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."

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
