    Bedford, MA September 14, 2022 - Today Soft Robotics Inc. announced that they will be showcasing mGripAI in booth 5033-North Hall at the International Baking Industry and Exposition (IBIE), September 18-21, 2022, at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

    mGripAI 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 this event, 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.
    • 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 Benefits:

    • Save floorspace
    • Reduce dependency on unavailable human labor
    • Increased throughput
    • Lower maintenance costs
    • Safer products
    • Reduction in food waste

    Staubli Robotics, a leading international player in industrial automation will also be demonstrating Soft Robotics’ mGrip, modular gripping system, in booth 7255.

  • mGripAI
    mGripAI™ is an easy-to-integrate automation solution combining 3D vision, soft grasping, and artificial intelligence (AI) software that together solve the largest food and consumer goods production challenges facing the world today....

  • As the only high-speed automation solution for food products, mGripAI is proven to pick, place, and sort delicate, variable and bulk food products in the baked goods, prepared foods, produce and protein industries. This unprecedented combination of robotic “hands,” “eyes” and “brains” enables, for the first time ever, the high-speed automation of bulk picking processes (e.g. bin picking).

    Why mGripAI?

    • Increase production reliability—minimize your dependence on human labor

    • Deliver greater throughput—robots pick at >90 ppm

    • Produce safer product—IP69K rating and food-grade materials

    • Increase operational efficiencies

    • Reduce automation system footprint

    • Pick delicate and variable products directly from bulk

    • Reduce product damage with soft gripping

    • Automate primary and secondary food processing applications

    • Lower operational costs

    • Easy integration with all industrial robots
