Cincinnati, Ohio—Blue Ocean Robotics, a provider of emerging robots and automation solutions announced the release of a standard solution for 3D bin picking of small industrial parts.

The Mini-Picker bin picking solution is available with the Universal Robots UR5 collaborative robot. The system is well-suited for machine loading of small parts. Automating the loading and unloading of machines results in increased production rates and increased machine utilization (or OEE). The system will be available with additional robot brands to cover a wider range of parts soon.

“We are pleased to announce the release of the Mini-Picker solution. The core technology is based on work from world leading bin-picking company Scape Technologies with over 25 systems running in production, many of them in the automotive industry,” says Tim DeRosett, co-founder and CEO of Blue Ocean Robotics, LLC. “This system greatly reduces the complexity and cost of deploying robots for industrial bin-picking applications.”
