iCIM 3000 – the complete training system with potential

iCIM 3000 – the complete training system with potential


Flexible system design  


The unique object-oriented approach of the iCIM systems facilitates maximum flexibility when it comes to designing systems. The stations are positioned along the conveyor based on the space available – you decide the configuration. We also optionally supply transport systems in special sizes or with sorting gates and alternative tracks.

Training included  


With iCIM 3000 you are not just purchasing an excellent training platform – you are also purchasing qualified training by our experts, the purpose of which is to equip you for the continued use of the system. The step-by-step training introduces the subsystems and their interfaces. Once you get to that stage, integrating them into a complete system is virtually child's play. 

iCIM 3000 system description

Automatic warehouse, assembly station, testing station and CNC machines are combined into a flexible production system using a pallet transport system. Each station removes its designated pallet from the conveyor, processes the materials upon it and then replaces it on the conveyor. The cell computer coordinates control of the pallets to the workstations and their start in accordance with the planned process.  

Control technology and communication

Each individual station has its own controller and can therefore also be used on its own for training purposes. In accordance with the latest technological trends, networking of the system is performed using Ethernet to ensure open interfaces and extendability.

Training aims:

  • Industrial communication and networks
  • Cell control and process planning
  • System and robot simulation
  • PLC and fieldbus technology
  • Positioning technology and servo drives
  • Handling and robot technology
  • CNC programming and simulation
  • CAD/CAM and DNC
  • Pneumatic and electropneumatic components
