By Enterprise Technology Review | Tuesday, September 22, 2020

Robotiq is turning the world of collaborative robots to be even more collaborative by joining forces with 3D vision pioneer Pickit and industrial linear motion specialist Festo.

FREMONT, CA : "Collaboration is not just for robots," says Annie Giguère, VP of product management and marketing at Robotiq. "Working together with other industry leaders, namely Pickit and Festo, will help us provide manufacturers with better application solutions for their production floor."

Pickit and Robotiq technologies have been used together in the past in bin-picking applications, leveraging Pickit's famous 3D vision and Robotiq's quick-to-production grippers. Robotiq and Pickit will create even better application solutions for the manufacturing sector with these new strategic partnerships.

"At Pickit, we share Robotiq's positive impact and creative values," states Bart Houben, VP of sales and marketing. "We've worked together in the past and we are excited to launch what we're creating together."

"Festo Canada and Robotiq worked closely together to make this partnership a success," says Achim Kottmann, product manager at Festo. "We are looking forward to launching joint products that will widen access to cobot applications for even more manufacturers."

Festo is offering its world-class industrial automation product range. Coupled with Robotiq's philosophy of ease of use and fast integration, manufacturers will profit from a new range of all-in-one solutions to begin production faster than ever before.

"We are proud to be working with Pickit and Festo, both industry leaders in their respective fields of 3D vision and industrial linear motion. Our shared commitment to getting factories automated quickly, easily and efficiently will be multiplied by combining our expertise," says Samuel Bouchard, CEO of Robotiq.

Robotiq exists to free human hands from repetitive tasks. It is a global leader in cobot application solutions for factories. Manufacturers automate manual tasks utilizing Robotiq's easy-to-deploy technology, its Lean Robotics deployment procedure, and extended local partner network. Thus, they become more productive while fully using the potential of their skilled workers.
