Packing & Material Handling


The need for smarter, safer and automated systems for handling and packing products continues to evolve. SDC tackles this growing industry concern by designing and building fully automated, custom packing and material handling machines that meet and exceed safety regulations and production requirements. Our technical capabilities and expertise include:

High-Speed Parts Handling Machines

Orient and output parts for packing and assembly.

Automatic Packing Equipment

Combines machinery and materials to efficiently and quickly group and pack products.

Palletizing and Stacking Systems

Quickly load and stack products on pallets for faster, more cost-effective shipping.

Tray Handling Systems

Automatically unload or load trays of parts and accurately track them throughout the automated system

Parts Feeding, Orienting, and Escaping Systems

Feed, transfer and orient bulk fed parts.

Pick-and-Place Systems

Pick-and-place systems quickly take products from one location to another with high accuracy.

Shuttle Systems

Automatic storage and retrieval systems that deliver products on track.

Accumulation Conveyor Systems

Custom, versatile systems to ensure a continuous supply of product.

Proprietary Technology SDC FlexFeeding

Through years of experience with designing and building automated material handling machines, SDC developed a proprietary FlexFeeding system. Our FlexFeeding system takes bulk fed components and uses a combination of vision guided robotics and conveyor systems to quickly and accurately execute machine pick-and-place functions.

A key advantage of our proprietary Flex Feeder design is that the system is flexible in all aspects. The system can be adapted and programmed to fit fast or slow applications, big or small parts, any part color, and many other part variations that are traditionally difficult to automatically feed.
