Rockwell Automation announced a strategic investment in READY Robotics, a software-defined automation provider and a Rockwell Automation Technology Partner.
READY Robotics’ ForgeOS platform helps to enable operators to control and program common brands of robots from a single interface with minimal training. Using Task Canvas, one of the ForgeOS Productivity Apps included with the platform, operators can more quickly create new automation tasks with a no-code, flowchart-based interface.
Rockwell Automation and READY Robotics have collaborated to integrate ForgeOS with Rockwell Automation’s line of Logix controllers and design and simulation software. The combination will help to simplify robot integration and accelerate time-to-market of industrial automation deployments. Rockwell Automation’s investment will foster continued development of the ForgeOS platform, support its integration with Logix, and accelerate adoption across the Rockwell Automation ecosystem of system integrators and technology and channel partners.
