Bespoke design and automation of material pallet handling solutions and hydraulic elevators is the core business of Atelier Dumon.

Atelier Dumon is a family owned company, based in Bruges, Belgium, specializing in internal goods moving systems, machinery and hydraulic elevators. For more than 60 years the company has been providing automatic solutions for production processes for a wide variety of applications. Atelier Dumon specialize in handling frozen goods products, but also have experience and reference sites in the distribution, food, beverage and transport industries.

Atelier Dumon have engineered mechanical handling solutions for Ardo since 1993. The first plant of Ardo where Dumon equipment was installed was at Ardooie, Dumon worked with Ardo to automate the different company processes. The collaboration between the two parties has had a far-reaching effect on production operation, which has led to economic savings and technological added value for the company of Ardo. These production enhancements have been expanded, over the past 20 years, to different parts of the Ardo business, other plants around Europe have benefitted, such as the plant of Hesbayefrost (in Geer) and sites in France, The Netherlands, Portugal, Denmark and Austria.

A requirement from Ardo was to eliminate the use of long reach trucks and automate the pallet handling system as much as possible. To cater for this Dumon engineered unique solutions, at the ground floor level docks, it is now possible to load and unload with pallet trucks. An extensive check on the shape and integrity of the pallet is essential to successful transport throughout the factory. During transportation, Dumon systems can integrate with robots, packaging machinery, label printers, wrappers, etc. Dumon specially developed, (for frozen vegetables), a drilling machine that separates frozen vegetables without damage before filling into packaging machines. After wrapping and putting into boxes, pallets are transported onwards to warehousing, or docks, already in the right sequence.

The engineering department at Atelier Dumon delivers bespoke systems to satisfy customer needs. Together with the client Atelier Dumon develop the best solution. The strength of Atelier Dumon is that they are a “one stop shop”. Atelier Dumon work with the client from the beginning of the project and then design, manufacture and install the whole project, including the electrical control and software.
