Affordable Automation-2

Through our robust technology platform and experience as both a service provider and manufacturer we’ve developed systems to empower organizations to (a) achieve breakthrough productivity with pulse packet sealing technology, intelligent, mixed reality, and cognitive services bringing together humans, machines and machine learning.  And (b) delivering highly flexible robust technology platform that allows you to work in an environment combining Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), people and cobotic (collaborative) automation together.  Collaborative automated systems are intended to interact with your employees to work safely in close proximity, such as process or machine-level automation, to increase production without compromising quality.

Another example of how the customer experience is completely transformed is predictive maintenance.  With pulse packet sealing technology, together with machine learning, and Ai, manufacturers boost equipment reliability and stay ahead of the unexpected issues that can derail production.  By capturing usage data and analyzing it with machine learning algorithms, our system automatically predicts component wear and adjusts parameters accordingly.  This is all possible with pulse packet sealing technology together with years of providing our exclusive 5-year warranty (renewable) providing us with the insight to fine-tune processes and make modifications that improve product quality and increase customer satisfaction.  Just another reason why our customers increase profits everyday they use one of our pulse packet sealing machines.

Automation made affordable through experienced engineering and pulse packet sealing technology.  Going forward, IIoT machine access and Ai will bring new levels of performance insight directly from customers for customer-driven product design improvements and faster productivity cycles.

Process Automation

We work with you to design the optimal solution

Process Automation integrates heat sealing with other processes to create a highly functional work cell.

Another example is the use of shuttle systems.  For example [photo inset below] is a shuttle system used to make a 42-foot  seal with a NovaPULS™-210 on 80-foot shuttle track system.  Our proprietary End-to-End sealing technology results in a completed long-length seal without witness marks from one seal to the next.  Shuttle moves in both directions.  This example of process automation also includes a laser activated alignment system, as well as multiple sealing configurations for various applications from keder/zipper attachment to overlap sealing of dissimilar materials.

Process automation is limited only by your imagination.

Examples of Process Automation include NovaPULS™ QUAD, a fully automatic machine that pockets 4-sides of a poster at rates up to 3 completed posters per minute.  Each of the four sides can be any of our NovaPULS™ Automatic Sealers ranging in bar length from 40inch to 360inch.  Click on the QUAD video (below) to view this machine in action.

A NovaPULS™ ‘L-Shaped’ Sealer includes only two sides.  Also of varying side lengths. 

NovaPULS™ QUAD Video

Process Automation is not limited to PulseSealers.  Consider a customized heated platen sealer.  Photo inset (below) shows a heated platen sealer that was integrated into a full process automation for medical products.  In this case, the design was customer-specified for a machine that fits between several other components.  Automation-ready meant that variable heat controls, operational controls and automatic interchangeable heating platen removal was controlled from a central operating system via WiFi communications.

 

Machine Level

Machine-level automation increases the functionality of the heat sealing machine. 

Examples of Machine-level:

  • Automatic PocketMaker using clamping for full control at high speeds
  • Integrating Slot/Punching pre or post welding
  • Including a FlangeClamp to assist in material release
  • Welding a reinforcement vinyl edge strip to reduce fraying
  • Adding a zipper and/or keder strip fixturing with infinite control and positioning
  • Addition of a Laser Dot for alignment
  • Including Magnetic Grippers to hold materials in position

Machine-level automation can be added to any NovaPULS™ or NovaHEAT™ machine. 

Machine-level added functionality example is a NovaPULS™-294 configured with two bars of the same length separated by an infinitely variable distance. In this example [photo inset below], one of the two heat sealers was used to heat seal dissimilar materials and the other heat sealer used to make a tightly wound keder and heat seal the keder section to a heavy weight vinyl material.  Although considered machine-level automation, this same machine was designed for future full process automation migration.

Our Commitment

With more than 25 years experience you can be rest assured our engineers have had to tackle lots of exciting challenges.  Our record is 100% solved!  Which means we've always found a solution to better handle your production requirements as they integrate with synthetic and industrial woven fabric heat sealing. Another benefit of letting us help you automate your existing processes is our focus on Machine Learning.  People are good at many things.  Machines are better at others.  When we employ machine learning engineering practices, our heat sealers can, for example, self-maintain operations for reduced or to eliminate maintenance downtime.  So, by now we're sure you are beginning to realize that with a sealing technology faster and better than anything else you've seen coupled with automated solutions, your manufacturing costs can and will decrease while efficiencies increase.  Return on Investment (ROI) can be a very short time, making an investment in automation a simple one to make.

Affordable Automation is made possible with SuperFast Puls2™ Sealing Technology

Nova Products is an engineering design and solutions driven company. Our team of engineers include a physicist, mechanical engineers, an electrical engineer, materials engineering and an automation engineer. All designs are modeled using solid modeling and finite element analysis software. Together with intensive project management tools and a crew of machinists, technicians and administrators, we can tackle just about any heat sealing and/or heat sealing automation application.

We have direct experience working with proprietary pulse packet sealing technology. Additionally we have a thorough knowledge of wedge welding, heated platen (die) sealing.  And, if and when the need arises, our staff can also assist you with overall production improvements, whether machine based or not.  An automated solution can very often involve a better process.  We can help through our consulting services.

With Nova Products, Automation is only limited by your imagination.
