Automated production, packaging and palletizing line, multi-product and multi-format


ErmaFlex is an educational production line made up of stand-alone, modular systems that can operate separately. Customers are free to build their own line to suit their needs and budget. The systems are accompanied by numerous sub-systems to increase the number of workstations. ErmaFlex brings electrical, pneumatic, hydraulic and mechanical technologies to the fore. It can be used to teach production control and production management, industrial maintenance, automation and robotics.
