Robotic bin picking is incredibly important as it is able to take the tedious, monotonous tasks off of workers hands. It is able to effectively handle bulk parts sorting, dangerous operations, and/or labor-intensive order fulfillment. Because of its complexity, random bin picking has yet to be perfected or completely grasped by automation systems. However, visionaries are pioneering their way into that uncharted territory.

Industrial robots move with great force and can easily injure worker if he/she enters a work space during operation. For this reason, robots are contained behind curtains, fencing, or other barriers for the safety and protection of human workers. This is great for some operations, but other automation businesses need just a little more flexibility.
ABB made sure to answer their customer’s requests and demands when designing the new ABB IRB 1660ID. Late nights and intelligent minds came together to create a robot that would increase productivity, reduce cycle times, and deliver better work piece quality. According to Dr.
