FlexiBowl (Flexible Feeding)

FlexiBowl® Flexible Part Feeding System

FlexiBowl® is an innovative device for bulk singulation of components. It does not work with vibration, but through the combined actuation of servomotor and impulse generator. Once bulk components are presented on feeder surface with the right orientation, the vision system can locate them and send coordinates to the robot for pick up.

FlexiBowl® is capable of feeding entire families of parts and does not require any retooling cost for product changeovers: product changes are trouble-free and can be made in a matter of seconds.

FlexiBowl®: An Efficient and Reliable Solution

FlexiBowl® is highly versatile and suitable to feed a wide variety of parts, regardless of:

  • Geometry (cylindrical, complex 3D shape)
  • Surface (smooth, sticky, tangled, etc.)
  • Material (delicate, fragile, rubber and silicone)
  • Weight and Dimensions (metal moulded and sheared parts)

Several comparison studies have proven FlexiBowl® to be suitable to feed parts in a more uniform, continuous and efficient way. Parts can even be fed during continuous movement using circular belt tracking.

FlexiBowl® works efficiently and without failures even with parts having burrs or size variations. CIMTEC’s laboratory is outfitted with FlexiBowl®, vision, and robots to assist in evaluating your application.
