Flexiv Launches New Solutions to Define the Applications of Adaptive Robots
By: Flexiv Ltd.
"Flexiv's solutions are set to tackle the existing problems in all automation industries and provide friendly, comprehensive and effortless customer experience, bringing industrial automation to the next level", says Shiquan Wang, CEO and founder of Flexiv.
Flexiv utilizes high-performance force control, computer vision and AI to adapt Rizon to the complex environment, accomplishing complex tasks requiring fine "hand-eye coordination"
The first three application scenarios include: plugging connectors with wire harness, precision component assembling, and soft-material surface processing. In the past, these tasks rely heavily on manual work, challenging product consistency and production line management.
Plugging connectors with wire harness is a common work scenario in the industrial manufacturing field, and requirements for automatic plugging also keep increasing due to the wide variety of connectors and functions.
With adaptive robots, Flexiv combines the world's leading AI system with high-performance force control capabilities to identify plug models and positional attitudes in complex environments and cable configurations without external assistance. It can avoid obstacles in real time, and adapt to unknown disturbance and deviations, thus efficiently complete tasks like grabbing, inserting, and assembling. Moreover, when introducing new products, clients can achieve low-cost and efficient line-changeover deployment with Flexiv's one-stop service.
Flexiv's first adaptive robotic product, Rizon, uses an all-inclusive design that opens up new ideas for the enhancement and integration of force and vision capabilities, moving robotics to a more flexible and intelligent direction. Flexiv has completed EAP(Early Adopter Programs) for adaptive robotic solutions with leading companies in the automotive and 3C manufacturing industries and will launch larger-scale robotics applications soon.
In 2019, the 21st China International Industrial Fair is being held in Shanghai. During the five-day exhibition, major manufacturers will display different products and applications in hot trends of human-machine collaboration, industrial Internet, artificial intelligence, etc., together with a variety of cutting-edge new technologies, new achievements, new applications, and new products.
