ROBOTICS
PRODUCTION LINE
the difference between industrial
and collaborative robots (cobots),
Donnelly added. Handling delicacy
and speed come into play when it
comes to fresh produce.
" Collaborative robots are growing
in popularity due to their ease of
deployment and use, " she said. " A
common mistake is not understanding
the differences in speed capability
with collaborative robots, which are
purposefully slower than industrial
robots due to the safety aspects of
collaborative robots. Collaborative
robots also aren't always
less
expensive than industrial robots. "
Gripping and picking apparatuses,
such as Soft Robotics' mGrip, should
be able to adapt to size and shape
of the fruit or vegetable to allow for
minimal tooling so the produce does
not get damaged or bruised.
