SMALL COMPONENTS / SHORT CYCLE TIMES
MiniFlex is a compact feeder for small to medium-sized components. It replaces manual tending and other feeders when a short cycle time is required.
MiniFlex is quickly and easily installed or moved.
The whole cell, including the robot, is built on a single baseplate and takes up very little space.
With the right robot and ABB’s own vision system, MiniFlex is very flexible. Components are poured into a buffer, then vibrated forward to the camera conveyor belt where they are picked up automatically. The robot finds the parts using our vision system PickMT.
Like ABB’s other robot cells, MiniFlex is extremely easy to operate. It doesn’t require any mechanical adjustments and changeover time is short. The operator will be able to set up MiniFlex to feed new components after three days of training.
- Profitable even when used for only one shift
- Built on a single baseplate, easy to install
- Very suitable for castings
