Kinema Systems Announces World’s First Self-Training Robot Picking Solution

Kinema Systems is proud to announce its first product - Kinema Pick - the world’s first self-training, self-calibrating software solution for robotic depalletizing.

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.
