Soft Robotics today proclaimed the production of mGrip, the company's first on-demand, modular automation system. mGrip will enable the quick proliferation of soft robotics, and allow users everywhere to improve the company's patented, award-winning technology to build, validate and install production-ready systems in minutes.
Each kit goes equipped with the components required to build tools with limitless designs and spacing options, solving even the most impossible picking challenges. Since its inception, Soft Robotics' technology has converted manufacturing for industries that have been excluded from implementing automation due to the limitations of conventional robotic technologies. The company's revolutionary gripping system has been validated in the most demanding production environments with customers around the world.
Soft Robotics models and builds soft robotic automation systems that can grasp and manipulate items with human hand-like dexterity. Using patented material science, Soft Robotics unlocks automation for great important markets and labor-starved markets such as food and beverage, complex manufacturing, and e-commerce. The company's resilient, factory-validated gripping platform is in production with international customers that include one of the world's largest pizza retailers, a Fortune 500 consumer products company, and Just Born Quality Confections (maker of PEEPS®).
"Our customers have questioned for the potential to promptly build and deploy our disruptive technology, and we have supplied with mGrip," said Carl Vause, Soft Robotics' CEO. "As consumers spot increasing value on choice, control and convenience, manufacturers are looking for solutions that can enhance shorter lead times, accelerate new production introductions and simplify the manufacturing of customized products. With just one mGrip kit, you can automate an endless set of applications."
