What is Robotic Pick & Place?

Robotic pick and place is an automated process which 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 and 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. Pick and place 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 and 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 pick and place lines, or can manufacture a complete bespoke turnkey solution automating all aspects of the pick and place 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, pick and place systems also require a camera or vision system. Enabling the robot to pick up 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 opensided 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 pick and place companion.
