Our services

We realize high-tech automatization concepts for Enterprises aimed to grow. We also know a thing or two about robotics, engineering & design.

From idea to concept

We don't just build whatever comes our way. The first step is to hand-pick only the best projects. And then no matter how good the idea sounds or how confident our client is, we put the product through a rigorous vetting process, polishing and streamlining the idea along the way. Only then, are we ready to start designing and building anything.

State of the art production

Good ideas incite perfect execution. One of the most important application areas for automation technology is manufacturing. With a combination of proven industrial components and our superior engineering team, Crea-Tech has created a wide range of top-level machines, which are known to be extremely reliable.

Building a relationship

For us a machine can be perfect when it's finished. Our relationship with our clients however, is never finished. Crea-tech likes to see her clients as partners; sharing the same vision and help accomplish their goals. We think there's always room for more innovation and new things. So don't forget to share your ideas!

A few recent projects

The difference between success and failure is a great team.

Since 2006 Crea-Tech and Spisa AB, have been working together. Spisa was looking for a better and efficient way to sleeve and pack multiple herbs. Crea-Tech developed a unique packing line with the 'Herb Brothers' as key players. The brothers are three herb pot sleeving machines with a speed of 2000 strokes per hour.
.

They harmoniously empty the transport tray, sleeve the potted herbs and fill the packing tray.  Each one has a unit of 2 sleeve storage compartments, the sleeve storage and funnel are adjustable for the right sleeve length. 

  • Speed of 2000 strokes per hour
  • Can add more sleeves while the machines are running.
  • Smarter, easier and faster
  • Teamwork, no human can compete with

 

Meet the brothers!

A few recent projects

At Bunnik Vriesia's, Crea-Tech employed two of the finest pick & place robots out there. Built with strength and endurance, Bromelia & Guzmania handle anything that comes their way.

Fast and Precise

Bromelia and Guzmania, named after monocot flowering plants, are designed to handle these kind of situations because of their controlled handling to avoid damage.

Strength and reach

No challenge is too big for this dynamic duo. With arms stretching twice their height, they are able to take on jobs that would be out of most's reach.

MAXIMIZING OUTPUT

In order to maximize output, they sometimes like the speed up the process on the assembly line. Unlike most heavy duty machines, their unique build allows them to be quick and precise with minimal error.

Teamwork

In a synchronized fashion, the duo works together to fill a full tray of 6 plants in only a few seconds. As an extension of your team, Bromelia & Guzmania will help you get all your jobs accomplished in lightning speed time.

A few recent projects

For our client Simonato in Italy, we developed a unique sleeving line with sleeving and tray filling machines.
To maintain Simonato's high quality, every plant is manually checked before sleeving.
The employee places the plant in a special cup that does stabilize not only the pot, but also the plant.

We adjusted the sleeving machine to Simonato's award-winning sleeves for perfect presentation.
Our automatic tray filler is completely integrated into the sleeving line and integrated with our tray denester.
Filled trays are buffered and ready for transport.

The complete line shifts between tray and sleeve sizes by the push of a button.

  • 1600 plants per hour (can be up to 2000 in other cases)
  • Different sleeve and tray sizes
  • High-quality presentation
  • Adjustable to paper sleeves
  • Modular integration with other Crea-Tech machines, such as;
    • Pick-up robot
    • Camera sorting
    • Trolley loader

Output and speed

Sleeve labeling can be labor-intensive and monotone work. Crea-Tech created a solution to improve the labeling process. We proudly present the Sleeve Labeler, a solution to improve the output and speed up the pace. The sleeve labeler has several options to fulfill your specific needs — for example, an extra applicator to apply a second label or printing directly onto the sleeve.
.

At Crea-Tech, we do not only supply you with the sleeve labeler but also help you buying sleeves that are suitable for automation while keeping costs low.

  • 2500 to 4000 sleeves per hour
  • Every label in the same position
  • Easy shifting between sleeves
  • One or two applicators
  • Optional printing on label or printing directly on the sleeve

About us

Cees van der Laan needed to find a suitable job to take care of his family of 17. While that was a job in itself, Cees found himself starting an Air Swing business at the local fair. Little did he know, this would give way to the start of something much bigger than swings.

Shortly after, Cees was the owner of three additional Air Swings which also needed proper trucks to transport them from town to town. Paul, one of Cees’s nine sons, was driving one of these trucks at night. At day he would seek out new rides at fairs all around the country. Occasionally, one of the old trucks would break down but before sending it to the garage, Paul would always take a look at it first to see if he could fix it. 

Paul developed a technical know-how by taking everything apart and trying to locate the problem. He would drive to Eindhoven to the Dutch Truck Factory (DAF) to gain knowledge in where to look and how to fix any issues he came across. Paul always said, “If you don’t try, you can’t fix anything!”

...

Paul took an opportunity to work in the UK mounting central heating in Greenhouses throughout the UK and USA. Later love, marriage and children made him want to stay in Holland more.

In Horticulture he noticed growers were beginning to change to more industrial pot plant factories, yet most were still working with traditional nursery equipment.

Paul saw this gap as an opportunity to launch Crea-Tech in 1998. After relocating back to Holland, Paul started his mission to create more control over the production process aiming towards less maintenance, increased innovation and industrial automation. Fast-forward to today, Crea-Tech has grown to be a leading innovator in the Horticulture industry. Customers have become partners by sharing ideas and creating new solutions together.

...

We believe that automation only leads to more labor, contributing to a better nature by producing faster and more effecient and grow faster. Humans will still be needed in the workforce: the total productivity gains will only come about if people work alongside machines. That in turn will fundamentally alter the workplace, requiring a new degree of cooperation between workers and technology. Growth is the result of working together.

News

Crea-Tech recently installed a spacing unit for trays in the USA. Every year around valentine, there is a peak in demand for small pot roses. These pot roses are grown in trays and need spacing. The spacing also created a high peak in labor demand for a short period. With labor becoming more and more scarce, Crea-Tech got the request to find a solution in automation.

The infeed of empty trays is currently done manually, but an automatic tray destacker and infeed is installed this year.
