IAM Robotics partners with Xproma

Autonomous warehouse robots maker IAM Robotics is partnering with Xproma, a developer of parcel robotic machinery.

Despite negativity in connection with the Covid-19 virus, says Xproma, there are also positive things to announce to start the year.

Xproma says it is pleased about the partnership with IAM Robotics from Pittsburgh, PA, USA, home to renowned robotics university, Carnegie Mellon University.

With this partnership, Xproma says it is taking the next step in warehouse automation by using “the most innovative autonomous robot solutions”.

Autonomous mobile robots can be configured with a variety of functions to automate intralogistic processes for Xproma’s customers, says the company.

With these functional expansions, a multitude of possible robot-supported automation solutions arises, including autonomous mobile manipulation robots.

Like a human order picker, autonomous mobile manipulation robots move through warehouse aisles, find the right products, and put items in a transport box or shipping carton to be transported to the shipping area.

Ralf Kolsen, CEO of Xproma, says: “The future-oriented technology of the IAM Robotics products and solution concepts is impressive. For our customers there are now a multitude of further possibilities and technological links to the current range of systems and solutions from Xproma.

“We are very pleased to be able to take the next step and a successful path towards the future together with IAM Robotics.”

As for Tom Galluzzo, CEO of IAM Robotics, says: “Our eyes are always directed towards the future. We not only work on new products and innovations, but also expand our sales activities.

“With extensive know-how, many years of market expertise, and access to the wide Xproma network, we have a perfect entry into the European market.”

Nele Logemann, sales and partner management at Xproma, says: “We have been working with IAM Robotics on a number of specific projects for months, and are particularly pleased about the positive customer feedback but also about the extremely good cooperation with the IAM Robotics team.

“We are very confident that we will be able to successfully implement projects together.”
