The flexible feeding technology from Afag combines short feeding system changeover times with the ability to work with a wide range of materials.

Your benefits when working with flexible feeding technology from Afag

  • High variant flexibility of the packaged goods being fed
  • Short changeover times within the feeding system
  • Active 2- or 3-dimensional manipulation of the conveyed material
  • A combination of in-house feeding technology components and electric handling systems forms the core components of the flexible feeding systems
  • Standardized vision and control concept as the basis of the flexible feeding technology
  • Unlimited reuse of Afag components within the flexible feeding system

How do flexible feeding systems work?

Within the flexible feeding system, the parts are conveyed from the hopper to the aflex or, alternatively, to the flip conveyor.

Based on our vibration technology, they are evenly distributed and made available for the vision system in the right position. Parts that can be gripped are detected by the vision system, picked up by the handling system and made available for follow-up processes.

Flexible feeding technology components from Afag

The flexible feeding technology components aflex qc and flip conveyor were developed for these complex requirements in the field of feeding technology for small and very small parts. They provide the highest level of flexibility for complex geometries and different batch sizes, and thereby increase production efficiency. Here is an overview of our flexible feeding technology components and their benefits:

  • Versatile uses of the component within a flexible feeding system
  • Simple installation and commissioning within the feeding technology
  • Short changeover times thanks to a quick-change system of the feeder sheet that does not require tools
  • Many integration options thanks to the modular concept and standard BUS interfaces
