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

Some say and believe, ‘’there is a reason for everything’’. We believe it when we see it and especially when we get to manufacture it. This is exactly what happened when we created Bolt.

He got his name due to his speed, and because he is handling hydro cloth.

Bolt is built on a skid frame, which in this case, placed next to our customers box machine.

The purpose why he has a reason to go up in the morning, is to fully automatically place a hydro cloth on top of the herbs inside the boxes they are packed in. When the box machine is slower, he will automatically move slower. When he notices that the box machine moves faster, he will speed up.

The relationship between Bolt and the box machine, was love at first sight. 

  • Automated speed adjustment
  • Can handle up to 1000 kg boxes

Long, tall and strong

We got challenged by a customer, he needed a machine with high capacity and smooth movement for his current situation. He came to us for a solution. We introduced Long John. Long John is an extended pot robot, filling and picking on the long side of growing containers.
.
  • Speed: 218 strokers per hour
  • Capacity: 5000 plants per hour
  • Sick days since 2012: Zero
  • Can handle different pot sizes

See John in action!

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 CreaTech 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, CreaTech 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.

Testimonials

Effective and timely feedback is a critical component of a successful collaboration.

CreaTech is important for the horticulture, as there are only a few companies prepared to take on new technical developments within our branch. CreaTech has become an important discussion partner for Spisa in improving technical solutions and productivity. The future winners are the companies that will embrace new developments in a focused manor to increase yield and reduce man hours. For us is CreaTech a partner in this evolution.
