Tuesday, Sep 22, 2015

“Offering automated systems to the mail order, central fill and specialty pharmacy industries as well as drug manufacturers and drug re-packagers is a natural expansion of our automated process tools and software for the pharmaceutical industry,” mentioned Tim Chambers, CEO of RXAS. “We are excited to partner with other industry experts.”

RXAS has built custom pharmaceutical equipment for eleven years. Their product offerings include the world’s fastest and most reliable packaging systems and pill counters, which are complemented by software for process quality control and item validation.

“This solution leverages the breadth of our robots by using versatile six-axis and high-speed delta models to bring automation to pharmaceutical applications,” said Roger Christian, vice president of business development and marketing for Yaskawa Motoman.

Universal’s patented Neocortex® artificial intelligence software – the leading AI product in the industry – adds intelligence to 3D vision, enabling robots to recognize a wide range of random unit of use items.

David Peters, CEO of Universal Robotics, stated, “Neocortex machine learning-based 3D vision provides unprecedented flexibility to allow the robot to handle an unlimited number unit of use containers.”
