Collaborative Robot CNC Machine Tending

Cobot CNC Integration: The Five-Minute Synopsis

FPE Automation’s team of controls engineers has been impressed lately with Flexxbotics. Their FlexxCNC™ UR to CNC Communication Interface tool provides a seamless interface between a Universal Robots collaborative robot and a CNC machine, and even to the CNC machine’s peripherals.

To find out more about the FlexxCNC™ solution, FPE Automation’s Sandia Harrison talked to Tyler Bouchard, Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer of Flexxbotics. Their down-to-earth conversation is based on actual questions often asked by CNC shop owners. They discuss how machine shops, who can sometimes be reluctant to automate, should look at digitally transforming in 2023. Sandia asks Tyler why a machine shop owner should invest in CNC automation, and in the FlexxCNC™ solution, in particular.

Listen to his answers here:

The FlexxCNC™ solution is compatible with the majority of leading CNC machines, including Mazak, Fanuc, Haas, Okuma, Brother and more.  FlexxCNC™ gives you the ability to standardize a solution across your shop. Move your UR cobot and FlexxCNC™ from one machine to another as demand shifts or build your cobot fleet to service the variety of CNCs on your floor.
