Soft Robotics Launches SoftAI ™ to Accelerate Adoption of Robotics in Food Processing
SoftAI is a game-changer by augmenting traditional industrial robots with true hand-eye coordination unlocking their use in most labor-dependent processes. This technological innovation will ultimately lead to the large-scale adoption of automation, resulting in a more resilient food supply chain that produces safer products at higher volumes with reduced waste and lower costs. lower operating.
“The food industry critically depends on the workforce to achieve its production goals,” said Marc Chiappetta, COO at Soft Robotics. “But challenges related to workforce availability and productivity, tighter food safety regulations and global health crises have highlighted the need to break that dependency. on SoftAI is the solution. ”
“Robots have been widely adopted across a range of industries, resulting in safer working environments, consistently higher quality products and improved profitability for operators,” said Jeff Beck, CEO of Soft Robotics. “However, the adoption of robotics in food production operations has been very limited due to technological and health challenges. SoftAI was specifically developed by a team of highly skilled robotics engineers to solve these challenges. now make a real positive difference in the quest to automate food production. We look forward to engaging with food producers and our systems integration partners in this new frontier of robotics. ”
