Mini Flextrack Automation System


Vacuum Track

  • System only uses one vacuum track for easier loading and cost reduction.
  • Configurable to any length
  • Stiffer vacuum rail to accommodate higher reaction forces
  • Six-inch wide vacuum cups for higher reaction forces.
  • Integrated vacuum sensors, monitored by machine controller



  • Generic X and Y positioning system
  • Onboard controller needs no control cabinet and umbilical is very small
  • Entire system runs off stand 110V plug-in
  • USB and Ethernet connections
  • Run from onboard touch screen pendant or remotely from PC

mini flextrack x-axis drive


  • Provides clamping and normalization control
  • Reversible – can be loaded to carriage in either direction
  • Up to 8″ stroke, longer with customization
  • Modular design: Any array of end effectors can be loaded for different tasks (drilling, inspection, sealing, riveting, fastening, etc.)
  • Increased y-axis travel (eight inches)

End Effectors

  • Generic interface allows for different end effectors for varying production capabilities
  • Light duty (on the right in picture) designed for smaller than 5/16” diameter holes.  Uses a pneumatic drill motor with ranges from 20k to 3,500 RPM.  Collet interface for tool holders
  • Heavy duty (on the left in picture) fully electric spindle for controlled feeds and speeds with HSK 32A tool interface.  Up to 7/16” diameter holes in aluminum
