Have a Cobot that is Under Utilized?
Integrate existing welding Cobots or new Cobots into Flextur’s Cobot Welding System to create an extremely accurate, efficient, safe, repeatable and highly productive welding cell.
The Time to Take Action is Now!
Forecast: 400,000 less welders will be in the workforce by end of 2026.
The Flextur Cobot Welding System solves these three major issues:
Faster Change Overs Increase Arc On Time.
The ideal solution for high mix low volume parts, with less downtime and the ability to do offline part setup. A Flextur customer using the Flextur Cobot Welding System increased productivity from 20 manually welded parts per day to 80 parts per day. A 300% Increase in productivity. In another example, set up time was reduced from over 45 minutes to under 5. A 900% increase in efficiency, creating more Arc On Time.
Ease of Use – Simplicity & Repeatability
This benefit of a Cobot is often lost when it comes to holding parts or fixturing. There are always complexities setting up a part or changing to a new part. Additional challenges occur designing a productive work flow or maintaining operations after the first shift automation engineer or tech leave for the day. These challenges are often why Cobots become under-utilized, or even worse… pushed into a corner. The Flextur Cobot Welding System featuring Quick-Change Fixture Tables solves these complex issues in a simple way that works.
Transitioning Your Team From Hand Welding to Automation.
This is especially important in times of skilled labor shortages in the welding sector. The Flextur Cobot Welding System makes difficult welding applications accessible to AWS Certified Welders with the tools they need to be more productive. Allowing manual welders to transfer knowledge to automation without the hurdle of more advanced programming necessary when trying to complete similar tasks with a traditional robot.

The Modular Design of the Flextur Cobot Welding System adapts with you.
Whether you are getting your first cobot, or your 21st cobot. Or, if you’ve been using fixtures or you just got your first welding table, Flextur’s Cobot Welding System can meet you where you are. And it will easily adapt and grow with you, as you become more advanced in your cobot usage.
Flextur Cobot Docking Station
The Flextur Cobot Docking Station is the heart of the Flextur Cobot Welding System. Your cobot, cobot controller, power supply and wire feeder will be mounted to this rugged, fork-able base. Because all of the other table options mount to and work with the Docking Station it is recommended that it be securely bolted to the floor.
Flextur Cobot Tables
Flextur Cobot Tables are available in 36”x36” and 72”x36”. These nitrated tables easily bolt up and accurately align and level to the Flextur Cobot Docking Station. These are great tables for prototyping, or scenarios where the pricing, volume or job do not merit a fixture. Tables also utilize Gridlok Technology, allowing you to keep the tools or parts you use most close at hand.
Flextur Quick-Change Fixture Tables
If you are like the majority of Cobot owners we’ve spoken to, you are doing a high mix of low to mid volume parts. You feel your Cobot is under utilized and you’re struggling with how to maximize your Cobot investment? The patent pending Flextur Quick-Change Fixture Table is the only one of its kind. It allows you to create highly accurate, repeatable, automated workflows that increase productivity in a big way. This frees up your Automation Engineer, Cobot Technician and Experienced Welder for other things, while the Cobot Operator simply burns wire and makes parts. Changing parts is as simple as releasing the pneumatic quick-detach Quick-Change Fixture Plate and returning it to the Quick-Change Fixture Plate storage rack. Choose the next Quick-Change Fixture Plate and safely clamp it into position with the touch of a button. Select the new program and keep your workflow humming.
Quick-Change Fixture Plate
These durable plates are engineered to be positioned and clamped in the exact spot every time on the Flextur Quick-Change Fixture Table. How accurate you ask? Plates are within +/- .015” every time. These serve as a consistent base for any fixtures. Our Quick-Change Fixture Plates work with all types of fixtures, from basic welded stops and clamps to the latest full 3D designed tab and slot fixtures. Flextur can assist anyone using a Flextur Cobot Welding System by designing and/or building fixtures for their specific application.
Organize & Standardize Your Facility
Outfit your facility for maximum productivity
By organizing and standardizing your facility using Flextur workstations, tool boards, and accessories, you will decrease labor and material costs, improve product quality, and organize your tool and material storage. Enhance 5S, Lean, and OSHA compliance efforts providing a safer working environment for your employees and visitors.
Working with Automation
Create a Lean & Efficient Workflow While Increasing Productivity
Robotic welders only increase efficiency when they are burning wire. Whether loading a robot or interacting with a cobot, having all the material you need within easy reach is vital... we engineer our workstations to solve this issue. Only when using a variety of Flextur products, including Wall Mount and Mobile Tool Boards, Workbenches, and Welding Tables to support an automated operation, can you find true efficiency, increase safety and reduce cycle times and defects.
