The future of automation is flexible robotics.
Deploy your Universal Robot for multiple applications with the Flexx Reference relative programming solution. Compatible with any UR robot, the Flexx Reference delivers precisely machined reference points and an intuitive software interface, to seamlessly implement a mobile robot or fixture solution. Whether it be reducing robot downtime, decreasing operator programming time or finding new ways to re-purpose your robot, the Flexx Reference can help make any work space more efficient.
- 6 Degree, high accuracy Mechanical Lockout
- Optional interface to the robust vention.io platform
- Relative programming
- Existing program waypoint/move update function, relative programming, feature programming, mobile solutions
How does it work?To set your first Flexx Feature (reference point) simply Free-Drive the UR into the Flexx Lockout Assembly (6-degree mechanical mating system). While in the Flexx Lockout, capture the coordinates with the click of a button in the Flexx Reference URCap Plugin. The Flexx Feature is automatically populated in the Flexx Reference Node, which is inserted into your program. Program the robot as normal then click update program and all of your waypoints and moves will be converted relative to the captured Flexx Feature. The Flexx Feature is forever remembered in space and in your program. The user is now allowed the flexibility to move the robot or work station without the need of reprogramming or docking stations, simply re-capture the Flexx Feature and start the program. In addition, the Flexx Reference will allow you to quickly re-calibrate after the costly maintenance of UR joint replacement.
