Aagard is a world-class manufacturer of industrial automation and packaging machinery with an intense focus on production capability and total project success. With facilities in Alexandria, Minnesota, we design, manufacture, and prove each system we build. Our growing work force of creative and highly skilled employees allows us to develop innovative solutions and build efficient machinery of the highest quality.

Aagard’s combination systems increase productivity while minimizing floor space, labor, and utility requirements. Using proven technologies, Aagard has developed unique packaging solutions that combines sleevers, retort loaders/unloaders, cartoners, case packers, palletizers, retail ready, and many smaller unit operations all into a common frame and controls system.

With Aagard’s intense focus on “Production Capability” on every project, many aspects including safety (category 3 safety with locking guard doors), capability (high performance, positive transfers, and fast auto-recovery from stoppages), and reliability (machine cannot damage itself, smooth and optimized operation of each device) are carefully considered. This starts at the beginning with a detailed engineering planning phase including detailed timing charts per SKU as well as 3D design reviews with your team. Later, this planning is proven with a thorough testing phase focusing not only on normal operation, but especially on machine recovery. Each machine is proven with a complete internal FAT process. This focus on “Production Capabilities” enables Aagard to partner with our customers for total project success.

We welcome the opportunity to demonstrate how we create, control, and analyze motion in proven applications that you may not have seen before. Let Aagard use our innovation to create the optimum solution for your next project!
