Ever evolving, robotics now can meet most any job in any situation, says Mike Futch, chief executive officer of Tompkins Robotics.
Futch acknowledges that robotics has been around for several years, but things are different today than they were just six or seven years ago. The technology has matured, reliability has taken off, and price points have come down.
“That’s helping people throughout the marketplace, for our customers and people in general,” he says. “It saves on labor, and maximizes capacity, and there’s a wide, wide variety of robotics solutions out there — anything from automated storage and retrieval robots, all the way down to pick-in-place robots, solicitation robots, AMRs and AGVs.”
