As per 1 January 2019, our Sidel and Gebo Cermex business units form a single team called Sidel.


  • Complete range of robot loading arms to meet all speed/payload/layout requirements
  • Simplification of product collation for improved access as well as greater speed/ease in format changeovers
  • Customized, lightweight gripping tooling - flexibility and versatility of the robot concept


Product handling


For product handling, our robotic machines perform pre-collation, batch forming, product flow management and product assortment.

Thanks to their lightweight tooling, these machines provide a 30% reduction on average in relation to traditional gripping heads, due to the smart association of composite materials (carbon, aluminum in a honeycomb structure) and the use of agglomerated polymers by 3D printing.

Various types of gripping tooling can be used to preserve products: membranes, suction cups, grippers, etc., while the choice of loading arm is optimized in order to make energy savings. An "intelligent" head safety mechanism (depending on the application) protects the tooling parts.


Case packing


In case packing, we offer a complete range of loading arms. These are highly versatile solutions that are perfectly adapted to bags, stand-up pouches (Doypacks®), flowpacks, etc. These products can be handled upright or lying flat.

Our loading arms perform precise movements to protect products whatever their contents (liquid, solid, pasty, viscous) and features (cap, straw, etc.), while their modular design allows them to be scaled in accordance with the required speed and the product contents/weight.
