Automation Platforms

We provide turnkey, custom-made printing and assembly automations under the brandname Grauel. By offering various automation systems, Continuous Motion (CMS), Indexing Motion System (IMS) and Flexible Motion System (FMS), we are able to provide our customers with tailor fit solutions.

  • Linear and Round Indexing (IMS)
    Our Linear Indexing Platform is divided in two categories: Round Indexing (CMS) and Linear Indexing (LCS). We mainly use these systems when it comes to assembly and/or printing for annual volumes up to 30.000.000 parts per year.
  • Continuous Motion (CMS)
    For higher yearly volumes we apply our high speed Continuous Motion Concept, both for printing and assembly processes.
  • Flexible Motion System (FMS)
    The Flexible Motion System does what it says: it guarantees maximum flexibility! The key in FMS is the fact that the product carriers are independently controlled, which enables processing of different cycle times within one machine.
