The anyfeedSXM240 is a flexible bulk parts feeder with an integrated bulk storage bin that can hold components of arbitrary shapes and materials. When combined withflexfactory’s vision solution or and your robot of choice, theanyfeedSXM240 becomes a highly versatile robot feeding system that offers solutions for a wide range of application requirements. Controlled by the vision system, theanyfeedSXM240 uses its servo-electric drives to move the components into positions that can be easily picked by the robot.
TheanyfeedSX line of feeders is based on a feeding method patented byflexfactorythat does not require high maintenance conveyor belts or expensive recirculating systems. The ‘first-in-first-out’ principle of theanyfeedSXM240 is an efficient and reliable handling method that ensures parts spend as little time as possible in the feeding system, waiting to be picked.
Perfect for the flexible feeding of parts in assembly, inspection, packaging, counting and machine-loading processes.
Feeders in theanyfeedSX/SXM series are not suitable for: foods, environments with explosion hazards or wet, very dirty or very oily parts.
Wide variety of parts–handles parts of arbitrary shapes, sizes and materials
Maximum availability – parts don’t get jammed, no operator intervention
Gentle parts handling– minimal stress for parts as no recirculation occurs
Automatic emptying– minimal changeover times during product changeovers
Simple installation– compact unit with all controls integrated
Optimized feeding action– quick-change feeder plates for perfect part feeding and identification
Simple layouting– the feeder’s narrow rectangular footprint is ideal for compact cell layouts
Simplified service– all theanyfeedmodels in the SXM/SX range use the same servomotors
Standardized communication– all theanyfeedmodels in the SXM/SX range understand the same commands
Reproducible performance– regardless of which system you choose, anyfeed-based solutions deliver reproducible performance
