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.
Unlike traditional vibratory feeders, which must be manually reset for each new part, the FlexiBowl combined with an Adept vision system can continuously accept and feed new parts significantly speeding product changeover.
Utilizing a direct-drive motor, the Adept FlexiBowl operates reliably and quietly and is extremely easy to operate. Its circular band tracking permits the removal of parts during movement delivering higher throughput and its unique design delivers a more flexible and efficient alternative to traditional vibration feeders.
