This modular material-handling system brings nearly unlimited growth potential to shop floors of all sizes..

The SmartFlex COMPACT series provides flexible, expandable automation into a compact footprint.

With an installation footprint of less than 32’x36’ (3015), the SmartFlex COMPACT is a purpose-built load/unload unit for maximum productivity in minimum space.

This space-saving design comes in a number of configurations, making automation possible. Plus, today’s software capabilities and cycle times make even short-run job shop environments good candidates for automation.


  • Our laser automation line is fully modular, giving you and your shop the perfect opportunity to create a machining and fabrication solution that’s custom-built to your exact specifications. And with configurations that require up to 30% less floorspace than other setups, designing the setup that’s right for you has never been easier or more cost-effective.


  • From small fabrication shops to massive lights-out operations, our laser automation line comes ready with a wide range of options that make it a great fit in nearly any scenario. This isn’t something you’ll need to replace in 5 years.


  • Not sure where to get started? Not to worry. Our laser automation experts will work with you to determine the right combination of machines, storage towers, product carts, and break-in stations. Together, we’ll help you create an adaptable, future-forward solution you can rely on to meet the needs of today and the challenges of tomorrow.

Available in both 3015 and 4020, the The SmartFlex COMPACT Plus automation system is a robust, modular productivity platform that can be easily altered and augmented—all at your command.
