flexfeeder X185

The X185 is one of three newly developed feeders of the flexfeeder product family mark the current state of flexible feeding technology. With fully integrated camera and toplight tower, the flexfeeder systems drastically reduce commissioning times compared to all previous systems due to their ready-to-use wired system. The integrated touch screen simplifies parameterization and operation and provides valuable data on system performance during ongoing production.
The fully integrated camera and control system with included touch screen, based on the latest feedware XOS software, also makes every flexfeeder the ideal partner for collaborative robots.
Our customers master the technology we deliver completely independently. Included in the scope of delivery of each system are drivers for almost every common industrial robot. Training for the commissioning of all flexfeeder systems takes only 1.5 days and can be carried out on site if desired.
