The first Glide-Line conveyors were shipped in 2011 and we have shipped over 3000 units since. We launched the “brand” in 2013 (website, logo, etc.) and started actively selling and marketing it as its own product line at the same time. Glide-Line is a brand fully owned by NCC Automated Systems, a 30+ year old company.
Glide-Line’s tag line is “Easy. Flexible. Precise. Fast.” We want the process to be easy, configured to your needs, with a very high-quality product and to do it in record speed. Our 21st century advanced design and manufacturing process allows us to accomplish this.
Glide-Line leveraged the open SOLIDWORKS API, the GoAutomate open-source automation tool, and Microsoft Excel software to introduce IMPACT!, the industry’s first in-context conveyor configurator, which combines access to solid modeling tools and snap-to mating functionality with prices, part numbers, and ordering capabilities in real time.
