FlexLoader™ FP 300

Function package for flexible machine tending

FlexLoader FP 300 is a compact and proven function package for machine tending and assembly operations, preconfigured and ready to use for fast integration. The solution is a combination of robust hardware and intelligent vision software. It is an ideal solution for instance to tend small workpieces to transfer machines with short cycle times.

It replaces manual tending and other feeders when a short cycle time is required. FlexLoader FP 300 is quickly and easily installed or moved. The whole cell, including the robot, is built on a single baseplate and takes up very little space.

With the right robot and FlexLoader Vision system, the robot cell is very flexible. Workpieces are poured into a buffer, then vibrated forward to the camera conveyor belt where they are picked up automatically.

Like all FlexLoader robot cells, FlexLoader FP 300 is extremely easy to operate. It doesn’t require any mechanical adjustments and changeover time is short. The operator will be able to teach in new workpieces in under 10 minutes for FlexLoader FP 300 after just a few days of training.
