Soft Robotics Inc. launches mGripAI, a robot that 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.
At IBIE (September 17 – 22, Las Vegas), 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; and 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.”
mGripAI allows manufacturers save floor space, reduce dependency on unavailable human labor, increased throughput, lower maintenance costs, produce safer products, and reduce food waste.
