What is FlexiBowl®?

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.
