Adept Technology, Inc: Feeder

The Adept FlexiBowl(R) 350 is an innovative feed solution for use with any Adept robot and vision system.

The feeder is designed to handle a wide array of loose small parts including parts of different shapes and materials. The FlexiBowl is capable of carefully and quickly feeding parts that are tangled, made of different materials, parts that are fragile cylindrical, or even oiled.
