Kawasaki Robotics partners with Olis Robotics

by Marco van der Hoeven

Olis Robotics, specializing in remote error recovery for industrial robots, announced a partnership with Kawasaki Robotics. This collaboration aims to enhance the functionality of Kawasaki’s industrial robots by integrating Olis Robotics’ technology, which offers customers the ability to quickly restart production, substantially reduce troubleshooting and downtime costs, and access expert support efficiently.

Olis Robotics’ solution enables users to connect to their robots through an on-premises device via a secure connection. This approach circumvents the risks and complexities often associated with cloud-based systems. A key feature of the Olis system is its adherence to the robot controller’s safety restrictions, ensuring physical safety is not compromised.

To demonstrate the capabilities of this partnership, Kawasaki and Olis Robotics will present an interactive demo at MODEX 2024, taking place from March 11 to 14 in Atlanta, GA. Collaborating with CRG Automation, a Louisville-based integration house, they will showcase a robotic corner board system integrated with a mixed palletizing and depalletizing cell. This system, featuring a Kawasaki RS007L robot, automates the placement of corner boards on pallets for enhanced load stability. The demonstration will allow attendees to experience firsthand how the Olis Robotics software can detect and recover from errors, such as unexpected robot stoppages or failures in part picking or placing.

Paul Marcovecchio, Director of the GI Business Unit at Kawasaki Robotics Inc., expressed the increasing market demand for remote robot monitoring and recovery capabilities. He emphasized that the integration of Olis Robotics’ technology with Kawasaki’s industrial robots is a significant development in the industry. According to Marcovecchio, this partnership caters to a wide spectrum of industry players, from smaller first-time end-users and their integrator partners to larger plants with more complex AI-driven applications. The collaboration is designed to make remote monitoring, access, and recovery of robot cells both simple and cost-effective.

Fredrik Ryden, CEO of Olis Robotics, highlighted the durability of Kawasaki robots and their suitability for a wide range of applications. Ryden pointed out that Kawasaki’s commitment to providing a top-tier buying experience and a quick return on investment aligns well with Olis Robotics’ offerings. He also mentioned the advantage of Kawasaki’s extensive integrator network, which can benefit from Olis Robotics’ remote support capabilities, potentially enabling integrators to grow their operations more rapidly.
