Smart Feeder has a number of very great advantages with respect to a traditional vibration bowl feeder:

    The Smart Feeder is universal, where a vibration bowl feeder is always taylormade for a part.
    The Smart Feeder is able to work with more than one part or component. This is a great advantage when more variants of a product are produced or several products are manufactured on one line.
    Therefore, the Smart Feeder after the life cycle of a product is re-usable for another product.
    Therefore, the Smart Feeder has a quick change over time, a new part or component can be added in a quarter by a teach-in function.
    Smart Feeder achieves the same performance as a traditional vibration bowl feeder but for a wider range components in size and mass.
    The integrated vision technology makes it possible to do quality checks of parts.
    The integrated robotics make it possible to perform simple assembly operations.

     Smart Automation has a test setup to demonstrate the usability for your particular parts or components.

    New SmartFeeder succesfully tested.

    Smart Automation has focused the last few years on developing flexible supply technology. The past year has resulted in a first prototype of the Smart Feeder. In November and December 2013 test conducted with the prototype that demonstrated the operation of the innovative technology. Through voice coil technology are generated in different directions vibrations. Hereby is achieved that entirety moved under a camera, can be spread and reversed. A unique aspect of the technology used is that both very small / light and even frangible parts can be manipulated as well large and heavier components. The developed vision technology is able to recognize graspable properly oriented products, and to send to the integrated robot on the basis of this information.
