Path Robotics released its new Autonomous Fit-up robotic system (AF-1), a robotic cell capable of performing both fit-up and welding of metal parts. The cell enables manufacturers to increase production throughput without the need for hiring fitters, welders and programmers. It leverages proprietary computer vision and AI to autonomously pick, fit-up and weld small parts. Manufacturers simply load in raw components, hit go and come back to a batch of welded parts. The cell runs autonomously for hours with zero human intervention. As part of the RaaS (Robots-as-a-Service) offering, the company provides manufacturers with 24/7 production assistance via its Mission Control command center.
