Why FlexiBowl?

FlexiBowl is an innovative device for bulk singulation of components. It does not work with vibration, but through the combined actuation of servomotor impulse generator. Once bulk components are presented on feeder surface with the right orientation, the vision system can locate them and send coordinates to the robot for pick up.

FlexBowl, is capable of feeding entire families ofparts and does not require any retooling cost for product changeovers: product cchanges are trouble-free and can be made in a matter of seconds.
