Robotiq has partnered with industrial linear motion specialist Festo and 3D vision maker Pickit on new solutions for collaborative robots.

Pickit and Robotiq technologies have previously been used together in bin-picking applications, leveraging Pickit’s 3D vision and Robotiq’s grippers.

With the new strategic partnership, Robotiq and Pickit will use Festo industrial automation products to develop all-in-one application solutions for the manufacturing world, particularly in bin-picking and palletizing.

“We are proud to be working with Pickit and Festo, both industry leaders in their respective fields of 3D vision and industrial linear motion,” says Samuel Bouchard, CEO of Robotiq.
