How It Works

1. Set Your Flexx Feature

To set your first Flexx Feature (reference point) simply Free-Drive the UR into the Flexx Lockout Assembly (6-degree mechanical mating system).

2. Capture the Coordinates

While in the Flexx Lockout, capture the coordinates with the click of a button in the Flexx Reference URCap Plugin. The Flexx Feature is automatically populated in the Flexx Reference Node, which is inserted into your program.

3. Update the Program

Program the robot as normal then click update program and all of your waypoints and moves will be converted relative to the captured Flexx Feature. The Flexx Feature is forever remembered in space and in your program.

4. Recapture the Flexx Features

The user is now allowed the flexibility to move the r obot or work station without the need of reprogramming or docking stations, simply re-capture the Flexx Feature and start the program.
