Mujin to Debut Random Bin Picking at Automate 2023

Visitors to booth 5632 will experience Mujin’s universal platform powering robotics applications for both factory automation and logistics

At Automate May 22-25, robotics technology company Mujin will make its North American debut of its award-winning random bin picking application for the manufacturing industry. Mujin has deployed hundreds of bin picking cells in APAC and is bringing to North America a production ready platform for implementation into complex bin picking workflows. This highly anticipated application is one of several innovative technologies in Mujin's booth (#5632) highlighting how its intelligent robotics platform can empower robots from any manufacturer to take on some of the most difficult tasks to automate, both in the warehouse and on the factory floor.

Mujin's latest product to become available to the North American market represents a significant advancement in automation for the manufacturing industry. This innovative technology enables robots to efficiently and accurately identify, grasp, and manipulate metal parts from bins or containers, revolutionizing the way industrial processes handle metal components. With this groundbreaking product, Mujin continues to redefine the possibilities of intelligent robotics in the automation landscape.

Mujin Random Bin Picking Outperforms Traditional Systems

Mujin's random bin picking combines vision, control, and planning technologies to achieve a unified system where users can create more reliable and performant picking solutions faster than traditional systems.

Some of the key benefits of Mujin's random bin picking application

Ease of use: no-code programming makes it easy for anyone to operate a robot, even without prior programming experience.
Capability: can pick and place parts from any orientation and location in bins just by registering their CAD models.
Speed: faster than traditional systems because it is powered by Mujin's best-in-class, real-time motion planning technologies that optimize the robot motion and IO commands.
No collision: utilizes the world's only general-purpose robot controller with advanced integrated control, which considers the surrounding environment.
"The future of robotics will be powered by intelligent robot controllers that can leverage the environment and make autonomous decisions, and we are glad to open this technology up to the market through the MujinController," said Ross Diankov, Mujin CEO and co-founder. "Whether it's random bin picking or a range of other applications and products, Mujin is committed to pushing the boundaries of intelligent robotics and enabling a new era of automation."

Robots from Six Manufacturers Powered by the MujinController at Automate

In addition to showcasing random bin picking, Mujin's demonstrations at Automate 2023 will feature a diverse range of logistics automation applications. Visitors to the Mujin booth will witness the seamless integration of mixed-SKU palletizing, mixed-SKU depalletizing, piece picking, and tote picking, all powered by the MujinController. Notably, these demonstrations will highlight the collaboration between robots from six different manufacturers (Fanuc, ABB, Yaskawa Motoman, KUKA, Kawasaki, and Geek+), combining industrial robot arms and mobile robots to create a unified solution.

The Power of Mujin's Platform on Display in Other Booths

KUKA (#2623): To highlight its newly launched KMP 600-S diffDrive mobile platform automated guided vehicle (AGV) system, KUKA partnered it with a KR IONTEC robot in a cell developed by Mujin for efficiently palletizing and depalletizing consumer goods. To coordinate robot movement, the cell incorporates a MujinController and camera system.
Alliance Automation (#200): Being able to quickly deploy warehouse automation solutions has become critical in the market for companies wanting to maximize their return on investment. To showcase such capabilities, Alliance has incorporated Mujin's plug-and-play solution QuickBot into their exhibit. QuickBot will demonstrate the flexibility and ease of using Mujin's platform to perform the complex task of automated depalletizing.

FAULHABER MICROMO - Impressive accuracy through the latest chip technology

With the launch of the IEP3, FAULHABER expands its product line with an incremental encoder which, thanks to the latest chip technology, achieves a very high resolution and accuracy. With a diameter of just 8 mm, the IEP3 is very lightweight and compact yet still offers a resolution of up to 10,000 lines per revolution - made possible by the latest chip technology with high interpolation. In the standard version, the resolution is freely programmable from 1 - 4,096 lines per revolution. Moreover, the chip technology that is used ensures a high positional accuracy of typically 0.3 °m as well as a high repeatability of typically 0.05 °m thanks to accuracy compensation.
