Parts Feeder

Born out of necessity. Designed from experience.

Founded in 1926, Graco is a leading global manufacturer and marketer of fluid handling systems and components. The company’s success has been built on its unwavering commitment to technical excellence and world-class manufacturing.

Several years ago Graco was involved in a manufacturing automation project and struggled to find suitable commercially available parts feeding solutions to work with vision guided robots. Bowl feeders lacked the desired flexibility and we knew from experience that they can be a source of ongoing maintenance, cost, and headaches.

As a result, Graco engineers developed the G-Flex Flexible Parts Feeding Solution and placed several into operation within our own factory. Since that time, multiple G-Flex Solutions have been put into action in more Graco factories, and the results have been simply outstanding!
