Soft Robotics, Inc. will demonstrate the advanced capabilities of its award-winning soft robotic automation systems at PACK EXPO International in Chicago, IL from October 14-17, 2018.

A fully-automated grocery order fulfillment system enabled by Soft Robotics’ SuperPick™ system will be demonstrated in the booth.

Designed specifically for e-commerce, grocery, retail and logistics environments, SuperPick combines the power of patented Soft Robotics technology with artificial intelligence to enable the automation of highly unstructured tasks like bin picking, sorting and goods to robot fulfillment.

Soft Robotics will also demonstrate a high-speed cosmetics application using vision-guided robotics and a conveyor-to-conveyor system to highlight the rapid capabilities of packaging delicate high-value goods.

“The power of these applications really comes down to Soft Robotics’ award-winning core technology, which represents a fundamental departure from the complexities and cost associated with traditional robotic gripping,” said Carl Vause, CEO of Soft Robotics.

Soft Robotics designs and builds soft robotic automation systems that can grasp and manipulate items of varying size, shape and weight.

Spun out of the Whitesides Group at Harvard University, Soft Robotics is the only company to be commercializing this groundbreaking and proprietary technology platform.
