Flexxbotics optimizes collaborative robot changeover through intuitive software and hardware robot productivity tools. Flexxbotics helps to redeploy robots to multiple jobs. This increases the robot's utilization and accelerates its ROI.

Their primary offering is the FlexxTend, an automated machine tending solution that works with the Universal RObots cobot line. The FLexxTend consists of the Flexx Reference, FlexxConnect, and Flexx CNC. 

Accelerate your cobot deployment process with the FlexxReference™ offset tool, enabling fast and easy redeployment onto different machines. With FlexxCNC™, you can interface with a wide range of CNCs, using G-code program loading and the ability to write macros directly to the CNC. Keep track of job revisions and effortlessly deploy G-code programs to both CNCs and robots using FlexxConnect™.

FlexxTend Components:


A standardized middleware and URCap designed to make a Universal Robot easily communicate with multiple CNC machines. Give you the ability to automate all aspects of running a CNC including: loading g-code, writing macros, cycle start/stop detection, and controlling peripherals.


A robotic software/hardware 6-degree offset tool that makes any Universal Robot flexible. Eliminates the need to tirelessly update robot waypoints/moves any time your robotic work cell shifts. The intuitive interface and easy locking mechanism allows any operator to conduct a robot redeployment.


FlexxConnect™ is a process control platform that creates a digital thread between your CNC work cells, people and business systems.

Understanding Robot Movement with Flexx Reference

When programming a robot, its movements are typically taught relative to its base. However, if the base moves, the robot's movements will be affected. This is where Flexx Reference comes in handy. It allows you to use reference points to give the robot real-world coordinates, making it easier to understand its location.

In addition, Flexx Reference also allows for software adjustments called robot offsets. These adjustments take into account the kinematic difference between the robot's original and new position, updating its movements accordingly.

The Flexx Reference offsets programs in six degrees of freedom - X, Y, Z, Rx (Roll), Ry (Pitch), and Rz (Yaw). It also comes in two accuracy versions - standard and high accuracy, with the latter boasting an impressive accuracy spec of +/-0.1-0.5mm.

One common question is whether the robot needs to be in the same place when using Flexx Reference. The answer is no - hardware and software are used to offset the program without needing to dock the robot. However, it's recommended to place markers on the floor to help with robot waypoint reach concerns.

Finally, if you have one robot and two stations, you'll need the Flexx Connect kit, which includes Flexx Reference and Flexx Beacon. The kit comes with one URCap per robot, one Mechanical Lockout kit, and one Station Interface Piece. If you want to add an additional station, you'll need another Station Interface Piece.
