Vention and Flexxbotics have come together to offer robotic workcell digitalization in next-generation machining environments.

Customers can reportedly benefit from the combination of Flexxbotics’ robot machine tending solution with Vention’s Manufacturing Automation Platform offering. Customers will use Vention’s cloud-robotic tools and modular automation hardware to design tailored machine tending robot cells, and then, take advantage of Flexxbotics‘ machine tending SaaS/hybrid solution and professional services for deployment and continuous operation to achieve “lights out” manufacturing.

“Vention’s mission to democratize industrial automation addresses the manufacturing world’s toughest challenges. With production reshoring, labour shortage, and salary inflation, companies are looking for breakthrough solutions to automate their shop floor,” said Etienne Lacroix, CEO and co-founder of Vention. “Through this partnership, manufacturers now have access to a complete, turnkey offering, leveraging Vention’s Manufacturing Automation Platform, and Flexxbotics’ advanced machine tending solution, along with, their knowledge and expertise in deploying complex workcells.”

Flexxbotics shares in a press statement that Vention combines 3D design, code-free industrial programming, and a library of 4,000+ modular automation components where users can navigate through the design, automate, deploy, and operate stages of creating automated equipment within its MAP platform. Vention’s solution reportedly enables manufacturing professionals to design and procure efficiently and profitably the automation for each workcells’ unique machine tending requirements across the factory floor. Flexxbotics professionals deploy and optimize the Vention-designed robotic systems along with the Flexxbotics solution for advanced robot machine tending.


“We are excited to partner with Vention to deliver custom designs for robotic workcell digitalization. We understand the necessity for the fleets of robots in the smart factory to connect, communicate, and work interactively with the CNC machinery and inspection equipment to provide the closed-loop coordination necessary for autonomous process control,” said Tyler Bouchard, CEO and co-founder of Flexxbotics. “We make robots go far beyond simply working with the machinery, the robots command and control the machines to optimize production, enabling greater throughput and ‘lights-out’ manufacturing.”
