Soft Robotics Inc., an innovator in AI-enabled picking solutions developed specifically for the food industry, will be demonstrating mGripAI at the May 22-25 Automate 2023 exhibition in Detroit, Michigan.

By combining proprietary and industry-proven 3D vision, artificial intelligence, and soft grasping technologies into an easy-to-integrate, IP69K-rated solution, mGripAI enables system integrators and OEM machine builders to automate otherwise off-limits production processes using industrial robots now empowered with the sensory, cognitive, and dexterous abilities of human workers.

The New Bedford, Massachusetts-headquartered company will demonstrate two mGripAI-powered applications in Booth #818:

• Tray Packing Chicken Drumsticks Directly from Bulk – Picking, orienting, and packaging of raw poultry product from bulk at rates of up to 60 units per minute.

• Case Packing Sausages from Bulk – 3D bin picking, sorting, and orienting packaged sausages at rates of up to 24 picks per minute.

Soft Robotics will also feature the mGripAI no-code interface which enables any machine builder to leverage the power of AI in complex picking applications.

“Ease-of-deployment is at the core of every mGripAI system,” said Austin Harvey, the company’s vice president of product and marketing. “It is now easier than ever for machine builders to deploy AI-enabled solutions and leverage complex object understanding for high-speed picking applications.”
