The standardised Scape Bin-Picking concept enables a wide range of industries to implement flexible and reliable bin-picking solutions for handling parts, thereby optimising productivity, eliminating monotonous tasks and improving workers’ ergonomics.”
Founded in 2004, Scape Technologies has developed patented technology to recognise, pick and place parts. The company’s systems, which are generally marketed in cooperation with partners responsible for building and implementing them, are widely used within the automotive industry, with end users including Ford, Nissan and BMW. Scape also develops solutions that can be connected directly to leading six-axis robot brands, including Universal Robots, ABB, Fanuc, Kawasaki and KUKA.
