Since Hexapod is a passive reconfigurable fixture, it requires no motors, no cables and no wires. This is possible due to a hydraulic system with a pressure intensifier, controlled by a single pneumatic valve which release or activate effectively the hydraulic clamping system around the legs of the Hexapod, securing an accurate positioning. The Hexapod system from Flex Hex can be utilised in any industries where fixed fixtures are used in production. If you want to improve the production quality, save time expenditure on changeover reconfiguration and calibration between production batches, improve working environment and keep costs down, then this is the cheep but accurate solution for your process. The Hexapod system is fully integrated with other robot activities in production lines. The merging of these two technologies lead to an economical feasible, flexible and high quality fixture that ensure high stiffness and accuracy in fixating work-pieces. Due to a patented joint system, the Hexapod after positioning keeps a very accurate position and no notifiable deformation are noticed compared to dedicated fixture even in extreme position. Our offer: The Hexapod can be designed according to your process, for small payloads (10 kg) and up to high payloads (1500 kg), with or without positioning feedback, with or without protection depending of the environment (clean, harsh). It can easily be integrated in your concept by using 3D file with position geometry giving a quick answer if the system fits to the criteria of positions needed for the fixtures compare to the work pieces or the allowed working space. The concept is already working for some specific application and we would like to make further proof of concept and business in different kinds of industries (manufacturing, automotive, railway, aviation...) and segments (assembly, welding, drilling, slibning...)

Our Noos cloud platform ( provides centralised intelligence to robots that are connected to it. Noos is a highly scalable service, which greatly reduces robotic development and deployment costs. With cloud robotics: - Costs are significantly lowered. - Existing on-board robot resources are freed to be used in other tasks. - Storage capacity is increased. - Power consumption on the robot is decreased. - Fast development of robotic software and deployment of robotic systems is possible. - Cloud based intelligence is enabled, and robots can collaborate and learn from each other. We see a great synergetic potential of the HORSE framework with the Noos platform. We can offer the Noos services as HORSE modules, and of course we can develop additional services based on the HORSE framework. To apply the HORSE framework in the above context, we seek specific use cases / industrial contexts and partners for which we will develop specific targeted solutions. Cloud enabled robotic fleet planning and coordination (also with human workers) is a first obvious application, with real-time or near real-time analysis of sensorial information. Industrial robotic systems could have their tasks effectively and efficiently reconfigured in the cloud as and when the task context changes (i.e. when new objects or people enter the environment). Possible obstacles, machinery or humans can be detected and recognised as such by the use of cloud data processing. Real-time maps can be generated, and new paths and planning can be performed. To avoid cloud latency, edge-computing can easily be used to have the cloud physical infrastructure near the robots / sensors. Furthermore, cloud robotics also enables cooperation of robots not only at the single plant level, but also at multi-site level by utilising data mining and learning (at local, regional and cross-border levels).
