Advantage matrix positioning systems for the pharmaceutical industry

Our expertise in positioning solutions goes back to 1963, when SIKO GmbH was founded. We provide the complete range of possible positioning devices for pharmaceutical production machines: cost-effective Mechanical position indicators,electronic and monitored position displays as well as fully automated positioning drives. Each SIKO positioning solution provides individual technical and economic advantages.

Increased machine efficiency thanks to reduced downtimes

The more formats in pharmaceutical machines change and the higher your quality standards, the more productive and efficient the use of monitored or automated positioning solutions is.

Mounting compatibility

The SIKO position indicators DA09S, AP05, AP10 as well as the compact actuators AG05 and AG06 are combinable and mechanically interchangeable. We call this mounting compatibility. This results in a significant advantage. You can define the degree of automation of your machine individually. It is also effective to equip axes that require frequent adjustment with our compact actuators, and axes that only require infrequent adjustment with inexpensive position indicators.

Retrofitting is also possible at any time. The following applies: All three devices have the same hollow shaft diameter as well as a quasi-identical mounting contour
