RIO Robotic Input-Output buffer

The RIO Robotic Input-Output buffer is a portable pack-in/pack-out system for automotive part handling and other applications. Base supply includes engineering and manufacturing for most gripper tooling, plus electrical controls programming for the vision-guided robot. Standard RIO comes at an attractive base price $15,000 USD* below similar products in its class. Unlike custom solutions by its competitors, RIO is fully portable via forklift truck. It can be used permanently as a buffering system designed into a layout, or it can be transported and used as-needed on existing systems that lack sufficient buffering. To ease the portability of the RIO, its gripper relies on a servo motor instead of plant air, so no pneumatic air drops are necessary.

After initial acquisition, the RIO's potential for savings increase. Because the RIO uses a standard gripper and flexible vision guidance system it can be more easily redeployed when the line configuration changes. Retrofit mechanical engineering and controls programming services can be supplied at a savings of up to 70% compared to retools for similar products.*
