With a focus on several industries, including schools, hospitals, big box retailers, and hospitality, Intellibot is expanding its distribution throughout the United States.

The company was also recognized at this year's RoboBusiness Leadership Summit (Nov. 2-3 in Boston) with the receipt of a ROBIE Award. Intellibot's HydroBot was named as one of the most noteworthy robotic products of 2011. Award entries were judged by a panel of independent industrial designers, engineers and members of the media who were selected to honor outstanding design and engineering in the robotics industry.

Intellibot's HydroBot provides several industry firsts for the future of floor care:

Reduces labor by 80 percent
Increases productivity of operations and janitorial teams
Cuts wastewater and chemical use by 85 percent

"This is an exciting time for Intellibot. The Portland move supports our corporate growth initiatives, and the receipt of the ROBIE further validates the future of robotics in the floor care industry," said Erick Frack, acting president of Intellibot. "As the industry leader in robotics floor care, we're uniquely positioned to address the industries' need to cut labor costs, improve productivity and reduce environmental impact. We are a game changer."

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
