mGripAI is an easy-to-integrate automation package that combines ultra-fast 3D vision and artificial intelligence technologies with patented and proven, IP69K-rated, soft grasping to give industrial robots the hand-eye coordination of humans. This unprecedented combination of robotic “hands,” “eyes” and “brains” enables, for the first time ever, the use of high-speed industrial robots to automate bulk picking processes in the bratwurst and sausage processing industry.
The demand for food automation has increased significantly due to the lack of available labor and increased labor wages. Food processors grappling with a shortage of labor (particularly skilled labor), more rigorous food safety standards and greater competition, are turning to robotic automation to address these challenges.
