Mobile robot platform wins 2015 EC Business Innovation Observatory Award
Swedish OpiFlex has been awarded the 2015 European Commission Business Innovation Observatory Award, Robotdalen reports. OpiFlex was selected based on the uniqueness of the technology, the ability of management , the potential to grow internationally as well as the size of the total addressable market.
OpiFlex has developed a mobile robot platform, which allows a robot cell that is typically fixed in its place to be moved in its entirety, either manually or by means of Autonomous Guided Vehicle (AGV) software. The platform provides the same high stability and precision operation as fixed robots, through its docking station.
As one of the first companies in the world, OpiFlex has developed a solution that makes automation economically feasible for small series production (and in the future perhaps even handicraft).
