Flexibowl Robotic Parts Feeders

FlexiBowl® is an innovative flexible parts feeder that is compatible 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 vibrating bowl feeders. Its lack of dedicated tooling and its easy-to-use and intuitive programming allows quick and multiple product changeovers inside the same work shift. Production changes are made in a matter of seconds, without needing long mechanical adjustments. FlexiBowl® allows the orientation and separation of components, by the combined movements of a servomotor and an impulse generator.

The FlexiBowl® system is highly versatile and able to feed objects of any:

Geometry - Surface - Material

This is possible thanks to the vast choice of rotary discs, available in multiple colours, textures, resistances and degrees of surface adhesion.

The working principle is very simple and straightforward: the bulk feeder releases and lets the parts fall onto the FlexiBowl® surface and they are effectively separated by the combination of bidirectional rotation and the impulse generator. Once the parts are singulated, the camera recognizes them and sends the coordinates to the robot for the pick-up.

The set of instructions allows changing the speed parameters, the acceleration and the impulse frequency according to the parts geometry, to achieve an optimal result.

High Performance (over 80 ppm)
7 Kg Max Payload
Reliable and Lean Design
Low Maintenance
Intuitive Programming
Works in Extreme Environments
Ready to Ship
Suitable for Tangly and Sticky Parts

All the electronics and the optional backlight system are integrated. FlexiBowl® is paired with a vibrating bulk feeder and an optional, motorized hopper - both part of the system - so to achieve the necessary operating autonomy
