About ImSim

ImSim started life as a daughter company of the Portuguese SIRMAF firm, which designs and manufactures custom machinery, software, and robotics for the automotive industry.  After analyzing a wide variety of markets, SIRMAF decided that with their expertise and professionalism, it might be interesting to develop a motion simulator product that could be sold directly to the end-user.

The ImSim brand was born, and the new company started developing a 3DOF motion simulator that was not only very functional but also a feast for the eyes. In their own words, motion simulator aesthetics should reflect its purpose, and their initial design already proved that theory.

Over the years, InSim further developed the simulator and perfected both the functionality and aesthetics, while introducing new and innovative products.
