In a groundbreaking announcement, Flexxbotics introduced its patent-pending FlexxCORE technology, enabling robots to securely connect and communicate with Haas Automation equipment in the smart factory. This cutting-edge technology offers more powerful, flexible, and open connectivity than ever before.


Flexxbotics' robot machine tending is now compatible with the entire range of Haas Automation machine tools, including vertical and horizontal machining centers, CNC lathes, rotary tables, five-axis, and specialty machines.


Through Flexxbotics, next-generation manufacturing environments running robotics with Haas Automation equipment achieve higher throughput, increased yields, and greater profit per part.


The FlexxCORE technology allows robots to securely connect and communicate with Haas Automation equipment in the smart factory. Flexxbotics' compatibility includes the Haas Next Generation Control, as well as Haas Serial and I/O for interfacing with both current and older models.


"We understand that robots need to work with the CNC machines that manufacturers already have in place, not just with the new, latest, and greatest equipment they want to buy in the future," said Tyler Modelski, Co-founder & CTO of Flexxbotics. "That's why Flexxbotics includes older connection methods and protocols, as well as today's most modern approaches."


In addition to compatibility with the Haas Next Generation Control, Haas Serial, and Haas I/O, Flexxbotics is compatible with a wide range of open standard protocols, including OPC/UA, MTConnect, Modbus-TCP, TCP/IP, Ethernet/IP, and DeviceNet, along with proprietary protocols such as FOCAS2/FOCAS, MELSEC, Profibus/Profinet, and many more.


Flexxbotics' workcell digitalization is the backbone of the Smart Factory, delivering robot-driven manufacturing at scale with autonomous process control for advanced machining operations.


Flexxbotics' SaaS/hybrid architecture also runs both online and offline so production continues with or without internet access, and Flexxbotics works with existing business systems such as CAD/CAM, SCADA/HMI, IIoT, MES, ERP, PLM, and others for complete synchronization.


A full set of bidirectional communication, transform, and routing capabilities are available in Flexxbotics for the robots and Haas machine tools that are connected, including loading PLC programs, sending instructions, updating parameters, and status awareness depending on the equipment's capabilities so the robots control and command the smart factory equipment.


"With Flexxbotics, robots go beyond simply talking to the machinery; the robots control and command the machines for maximum efficiency and production optimization," said Tyler Bouchard, Co-founder & CEO of Flexxbotics. "We see a future where robotics play the central role in Industry 4.0 with the advent of robot-driven manufacturing."
