Tompkins Solutions will be able to integrate Soft Robotics’ mGripAI grasping technology to logistics operations under a partnership between the two companies.

The mGripAI uses artificial intelligence (AI) three-dimensional vision and soft grasping technologies to perform high-speed picking, sortation and packaging of a wide variety of items.

This combination of technologies allows industrial robots to replicate the sensory, cognitive and dexterous abilities of human workers.

“After experiencing overwhelming success in the food industry, we’re now delighted to apply our no-code robotic picking and inspection solutions to applications across a variety of new industries,” says Soft Robotics chief executive officer Mark Chiappetta.

“We look forward to partnering with Tompkins Solutions to help organisations optimise their supply chain operations and gain a competitive advantage.”

Tompkins Solutions chief executive officer David Latona says: “As supply chains continue to face complex challenges and disruptions, AI-enabled solutions like mGripAI will play a critical role in helping companies increase efficiency, reduce costs and meet growing demands.”

Tompkins Solutions will showcase mGripAIm at Modex 2024 in Atlanta next month.
