Today the use of collaborative robots in automation has lowered the barrier to entry by reducing complexity and the investment cost to setup production. This can enable more companies to automate their production and thereby remain competitive.
But collaborative robots need tools to make them perform a function. Some of these tools will need to be made for the use case specifically if they do not already exist to buy.
There is an opportunity to enter the surrounding collaborative robot market and be part of and shape the ecosystem. Specifically within dispensing equipment there are no solutions made that are fully integrated with the robot. When the tools are fully integrated it will again enable more and smaller companies to automate as the solutions will work with the robot without the need for special expertise, bespoke solutions and more control units. It makes the systems fully plug& play and the robot truly flexible.

There is an opportunity to enter the surrounding collaborative robot market and be part of and shape the ecosystem. Specifically within dispensing equipment there are no solutions made that are fully integrated with the robot. When the tools are fully integrated it will again enable more and smaller companies to automate as the solutions will work with the robot without the need for special expertise, bespoke solutions and more control units. It makes the systems fully plug& play and the robot truly flexible.
Aim Robotics have made a dispensing-tool for robots, from Universal Robots, with a program that is supported through the robots control system. It only requires connection to the robot to be operating as the system is electrically controlled and does not use compressed air to dispense. There is one company (Fancort) that delivers a dispensing solution to use on Universal Robots which is integrated into the control system but we differ by delivering a more consistent dispensing system as we do not use compressed air.
The market for collaborative robots is rapidly growing. We focus our efforts on delivering end-effectors made for Universal Robots as they have almost 50% of the market share in the world. They have sold more than 30.000 so far and sold 14.000 in 2019. We estimate that 5% of these will need a dispensing unit and this share will grow when we deliver a solution that simplifies automated dispensing.
Our first product is for standard 400ml cartridges (grease, silicone) with integrated software. This can be adapted to fit 310ml cartridges. We are currently testing our first build and will do pilots in Q1. Our second product will dispense with 30 or 50ml syringes and can be used for thicker fluids (silicone, glue, putty). This is currently a proof of concept (3D printed) version.
We hope to launch our first product and pilot our second product Q2.
