With TORU Cube it is possible to exactly grasp a single object. TORU Cube is made of a mobile base, a retractable and rotatable column with a gripper system and a removable shelf. The boxgrasper is able to grasp rectangular objects – from small softcovers to shoeboxes up to heavy lexicons. Afterwards the robot is able to store the grasped object in its built-in shelf and deliver it directly to a shippingstation.
Currently only entire containers such as pallets or boxes could be handled automatically. With TORU the individual object grasping becomes possible. The single item is identified and localized by TORU via 2D- and 3D cameras, gripped securely with an adaptive gripper and finally stored in its on board removable shelf. He then brings shelves filled with picked objects directly to a shipping station. With the item-specific handling Magazino allows Pick-by-Robot, hence "bin picking" and closes one of the key gaps in the automation of logistics processes. TORU can be combined with various gripping systems – depending on the texture and size of the required object.
