Engineered Vision Releases Flex-Bot Feeders

Columbus, Ohio - Engineered Vision announces the release of the Flex-Bot: A New Generation of Vision Flex Feeding Technology! The Flex-Bot provides a solution to a previously unsolved manufacturing dilemma of high mix part feeding. This limitation has stifled manufacturers ability to automate leaving manual labor in charge of dull and monotonous part feeding for anything less than ultra-high volume. The Flex-Bot offers an alternative to ultra-high volume single part bowl feeders with multiple part flexibility and additional orientation capability through robotic placement. With a standard hardware and software platform there has been a greater than 40% reduction in engineering hours required to develop a custom application and those savings are being passed on to the customer. With the ability to quickly adapt to an immense range of parts through Vibratory & Smart Auto-Tuning Technology as well as a point and click user interface, the Flex-Bot is the solution for today's current projects and tomorrow's ambitions. 

Utilizing the robust power of Epson® and the innovation of Engineered Vision, the Flex-Bot is a cross-industry solution for manufacturers of all sizes. Handling simple to complex parts sized 5 to 40 mm, the Flex-Bot can support a wide variety of materials across the plastic, rubber, and metal industries. Quick Parts Changeover allows for the Flex-Bot to easily integrate into manufacturing lines that produce multiple products of different shapes and sizes. Seth Brewer, Head of Business Development, stated that "The ability of the Flex-Bot to not only process parts of multiple sizes but also to easily become a part of any existing manufacturing line truly shows how this robotic cell is at the forefront of Vision Flex Feeding technology." The Flex-Bot uses unique directional vibration through multi-axis vibration technology for optimization in part control and singulation including part flipping. 

The Flex-Bot comes with an Equipment Base, SCARA Robot, Machine Vision System, Flex Feeder, Hopper, Robot EOAT, Safety System, HMI, Programming, and Installation. Additionally, Engineered Vision provides upgrade options to integrate an Indexing Table or Conveyor for part placement and/or assembly. The purchase of a Flex-Bot includes customized vision and robot programming to meet your unique application with a 1-year manufacturer warranty through Engineered Vision. While advanced automation technology typically holds a high price tag, the Flex-Bot comes in at a reasonable introductory price of $75,000.00. Chad Stroud, President, says “Turnkey deployments of flexible automation systems with this capability do not exist for $75,000. The Flex-Bot is going to help US Manufacturers compete in a global marketplace.”

Engineered Vision was founded in 2017 to develop and deploy advanced manufacturing technologies. Their priority is to make US Manufacturers competitive globally by increasing throughput, quality, and safety, all while decreasing costs. Engineered Vision typically deploys machine vision, robots, and custom machines in industries including: DoD, Automotive, Aerospace, Consumer Products, Pharmaceuticals, Electronics, and more. 

As an Epson® AutomateElite™ Gold Partner, Engineered Vision was able to create the Flex-Bot and begin educating businesses that could not automate before due to their product mix, in-house automation experience, and ROI.
