Simplexity defines industrial products as machines that our clients sell to other businesses or use themselves as a part of their
core technology. These products are typically produced in smaller volumes, and require more customization and integration than
commercial off-the-shelf components can offer. Simplexity’s industrial products often incorporate precision motion, sensing,
and advanced process controls. Our expertise in these fields differentiates our products from others produced by typical industrial
automation or system integration companies.
