feedbot – the fastest way to ramp-up your production

flexfactory has combined a robot, feeder, vision system, gripper technology and operating software to develop the highly flexible and user-friendly feedbot automation system. Thanks to this all-in-one solution, users can set up new parts without having to carry out programming work.

The standardized feedware hardware and software platform enables users to continuously integrate their experience and new functions for future applications. Usually, programming is only required when customer-specific requirements can’t be met using the standard functions of the feedbot.

feedbot is available as a standalone solution or can be integrated into production lines and comes in a range of sizes and designs. What’s more, it supports all the feeders in the anyfeed range. flexfactory supplies turnkey feedbot solutions that are adapted to the specific tasks involved, including on-site startup.
