SMALL COMPONENTS / SHORT CYCLE TIMES

miniflex™

MiniFlex is a compact feeder for small to medium-sized components. It replaces manual tending and other feeders when a short cycle time is required.
MiniFlex is quickly and easily installed or moved.

The whole cell, including the robot, is built on a single baseplate and takes up very little space.
With the right robot and SVIA’s own vision system, MiniFlex is very flexible. Components are poured into a buffer, then vibrated forward to the camera conveyor belt where they are picked up automatically. The robot finds the parts using our vision system PickMT.

Like SVIA’s other robot cells, MiniFlex is extremely easy to operate. It doesn’t require any mechanical adjustments and changeover time is short. The operator will be able to set up MiniFlex to feed new components after three days of training.
