The automation of electronics in manufacturing demands
flexibility, reliability and speed. To meet the ever expanding
requirement for small parts feeding, ABB has developed the
FlexFeeder, a functional module for industrial robots to pick
up parts and implement applications like sorting and assembly.
The FlexFeeder can interface with either the IRC5
robot controller or any PLC controller.
Efficient and flexible
The FlexFeeder is available in two variants, the single and the
double. The larger unit increases the working time between
refills. Small internal gap design and integrated backlight options
increase the flexibility in feeding various small parts.
Compact design for time, space and cost saving
Both variants are designed to be compact to save on installation
space and shorten cycle times. Additionally, two or
more feeders can work side-by-side, eliminating the need for
separate vision systems.
