MENLO PARK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kinema Systems is proud to announce its first product - Kinema Pick - the world's first self-training, self-calibrating software solution for robotic depalletizing. Kinema Pick enables fully automated depalletization of multi-SKU, single-SKU and random pallets of boxes. Kinema Pick is self-training - it requires no manual training for the type of boxes to be picked or the workcell that the robot is operating in. Kinema Pick can be easily configured using a browser-based GUI. Kinema Pick is the first in a series of solutions from Kinema Systems for the "holy grail" of industrial robotics - random picking. Kinema Pick addresses a critical need in the e-commerce, logistics and distribution industry for robotic picking solutions capable of dealing with unstructured random pallets of boxes.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
