Robotiq, a supplier of cobot application solutions for factories, has announced a strategic partnership with 3D vision specialist Picket and Festo, a provider of pneumatic and electrical automation technology.
Together, the companies aim to combine Festo’s industrial automation products with Robotiq’s quick integration approach to develop all-in-one production floor solutions that widen access to cobot applications for the manufacturing sector.
The collaboration builds on a previous partnership, which saw Robotiq’s grippers and Picket’s 3D vision technology integrated into bin-picking operations.
Of the latest venture, Samuel Bouchard, CEO of Robotiq, said: “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.”
