The RoboFlex FF framework holds the intelligent bulk flex feeder and a vision-based robot-guidance system. A pre-feed hopper dispenses a thin layer of parts onto the backlit pick-up area. Selectable feed cycles are commanded to advance, separate and/or flip parts for robot presentation. This minimizes the amount of floor space used. The cell layout is flexible to allow access to your machine tool for operator set-up and process maintenance.

The RoboFlex FF is simple to operate. The operator pours un-machined parts into the pre-feed hopper. A flexible process is linked via the vision system to dispense a thin layer of un-machined parts onto a backlit pick surface. Pick surface can feed forward, backward or vibrate in place to separate discrete parts. A bottom strike can be programmed to flip parts that are upside down. Parts will automatically process until the parts run out.
