Flexiv partners with Handplus Robotics to offer new robotic solutions

Flexiv, a maker of “general-purpose” robotics solutions, has formed a partnership with Handplus Robotics, a Singaporean-based automation integration company.

Established in 2018, Handplus has extensive experience in automating logistics and manufacturing lines, making them the ideal partner to install and commission Flexiv’s range of seven-axis force-controlled robots.

With demand for Flexiv’s automation solutions growing year-on-year, Handplus’s already established distribution network within Singapore and Malaysia will empower Flexiv to meet the needs of an ever-increasing customer base.

Over the past two years, Flexiv’s partner network has grown rapidly to deal with this demand and features partners worldwide.

Owen Wu, Flexiv’s senior sales manager for the Asia Pacific region, says: “This partnership with Handplus will enable more end-users to take advantage of the opportunities afforded by adaptive robotic technology.

“We have seen substantial growth over the past two years, and this strategic partnership with Handplus will enable us to expand our market presence without compromising the service we provide to our clients.

“Working together, Flexiv and Handplus will enable customized smart solutions to be created, which will reduce the effects of labor bottlenecks and decrease the ROI period.”

Albert Causo, the CEO and founder of Handplus, says: “Flexiv is the ideal partner for us as they offer a different kind of robotic arm which is a game-changer for applications which require sensitivity and fast response times.

“The added functionality of a seventh axis and the force control capacity has opened an extra dimension of possibility for us. If robots are to be used for tasks which require human-like dexterity and sensitivity, Flexiv has the robots to do it.

“We are confident that our partnership will be mutually beneficial, and we look forward to what will surely be a very successful 2023.”

Since releasing their first commercially available adaptive robot in 2018, Flexiv has been committed to providing automation solutions that truly help improve the world. By removing the need for workers to complete dangerous, dirty, or unfulfilling tasks, staff can be redeployed to more rewarding jobs that require a human touch.
