Flexibowl

A flexible part feeding system

FlexiBowl®

FlexiBowl® is a flexible part feeding device that can be easily integrated with every robot and vision system. Entire families of parts within 1-250 mm and 1-250 g can be handled by a single FlexiBowl® replacing a whole set of dedicated traditional feeders. Its lack of dedicated tooling and its easy to use and intuitive programming software allows quick and multiple product changeovers inside the same work shift.
