Cost-effective automation

The low acquisition costs and rapid integration of the ZiMo into existing processes enable cost-effective automation even for small, medium and frequently changing batch sizes. Profit from faster cycle times and increased quality as well as productivity – whether you are dealing with semi-automated human-cobot collaboration or fully automated production processes.


With a wide portfolio of available accessories and free choice of robot, you can adapt ZiMo to your individual needs. The variable set-up and fast changeover times guarantee maximum flexibility in your processes and enormous potential for modernizing your production processes. Expand the workbench of the flexible robot cell with components, with complete freedom according to your ideas and how they meet your requirements.
