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."

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
