Tazza! A 3D-Based Robot Pick-and-Place Vision System

The vision system performs three key tasks: scanning in 3D the raw white vessels; analyzing the 3D scans to establish the vessels' size, shape, position; and communicating the results to the cobot so it can accurately reach the teacups as they move along the production line.

Smart Robotics announces the launch of their latest design in Warehouse Automation - the Smart Fashion Picker

This pick & place cobot is designed to pick fashion items of various sizes, materials and shapes - making item picking in warehouses more efficient for the fashion industry.

Berkshire Grey and FedEx Expand Their Robotic Automation Solutions Relationship

The new product development agreement is an expansion of this collaboration and offers new opportunities for the two companies to work together to further increase efficiencies across the FedEx enterprise using AI-enabled robotic automation.

Everything Under Control

In modern systems, "pick-and-place" is performed by automated grippers. They must be able to operate both powerfully and delicately and do so precisely and reliably millions of times over. Increasingly, the necessary power comes from electric motors.

Robot-Ready Conveying Optimizes Pick-and-Place

From a machine builder's point of view, robots can solve many processing and packaging line problems, but the chosen material handling systems supplying the line can reduce the robot's performance.

Parcel: A Lower-Cost Way To Automate Last-Mile Delivery Hubs

Solving the challenge of the last mile using traditional methods, like human teams and traditional automation systems, can require a massive upfront investment of capital and time - and often isn't enough to gain an edge in an already cutthroat market.

Pickle's new robot works with people to get your online orders delivered sooner.

Watch this MIT startup's robot unload a trailer blazingly fast. The secret? Keep people in the picture.

Implementing Piece-Picking Robots into Micro-Fulfillment Centers

In today's e-commerce environment, consumers are purchasing single items with a click and that item-handling task has been pushed back upstream into distribution and fulfillment centers.

Boston Dynamics Unveils New Robot for Warehouse Automation

Stretch's mobile base allows it to go to where repetitive box lifting is required - unloading trucks, building pallets of boxes and order building. Stretch makes warehouse operations more efficient and safer for workers.

Picking the Unknown - Robust and Flexible Robotic Automation in Logistics

With more than 70% of labor in warehousing being dedicated to picking and packing, numerous companies are gradually investing in logistics automation. But what happens when the robots must handle an unlimited number of (unknown) stock keeping units?

The Role of Smart Glasses as a Safe Return to Work Strategy

Pick-by-Vision adds to smart technology because smart glasses learn manufacturers' parts; they memorize the visual appearance including robots and bin locations. Pick-by-Vision predicts and prevents mis-picks and decides the best part to pick next.

Grinding and Deburring in a Foundry - standard grippers from the Zimmer Group

A foundry, making different car suspension parts, was using a gripper with a dust cover to grind and deburr parts out of a press. They were having issues with the gripper and getting debris in the guideways and not being able to actuate the gripper.

Universal Robots Launches ActiNav, the World's First Autonomous Bin Picking Kit for Machine Tending Applications

ActiNav synchronously handles vision processing, collision-free motion planning and autonomous real-time robot control, eliminating the complexity and risk usually associated with bin picking applications.

Seen, stored, learned - Self-learning robots solve tasks with the help of an Ensenso 3D camera

At the Institute for Intelligent Process Automation and Robotics of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), the Robot Learning Group (ROLE) focuses on various aspects of machine learning. The scientists are investigating how robots can learn to solve tasks by trying them out independently.

Pick, Purchase and Program Your First Industrial Robot

Robots aren't always given a favorable representation in pop culture. In Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), homicidal supercomputer HAL 9000 demonstrates how a robot could conspire against its human colleagues.
