Flex HMI is a technology developed by Lorenscheit Automatisierungs-Technik. It features a PC-based user interface that is customized for the respective application and makes tooling of your robot a breeze. Many SMBs use their machines for small batch productions of 1 to 100 workpieces. At these quantities, work-intensive tooling would be counterproductive - tooling has to be simple and straightforward.

Advantages

  • High efficiency, consistent product quality and increased productivity
  • Simplified operation during tooling of new workpieces
  • Database for loading workpieces that have ben set up previously (optionally with barcode scanner)
  • Modular system design for easy expansion and maximum scalability
  • Plug-and-Play connectivity based on pre-configured system consisting of HMI, robot and KNUTH FlexLoader

For the KNUTH FlexLoader an automatic door is required at the machine. If your machine does not have an automatic door, we offer a solution:

FlexCNCDoor

  • Automatic door kit for machine tools, electric
  • Brackets/adaptation for existing machines, length 39.4"
  • Automatic door for machine tools (available as single or double door)
  • Retrofitting solution for machines without automatic door to support conversion to automation
  • Drive with safe force limits for maximum operator safety
  • Control panel for manual operation, whereby the CNC door can stay on the machine
