RE2 Robotics Achieves 50% Growth Despite Pandemic

Company Meets its 2020 Hiring Goal Before the End of the Year

PITTSBURGH, PA - Oct. 14, 2020 - RE2 Robotics, a leading developer of intelligent mobile manipulation systems, announced today that the Company has already reached its 2020 hiring goal of increasing its staff by 50 percent. In particular, 83 percent of the new hires were engineers from a variety of disciplines, including mechanical, electrical, and software engineering. In addition, the Company has added to its operations team with the hiring of a head of talent, director of IT, and accountant, and has augmented its production team with the addition of a CNC machinist and lab assistant.

As announced in January, RE2's hiring push is a direct result of the company's significant expansion into commercial markets, including the aviation, energy, and medical industries. Throughout the remainder of the year, the Company will continue to hire additional engineering and production staff.
"RE2 has been extremely fortunate to continue our growth despite these challenging times," said Amy Tisdale, head of talent, who also joined RE2 earlier this year. "We had to quickly adapt to not only working remotely, but also recruiting, hiring, and onboarding our new employees remotely. The benefit of rapidly adapting was that we honed our recruiting and onboarding process and became a well-oiled hiring machine. We plan to use these best practices moving forward to ensure all new employees, whether remote or on-site, have a seamless experience."
"As we entered 2020, our goal was to grow the Company in order to successfully execute on our robotics programs, exceed our customers' expectations, and further develop our mobile manipulation product line. When the pandemic hit, our priority became to keep our employees safe while maintaining our customer commitments," stated Jorgen Pedersen, president and CEO of RE2 Robotics. "We came together as a team, developed new remote work processes across the company, including recruiting and onboarding, and hired incredible talent throughout the company. I must commend the entire RE2 team for their agility and perseverance during this extremely difficult time. Not only did the team adapt, but we exceeded our 2020 hiring goal well before the end of the year."

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.
