Gebroeders DOMS located in Brecht is an SME specialized in mechanical engineering and automation. Our mission is to successfully innovate and automate the end-of-line processes in production plants and warehouses worldwide.
What characterizes us? The highest level of technology, a single point of contact for your entire project, and a highly customer-oriented approach. With the combination of more than 30 years of experience and our urge to be an innovator, we are an established value and a reliable partner for companies in many production industries.
The one constant in our history is the urge to work with the latest technologies and to do so in a strategic manner where we are always looking for the smallest footprint, maximum flexibility, and longest installation lifespan. To do so we are constantly maintaining and developing our expertises.
Our solutions for your facility
Each product is scalable and can be configured for low, mid, or high rate applications and are appropriate for small, medium, and large companies doing business in a variety of market sectors.
The RoboPAL system is designed to fulfil industry requirements. A standardized modular soft- and hardware platform based upon experience. This know-how brings a solution rather than engineering challenges to your production facility.
By installing the robot on a track, the working area is expanded. So more pallet positions or work range for your robots.
With the Automated Guided Vehicle DROID we manufacture solutions ranging from a single vehicle to integrated multi-AGV systems.
This adaptable intralogistics brings flexibility to your factory layout.
Helix is faster and more reliable than any elevator or lifts and requires less floor space than conventional conveyors Our modular design allows customization of the in- and outfeed.
Products specifically for the printing industry.
After the blanks run through the folder-gluer the batch separator stacks the blanks into consistent batches with the same amount of blanks.
From metal constructor to automator
Gebroeders DOMS was founded in 1980 as a two-person company. We started as an integrator of milking machines in agriculture. Soon this led to creating of mechanical parts and metal constructions in the civil landscape and infrastructure.
In the 1990's we shifted focus to the general industry by building custom-engineered constructions and machines such as turntables, shuttles, and pile turners for the printing industry. We started using AutoCAD, Inventor to engineer the machines in 3D designs and we opened an electrical department where we designed and manufactured the switchboards in-house.
Over the years we kept expanding our workshop by investing in machinery to produce the mechanical parts of our machines and constructions. So in the 2000's we relocated to Brecht, and prepared for the future. The bigger location gave us the space to house a sheet metal shop with a new laser cutting machine and the location gave us space to not just build machines but also total end-of-line intralogistical solutions.
Robotics entered our picture in 2010's as a pilot project we installed a welding robot in our workshop. After learning the programming language we started including robots in our solutions. (De-)palletising with robots is a flexible solution, stacking patterns can be added, your products are handled with care, and the installation becomes more compact, less infrastructure is needed to (de-)palletise.
2020 is the era of the AGV's. After building shuttles and automated vehicles we wanted to work with a new kind of navigation, navigation that doesn't require any markings, tags of magnets, only an eye to see the space. We found this in sensor navigation, the AGV maps the space, once the space is mapped the AGV locates itself within the map. By adding a loading station on the trajectory of the AGV, there is no limit to having a constant electric source.
We named these new AGV the Droid. The Droids make for a flexible solution and allows the client to restructure or reorganise without major changes and costs to their facility.
