Today, Berkshire Grey announced that it is the recipient of ABB
Robotics’ “Most Innovative Solutions” Award. The prestigious award was
announced at ABB Robotics’ 2019 Americas Value Provider Conference in
Auburn Hills, Michigan.
Sami Atiya, President of ABB’s Robotics & Discrete Automation business,
presented the award in recognition of Berkshire Grey’s portfolio of
solutions built around robotic item-level picking and placing for
retail, eCommerce, and omni-channel order fulfillment. Many of Berkshire
Grey’s customer deployed solutions incorporate ABB commercial industrial
robots. Those robots are augmented with Berkshire Grey’s AI-enabled
software, outfitted with Berkshire Grey’s gripping, sensing, and vision
technology, and surrounded by engineered infrastructure to create
complete solutions that deliver customer value.
“We at ABB Robotics applaud Berkshire Grey for their innovative use of
industrial robotics and are pleased to recognize their accomplishments
with our 2019 Most Innovative Solutions Award,” said Joe Chudy, US
General Manager, ABB Robotics. “Retail distribution, eCommerce
fulfillment, and logistics operations are ripe for robotic automation,
and the solutions Berkshire Grey has created to solve the order picking
challenges in these domains are at the forefront of this exciting new
wave of robotic applications.”
Grey’s solutions automatically pick, pack and sort individual items,
inner packs, cases, and parcels for eCommerce and store replenishment
orders. The technology achieves higher accuracy and throughput speeds
than traditional approaches. Berkshire Grey systems handle the broadest
assortment of products, packaging and parcels; all while continuously
improving performance through autonomous learning.
“We are pleased to accept this award for innovation from ABB,” says
Berkshire Grey’s Vice President of Operations, Kevin Ahern. “Our
solution designs are robotic manipulator agnostic, but our technical
teams often choose ABB arms for their precision and reliability. Our
customers demand scalable, robust systems that must be fast, flexible,
and accurate. ABB commercial industrial robots, driven by our software,
help us pick real products at enterprise speed and scale in real
production environments to meet customer demands.”
