We cover all aspects of custom robotics solutions development from start to finish. This includes in-house CAD design, machine control software development, machine building, safety, testing and commissioning. Our team of professional engineers cover a broad range of disciplines, enabling us to develop the best solution for your needs.
We can also integrate off-the-shelf robots as well, and recommend this option where suitable as the cost of these systems has significantly reduced in recent times.
Numerous robots have been designed and developed for herd testing laboratories in New Zealand and abroad. These robots typically handle milk samples from farms and prepare them for further processing or analysis.
Some of the robotic tasks include barcode scanning, capping, de-capping, stirring, shaking, weighing, heating, pipetting and combining samples, as well as interfacing with other laboratory testing equipment. These robots are very unique because in addition to their functional abilities, they can process large amounts of data. The robots can create files, read and write data to file, transfer files or interact with office computers on a network. This ability to robustly control the flow of data helps guarantee the traceability of the samples. For example, relating a sample back to a particular animal on a particular farm.
