The company delivers best-in-class robotics solutions to some of the world's leading brands across industries including Nike, Decathlon, Walmart, and Dell, among others.

As one of the world's leading suppliers of drive and control technologies, Bosch Rexroth ensures efficient, powerful and safe movement in machines and systems of any size. Its Intralogistics Robotics project provides modular software and hardware components for a wide range of AGV manufacturers. For innovative software-solutions, the company combines maximum flexibility at start-up level with intensive research and profound application knowledge in the field of autonomous driving within the Bosch Group.

The partnership will bring together the expertise of the two industry leaders in their respective domains to create value-added solutions for Geek+ customers to improve their own logistics operations.

"Geek+ is committed to working with exceptional technology and supply chain companies to create a strong technological and industrial ecosystem, and jointly form an intelligent and agile supply chain," said Yong ZHENG, founder and CEO at Geek+. "We are very pleased to cooperate with Bosch Rexroth to develop the most cutting edge mobile robotics and smart logistics technologies and deliver even more value to our current and future customers."

"For instance, the Locator, a localization software for the reliable positioning and orientation of mobile robots, offers maximum flexibility and an outstanding usability," said Jörg HECKEL, project director Intralogistics Robotics at Bosch Rexroth. "Geek+ has presented a flexible, professional and collaborative mindset to meet the fast growing demands of automation projects. We are looking forward to shape a dynamic robotics market together."

With the ever-changing marketplace, companies are facing rising challenges on efficiency and flexibility, especially in the increasingly complex world of production and logistics. Geek+ will continue to work closely with its partners to introduce more total integrated smart logistics solutions and drive the overall transformation of the supply chain, empowering its customers worldwide to respond quickly to market demand and drive sustainable business growth.

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

The industry's first comprehensive Robot Integrator Program saves robot integrators significant time and cost investments by allowing them to mark each cell compliant with ANSI/RIA R15.06 with the TUV Rheinland Mark. As opposed to a traditional certification or an on-site field labeling, TÜV Rheinland's Robot Integrator Program certifies the knowledge and skill-set of robot integrators in addition to testing robotic cells and processes against ANSI/RIA R15.06. This reduces the need for frequent onsite or off site testing and allows manufacturers to apply a single TÜV Rheinland label to multiple cells. The Robot Integrator Program individually assesses a robot integrator's understanding of the ANSI/RIA R15.06 standard along with the ability to consistently produce compliant robot cells. Following the requirements and procedures of the new program will enable robot integrators to produce individually compliant robotic cells under one serialized TÜV Rheinland Mark, which meets the national electric code and allows acceptance by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) and end users.
