Large & Small Part Flex Feeding Solutions
Large Part Flex Feed System
CDS LIPE has a complete line of Flexible Feeders for a wide range of part, package or material types each designed to automatically distribute from a random bulk supply sorce to a vision guided robotic system.
Flex Feeding is especially useful for both small and larger parts, packages or materials with difficult geometry or that are fragile. Large families of simialer parts or packages can be handled within a single flex feeder without tooling changes. Each Flex Feed system incorporates a method to distributing the parts randomely across a surface so that vision inspection or robots with vision guidance can then handle those parts in the correct orientation. This is call the part flow pattern. The part flow pattern is critical to achieving maximum pick yield in either pick on the fly or pick field of view mode. When possible those parts not selected due to overlap or incorrect orientation CDS-LIPE system attempt to reorient parts to mimimize recirculation.
