Conventional robot programming is highly difficult and heavily fragmented with the use of proprietary programming languages and extensive training being the industry norm.
As a result, 70 percent of the lifetime costs of robot ownership are software and programming related, and a compounding cost is involved in automating high-mix production environments.
Founded in 2019, Augmentus’ AI-robotics platform eliminates the need for technical expertise and CAD files in robotics through its proprietary 3D scanning and robot motion planning technologies.
With Augmentus, non-technical operators are able to program industrial and collaborative robots in minutes even for precise, complex and high-mix processes.
Since its launch, Augmentus has achieved rapid growth and is working with manufacturing companies to deploy for various applications. Their customers span across various industries including aerospace, automotive, maritime, and supply chain for surface treatment, finishing and welding applications.
With the Augmentus platform, customers have attained up to 70 percent cost reduction and 21 times faster deployments compared to traditional methods while maintaining a high standard of accuracy.
Augmentus currently supports major robot manufacturers, including ABB, Universal Robots, Kuka, and Nachi, and has plans to further expand its compatibility with more robot brands and peripheral hardware.
Augmentus’ expansion into the US is a key part of the company’s growth strategy, and the exhibition at the Rockwell Automation Fair in Chicago provides the opportunity for manufacturers across the region to experience flexibility and power of no-code Scan and Plan robotics.
