Integration as the Driver of Design
Suitable for both harsh and clean environments
FlexiBowl® is the flexible parts feeding system for automated production lines using industrial robot or cobots. It is patented and produced by ARS S.r.l. and sold in more than 40 countries worldwide, including through authorized distributors.
FlexiBowl® optimizes parts feeding by ensuring more parts are available for pick-up by the gripper in every cycle. The system improves overall feed rates, increases productivity and reduces changeover times.
How does the flexible system work?
The parts are fed onto a disc by one or more hoppers and positioned optimally. The combined action of the pulse generator and the rotational movement means every single part is quickly stabilized so that the robot can pick and place it as efficiently as possible.
Which plug-in do you need?
Communication between the robot, PLC or vision system and FlexiBowl® is actuated via Ethernet or I/O and made easier by a communication plug-in available for almost all industrial robots and PLCs.

from the ring
From the constant dialogue with the market, FlexiBowl®1200 is born.
A newer, larger, and more efficient model, designed to:
- boost the productivity of all lines that need to handle large-sized components;
- offer greater flexibility without sacrificing a compact and optimized layout.
Its vast surface makes it the largest flexible feeder on the market. The increased gripping area and the ability to handle a wider range of component allow the introduction of flexible automation in new processes.
Traditional operating mode, FlexiTrack, or Multiple Parts Feeding: in any mode, the vision system ensures control over all FlexiBowl® functionalities.Durable materials, numerous disc surface types to meet specific resistance and adherence needs, vibratory or conveyor hopper formats and dimensions optimized for different processes and production lines, optional dispersion tool, and quick-emptying function.
FlexiBowl® is employed in a variety of production settings by companies in all types of industries, and meets the specific needs of the production systems in which it is installed.
