This partnership will fuel robotic automation solutions in the food sector
BEDFORD, MASSACHUSETTS, UNITED STATES, June 15, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Soft Robotics announced today that AMP Automation has joined its Preferred System Integrator program. This partnership will help expand robotic adoption in the food sector enabled by Soft Robotics unique food-grade soft gripping, 3D vision, and AI technologies.
Soft Robotics Preferred System Integrator Program is an initiative to help integrators win more business with its industry-leading technologies, including the mGrip™ modular gripping system and SoftAI™. SoftAI and mGrip enable machine builders to deliver reliable, high-performance singulated and bulk picking solutions for applications that couldn’t previously be automated due to challenges with delicate, variable, or easily damaged objects. Through this program, integrators will benefit from personalized application support, product training, and growth opportunities with Soft Robotics' far-reaching network in the Food & Beverage and Consumer Packaged Goods spaces. The program aims to solve difficult end-user automation problems by connecting members with trusted integrators that have proven track records of success.
“Three or four years ago we started to focus on automation machinery, and we haven’t looked back since,” said Paul Mann, Sales Director at AMP Automation. “During this time, we incorporated Soft Robotics technology and began automating bakery goods, fresh and frozen meats, snacks, fruits, naked or packaged. We saw so much potential. This new technology by Soft Robotics has given AMP more opportunities to win business and we are planning to double production in the next few years.”
“Soft Robotics is excited to have AMP join our Preferred Systems Integrator program,” said Malachy Ryan, Senior Sales Director at Soft Robotics. “This partnership will allow widespread adoption of robotic automation solutions in the European market as together we drive automation, increase productivity and ensure product safety in the food industry.”
