ErmaFlex at Castres (Tarn 81)

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

Project presentation

For this installation, our ERM Automatismes teams added an ErmaFlex 6-axis robot cell to the Lycée Borde Basse in Castres (81). This robotized cell completes the installation already carried out by our teams.

ErmaFlex is a didactic line that automates manufacturing, packaging and palletizing for different products and formats. This flexible, high-performance solution comprises autonomous, modular systems that can operate independently.
