Soft Robotics Demonstrates mGripAI™ at the International Baking Industry and Exposition

High-Speed Automation Solutions for Delicate Baked Goods

Today Soft Robotics Inc. announced that they will be showcasing mGripAI in booth 5033-North Hall at the International Baking Industry and Exposition (IBIE), September 18-21, 2022, at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.


mGripAI combines 3D Perception, Soft Grasping, and State-Of-The-Art Artificial Intelligence to help machine builders and end users address complex picking tasks that were previously reliant on human labor in the food and consumer goods industries.

High-Speed Automation Solutions for Baked Goods combining 3D Perception, Soft Grasping, and Artificial Intelligence

At this event, Soft Robotics will demonstrate mGripAI working in two capacities:

Donut Sortation - Picking, sorting, and packaging of donuts at rates of up to 70 picks per minute.
Bin Picking Bread - 3D bin picking and sorting of bread at rates of up to 23 picks per minute.
"IBIE is the perfect platform to showcase our high-speed automated picking solutions," said Paul Kling, Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing at Soft Robotics. "Along with the protein and produce industries, the baking industry is also faced with labor and workforce challenges which are impacting production levels. Whether it's breads, muffins, cookies, or cakes, we have technology and solutions to automate these processes."
