What is Robotic Pick & Place?

Robotic Pick & place is an automated process that involves an industrial robot with a vision system or camera moving parts from a production line and either packaging them or moving to another line. Typically this is done at high speeds and requires high levels of accuracy in order for the process to run efficiently. 

Due to the speed needed in many pick & place processes, a SCARA robot is typically used, although industrial robots are also used when heavier loads or less vigorous speed and smaller volumes are needed. This type of automation can cover processes that require multiple parts being moved every second, or every minute, and depending on the requirements, the solution can vary in size.

Picking The Right Solution

If you’re in pharmaceuticals, food packaging, automotive, or logistics, automated pick & place is the ideal robotic solution for you to increase your efficiency, run at a greater output, and generally future proof your business. Bauromat has the ability to manufacture small, robot only solutions to integrate into existing automated lines, or can manufacture a complete bespoke turnkey solution automating all aspects of requirements. 

With leading partnerships in a variety of industries, you’ll be safe in the knowledge that your automation system features products of the highest quality. We can integrate all types of robots, from SCARA to traditional six-axis industrial and collaborative robots, these systems also require a camera or vision system. Enabling the robot to handle parts accurately and consistently, most robot manufacturers have their own vision systems, but Bauromat also works with standalone vision system providers and will work closely with the end-user to get the best possible solution.

Let’s Work Out Your Solution Together

Our philosophy put’s the customer’s requirements at the heart from the first meeting and onwards until commission and installation. We call it ‘integration from day one, and like our automated solutions ensure high-quality communications with the customer at all stages of the process. Understanding the process and the requirements is key, and in learning this through the initial conversations with the customer, we ensure the best final results possible. You can find out more about our philosophy and how we work closely with the customer from enquiry, through to design, manufacture, and commission.


Bauromat’s flexible automation solution BAURO-MATE is the ideal automation system for pick and place requirements. Designed to be applied in a number of industries, for a number of applications, BAURO-MATE is a blank canvas to be customised specifically for pick and place applications. Featuring two independent halves, or as a single open-sided robotic solution BAURO-MATE can easily be integrated into existing lines or can be designed from the ground up as a bespoke solution. Able to house a small handling robot or fast-moving 4-axis SCARA robot, BAURO-MATE is your next robotic companion.

    Pick & Place FAQ's

    A pick and place machine does exactly what it says on the tin. Using a programmed robot, the system collects a part from one place and moves it to another part of the production line.

    These robots are programmed through a teach pendant like all industrial robots. A bit like a tablet, the teach pendant controls all aspects of the industrial robot. When being programmed, the users control each axis, moving the robot from point-to-point and recording each move. These are saved into a program and can be run automatically by the industrial robot over and over again.

    These robots can work far quicker than traditional manual techniques at moving parts from A to B, working continuously over multiple shifts to help businesses grow and become more efficient.
