ANYFEED™ SXM50

General


The anyfeed SXM50 is a flexible bulk parts feeder with an integrated bulk storage bin that can hold components of arbitrary shapes and materials. When combined with flexfactory’s vision solution or and your robot of choice, the anyfeed SXM50 becomes a highly versatile robot feeding system that offers solutions for a wide range of application requirements. Controlled by the vision system, the anyfeed SXM50 uses its servo-electric drives to move the components into positions that can be easily picked by the robot.

The anyfeed SXM line of feeders is based on a feeding method patented by flexfactory that does not require high maintenance conveyor belts or expensive recirculating systems. The ‘first-in-first-out’ principle of the anyfeed SXM50 is an efficient and reliable handling method that ensures parts spend as little time as possible in the feeding system, waiting to be picked.

• Wide variety of parts – handles parts of arbitrary shapes, sizes and materials
• Maximum availability – parts don’t get jammed, no operator intervention
• Gentle parts handling – minimal stress for parts as no recirculation occurs
• Automatic emptying – minimal changeover times during product changeovers
• Simple installation – compact unit with all controls integrated
• Optimized feeding action – quick-change feeder plates for perfect part feeding and identification
• Simple layouting – the feeder’s narrow rectangular footprint is ideal for compact cell layouts
• Simplified service – all the anyfeed models in the SXM/SX range use the same servomotors
• Standardized communication – all the anyfeed models in the SXM/SX range understand the same commands
• Reproducible performance – regardless of which system you choose, anyfeed-based solutions deliver reproducible performance

Application areas

Perfect for the flexible feeding of parts in assembly, inspection, packaging, counting and machine-loading processes.

Feeders in the anyfeed SX/SXM series are not suitable for: foods, environments with explosion hazards or wet, very dirty or very oily parts.
