The Flexx CNC Interface is a standardized middleware and URCap designed to make a Universal Robot easily communicate with multiple CNC machines. In order to truly run a robot on a CNC machine lights out, you need to automate all aspects of the process, including executing G-Code/M-Code, actuating vises, opening/closing doors, and managing stop/start cycles.
Creating a robust machine interface is complex, time consuming and costly. Not to mention, you often need to design different interface for each CNC brand and model. The Flexx CNC will be the the last Universal Robot to CNC interface you will need. The Flexx CNC Interface eliminates the complex and timely integration effort needed for your Universal Robot to communicate with your CNC machines. The modular hardware and software allows you to use one kitted solution for any machine communication controller.
Easily interface your Universal Robot to a singular CNC machine or have the ability to redeploy your robot easily to multiple CNC machines.
- G-Code and M-Code Execution
- CNC Peripheral Control (Vise, Door, Start/Stop Cycle)
- CNC Controller Library
- CNC program templates
Use the provided USB and upload the Flexxbotics executable file onto your relevant machines. Mount the Flexxbotics Middleware box onto your robot pedestal. Use the provided cabling to connect the Middleware to your robot and your CNC. Connect any DIO relays to peripheral devices such as vises, start/stop button etc..
We provide both an option to choose an Ethernet or DIO interface to your UR and CNC. Select which one you are using in the Flexxbotics provided URCap. Choose which machine you are running on within the URCap. Use the Flexx CNC nodes in the URCap to build your Universal Robot program. You can now easily run your CNC machine unattended with a Universal Robot with all aspects being automated
