Cimtrak® Shuttle Gate

Cimtrak® Edge Belt Shuttle Gates allow products to be conveyed across an opening in a production line. This allows operators to pass between machines in a line instead of walking around the end of the line. The shuttle remains retracted until a board is ready to transfer. The average cycle time is seven 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.
