Cimtrak® Board Elevator

Cimtrak Board Elevators are designed to accommodate positive or negative elevation changes within a production line. Elevation changes within 16” (41 cm) are most common, but the standard unit can accommodate a change of up to 50” (127 cm). Longer strokes for this product are available. These systems are most commonly used for in-feed and discharge of wave solder systems, but they have also been actively used for pallet re-feed systems.

Simplimatic’s electronics design philosophies have been highly regarded by the electronics industry since 1988 and are known to have an average service life of more than 15 years.
