The Flexibowl is a unique Flex Feeding system unlike any other in the industry in that it doesn’t work on a vibratory technology basis. At its core, there is a servo motor to move a synthetic “donut shaped” surface. The surface material and motion parameters are used in a sequence to spread parts out and keep them separated in a back lighted/top lighted area so that a vision and robot can pick them oriented. Wrong oriented parts which are not picked are recirculate around where a flip device is used to re-orient them. There are many options on different sizes, surface materials, divert methods, clean room models, quick clean out options and bulk feed hoppers. These systems are simple and do not use part geometry to orient the parts for picking, they are truly flexible and are the next evolutionary step in parts feeding technology.
