Flexxbotics Mission: Free your robot

Free your robot from the complexities surrounding a dynamic robotic work cell. The goal is to improve robotic processes and to break down the technical barrier needed to make the automation equipment as active as the operators.

Three maxims that drive and influence every product Flexxbotics build:

Everyone should have the privilege to operate a robot
Every robot should always be active
Every robot’s ROI should always be met

Flexx Reference

Do you deploy your robot on multiple jobs? Would a touch off tool for maintenance help? Do you evaluate prototype robot applications? 

Flexx Reference makes any UR flexible with a 6-degree lockout.

How does it work?

Set your Flexx Feature

Set your Flexx Feature or reference point by Free-Driving the UR into the Flexx Lockout Assembly (6-degree mechanical mating system).

Capture the Coordinates

While in the Flexx Lockout, capture the coordinates by clicking in the Flexx Reference URCap Plugin. The Flexx Feature is automatically populated in the Flexx Reference Node, which is inserted in your program.

Update Program

Program the robot as normal and then click update program. All of your waypoints and moves will be converted relative to the captured Flexx Feature. The Flexx Feature will be saved in your program.

Recapture the Flexx Feature

The user is now allowed the flexibility to move the robot or work station without the need of reprogramming. Simply re-capture the Flexx Feature and start the program.
