In the news: Bastian Solutions ProMat 2019 Interview

chris_morgan_interview_industrysageAfter getting blown away by the company’s transparent truck trailer and ULTRA robot last year at MODEX, joining Bastian Solutions at Promat was a no-brainer for us.

“We’re trying to do the most fun things out there… We’re in all areas such as autonomous vehicles, robotic picking, robot arms, conveyance delivery, reach trucks, anything that you can think of. If you can dream it, we can build it.”

Bastion focused this year on their new Robotic Shuttle as the central focus of their display. They created the shuttle in response to the demands of modern e-commerce. Rapid delivery, more specifically.

The arm differentiates between products to pick as needed. It also employs AI and predictive analytics to continually learn and improve its techniques over time.
