Flexible Grippers & Peripherals
In order to be able to automate small series production and reduce profitable series size and profitable batch size for an industrial robot, flexible grippers are required for fast change.
One gripper for multiple use cases
Reduce size for profitable serie size & batch size
In order to be able to automate small series production and reduce profitable series size and profitable batch size, flexible grippers are needed. These grippers can be quickly adjusted, work for wide products, and allow fast and easy programming.
Search and find details without vision
OpiFlex offers flexible solutions for finding details completely without vision with the help of smart sensors and algorithms. Fully integrated with our easy programming and safety without fences.
Flexible and Safe Grippers
In order to be able to automate small series production and reduce the profitable series size and profitable batch size, flexible grippers are needed that can be quickly adjusted for a large product width. Also, fast and easy programming is needed. It is very important not to lose details, not only important if you use without a fence but also for use with fences.

OpiFlex offers flexible and safe grippers that are developed to handle a large product range. We offer a wide range of flexible grippers with vacuum, fingers or magnet based on components from leading manufacturers. All grippers can be equipped with manual or automatic tool changers.
All OpiFlex grippers have a built-in safety solution that complies with the ISO ISO1818-2 PLd category 3 structure, which ensures that we can drive safely without fences with high loads and high speeds.
Find and Meassure Details with Smart Sensor Search or Vision
By keeping order and structure on the inmaterial, solutions are often not needed to find the material, but a gripping or orientation station is sufficient. In some cases, solutions are desired to find details, they then need to be very flexible and robust, especially for small series.
OpiFlex offers flexible solutions for finding details completely without vision. We have developed a flexible and robust robot solution that with the help of smart sensors and algorithms finds details without having to use vision. The solution is fully integrated with our simple and easy programming, so no configuration is needed. Our solution can also automatically measure and check measurements.
We also offer 2D vision solutions, from leading suppliers. We do not normally recommend using vision, like many integrators. Vision often means a lot of challenges, especially for small series and high mix and low volume as it requires very good lighting conditions as well as a lot of configuration and tuning per product.
Even if you have a flexible robot, it often needs some aids to cope with its tasks, it can be solutions to get the right orientation on a detail or help to turn a detail. A trend is to pick and leave directly on pallets instead of using tracks, which require staff to lift on and off, one we offer n- and out-tracks if desired.
OpiFlex offers flexible peripherals, for example
- manual or automatic tool change systems
- embracing stations
- orientation stations
- active and passive turning stations
- inbound and outfields
All solutions are developed to handle a large product width without complicated racks.
Increase Productivity with Flexible Mobile Robot, Fenceless Safety, and Easy Programming
OpiFlex solves the challenge of automating the mega trend with high mix and low volume with flexible robot cells and drives the third robot revolution towards completely new possibilities.
OpiFlex flexible solution and easy programming can be used for most applications in all industries and provides benefits for both small and medium-sized companies, Tier1 and global groups.
OpiFlex is a very cost-effective solution that is future-proof and can increase the gross margin more than ordinary robot solutions.
