Shape Partners With Mujin To Deliver Advanced, Intelligent Solutions for North American Warehouses.

Global system integrator Shape Process Automation and robotics technology company Mujin to showcase mixed-case  depalletizing and palletizing solution in booth #805 at Automate June 6-9 in Detroit  

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan and ATLANTAMay 24, 2022— Robotic system integrator and process cutting solutions  provider Shape Process Automation (SPA) and robotics technology company Mujin today announced a collaboration to  enhance SPA’s robotic automation solutions with Mujin’s intelligent robotics platform. At Automate 2022 Show and  Conference June 6-9 in Detroit, SPA and Mujin will showcase a Mujin-powered mixed-case depalletizing and palletizing  solution. 

The SPA/Mujin collaboration is designed to more quickly bring difficult-to-automate tasks such as mixed-case  depalletizing and palletizing to a greater number of warehouses and manufacturing facilities throughout North America.  SPA is an integrator for the top robotic manufacturers, including Fanuc, one of several robot arms compatible with  Mujin’s flagship product, the MujinController. To facilitate these applications, the MujinController uses machine  intelligence, a type of AI that automatically manages potential downtime scenarios through perception, autonomous  decision making, and real-time motion planning without the need for human intervention.  

“The joining of Shape Process Automation’s and Mujin’s advanced technology and system integration capabilities will  allow us to enhance our customers manufacturing operations, as well as discover new opportunities within Industrial  Automation,” said Nino LaDuca, President, Shape Process Automation Group. “This partnership came at a perfect time  since we are celebrating 50 years of providing intelligent automation solutions worldwide.”  

Ross Diankov, co-founder of Mujin, expects immediate benefits for joint customers struggling to automate the labor intensive depalletizing and palletizing applications, among others. “SPA’s experience and reputation in deploying  robotics automation solutions make them an ideal fit as Mujin seeks to empower the North American logistics market  with Mujin’s revolutionary machine intelligence,” Diankov said. “Together, we can accelerate a new wave of robotics  technology in the U.S. and help to advance the vision of a completely autonomous warehouse.” 

In addition to the Mujin-powered depalletizing and palletizing application, Shape Process Automation will also feature  its innovative robotic laser cutting solution showcasing how its Newton technology can increase part throughput and  dimensional quality compared to traditional CNC cutting processes, specifically when dealing with EV lightweight  materials. This demo will specifically focus on how battery trays can be manufactured and assembled.
