Flexxbotics aims to optimize colloborative robot changeover through intuitive software/hardware robot productivity tools. Your operators can adapt to changing demand… why should robots be any different. Our experience with over 125 installs in 3 continents has shown us manufacturers want more out of their cobots. At Flexxbotics, we are here to deliver to just that.

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.

Financial Benefits of a Mobile Collaborative Robot

Collaborative robots have opened the door for novel and innovative ways to automate a facility. From welding, polishing, dispensing, machine tending and more, cobots have expanded the way end users can utilize 6 axis robots. Cobots have introduced an entirely new way to apply 6 axis robotic arms; mobile redeployment. Their relatively easy programming and lightweight nature have laid the framework for end users to physically move the robot from one machine to another. Gone are the days of purchasing a robot, planting it in front of a job and repurposing your operators to other non-automated jobs.

So what exactly are the financial benefits a mobile 6 axis robot can provide in your facility as a business owner or floor manager? Consider the simple example of two machines (Machine A and Machine B) and one robot on Machine A.
