Next Generation of FlexLoader



Key benefits

Simplicity through automation

The FlexLoader M machine tending cells are extremely user friendly and quick to program, even without specific robotics expertise. New workpieces can be introduced in minutes, making “Batch Size One” a reality.

Digitalization made easy

Powerful yet easy to use Integrated software suit for machine tending operations with digitalization tools such as order management, downtime reporting & fleet management dashboards.

The power of modularity

The feeding modules is interchangeable and makes it easy to maintain, service and rebuild the FlexLoader M cell when needed.

 

60% Increase in machine utilization​

Robotic machine tending can prolong the production time with an extra unmanned shift with the possible to run multiple orders in one production run.

30% bigger workpiece buffer​

The new modular design makes it easy to tailor the buffer to fit both your footprint and manufacturing needs.

Prepared for 2D & 3D vision​

Select the perfect match for your workpieces. FlexLoader M can easily be configurated for either 2D-, semi-oriented 3D- or full random bin-picking.

    FlexLoader™ M Conveyor

    Makes it easy to load fragile workpieces with complex geometries into a machine tool by one or two conveyor infeed modules. The conveyors can be customized in different lengths depending on buffer need. Incredibly flexible solution thanks to the powerful yet easy to use vision system dedicated for machine tending.

    • Single One Door
    • Double Two Door
    • Double Customized
    • Double Open Front

    Key benefits

    • The conveyors can be customized in different lengths from 2 – 6 meters depending on buffer size and layout need.
    • No robot knowledge is required to operate the cell.
    • New jobs can be programmed in just minutes.
    • Fits small batches as well as large volume production. From series of 10s to series of 1000’s depending on the application.
    • Can run free from operator supervision for more than eight hours.

    FlexLoader™ M Tray

    The Tray module offers easy machine tending with or without vision guiding. The FlexLoader M Tray is a drawer solution offering easy machine tending. With a minimal footprint that allows it to be located almost anywhere, it is ideal for handling a variety of workpieces with variable shapes such as cubes, cylinders, plates and pipes. If required, vision can be added for more complex parts.

    • Tray 2 2 Drawer
    • Tray 3 3 Drawer

    Key benefits

    • Handling of workpieces with dimensions 13 – 250 mm.
    • Smart wizard enables new workpieces to be introduced in minutes with no need for robot programming skills.
    • Optional workpiece stacking for enhanced throughput.
    • The tray holds up to 133 workpieces enabling many hours of unmanned production. For example, 120 pieces with 6 minutes cycle time gives 12 hours unmanned production time per tray.
    • Interchangeable trays for quick refilling during machining.
