Cimtrak® Board Inverter (Servo Motor)

The Cimtrak Board Inverter is an edge belt conveyor system that is designed to rotate flat panel products 180° around a horizontal axis. The system can also pass product through without inverting; accept, invert, and discharge from the same side; or invert and pass. Invert cycle time is approximately four seconds. 

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.

Each electrostatic dissipative Cimtrak product features:

  • Solid conveyor belt construction – Non-spliced, fiberglass-reinforced transmission belts for superior strength
  • Reliable DC stepper motors – Virtually service free and allows for precise adjustments to velocity, torque, and acceleration
  • Premium rail design – Cimtrak conveyor features zero gap between belt and edges to eliminate jams
  • Adjustable in-feed tips – Can be lengthened by up to 4’’ for easy install
  • Extruded aluminum framework – Provides a light and strong chassis
  • Industry 4.0 communication – Available with several PLC options and can be configured for smart industry 4.0 communication
