Ars Automation FlexiBowl 500


The Ars Automation FlexiBowl 500 allows for the easy orientation and separation of components ranging from 5 to 50 mm in size and weighing up to 100 g. Separation and orientation are achieved through the combined movements of a servomotor and an impulse generator. The working principle is very simple and straightforward: the bulk feeder releases and lets the parts fall onto the FlexiBowl surface and they are effectively separated by the combination of bidirectional rotation and the impulse generator. Once the parts are separated, the camera recognizes them and sends the coordinates to the robot to be picked up.
