BLUE OCEAN ROBOTICS ANNOUNCES 3D BIN PICKING PLATFORM

A standard solution based on collaborative robot and proven 3D vision technology

Cincinnati, OH — November 11, 2015 — Blue Ocean Robotics, a leading provider of emerging robots and automation solutions announced the release of a standard solution for 3D bin picking of small industrial parts.


The Mini-Picker bin picking solution is available with the Universal Robots UR5 collaborative robot. A robot that leads the industry in ROI and ease of deployment and re-deployment as production needs change. The system is well-suited for machine loading of small parts. Automating the loading and unloading of machines results in increased production rates and increased machine utilization (or OEE). The system will be available with additional robot brands to cover a wider range of parts soon.

"We are pleased to announce the release of the Mini-Picker solution. The core technology is based on work from world leading bin-picking company Scape Technologies with over 25 systems running in production, many of them in the automotive industry." says Tim DeRosett, co-founder and CEO of Blue Ocean Robotics, LLC. "This system greatly reduces the complexity and cost of deploying robots for industrial bin-picking applications."

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
