Otta's take

Theo Margolius headshot

Theo Margolius

COO of Otta

The increase in demand for rapid fulfillment of product manufacturing suggests that human staffing is not a sustainable option. Many large businesses rely on automated robotics in order to keep up with the demand, but the process of equipping custom robots for the job is simply too complicated, time-consuming, and expensive for smaller manufacturers.

Rapid Robotics designs automated manufacturing robots that are provided to companies as 'ready to use' robots. The robots combine AI and pre-determined programming to tackle a wide variety of specific tasks that are ubiquitous within manufacturing assembly lines. The AI is employed to provide flexibility within the pre-programmed robotic abilities, allowing the robots to adapt to the specific parameters and dimensions of the required task.

Robotic innovation is a huge industry, and Rapid Robotics has found a niche in the market by providing ready-to-use robots that are flexible, inexpensive, and require minimal setup. This opens up autonomous manufacturing to smaller businesses, providing them with a means to keep up with ever-increasing demands.
