SIM Automation Feeding-technology

Feeding technology: Feeding cells and feeding systems

The SIM feeding and sorting systems ensure the reliability of our assembly, testing and inspection systems. We custom develop, design, manufacture and adapt these systems based on customer specifications and the existing assembly system.

A combination of various feeding, handling, camera and sensor systems and robots can also be used in additional to individual systems.

These systems are used in a wide variety of fields in medical engineering and in the food, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics industries as well as in the automobile sector and in electrical engineering.



Automated cells O-ring feeding and assembling Feeding by means of a spiral conveyor (bowl feeder) Multi-lane linear sorting

Feeding with a bowl feeder

  • Product-specific SIM oscillating drives
  • SIM oscillating attachments, product-specific in polyamide or in stainless steel
  • Various coatings to improve conveying characteristics and protect parts
  • CAD-built sorting elements for rapid replacement and minimal set-up time when wear is apparent or when changing the variants of the pieces to be conveyed
