HS News Systems is exploring new technology in order to offer more comprehensive solutions for warehousing, automation and intralogistics.

“We are always looking for ways to improve our solutions and to offer our customers updated technology”, Martine Y. Hognestad, Managing Director at HS News Systems, says.

Development and integration of robot technology

In order to fully realise the benefits and maximise the potential of robot technology, HS News Systems are investing in in-house robotic equipment. This enables them to provide fast experimentation, research and development of new solutions, along with increased quality control testing.

The robot technicians at HS News Systems possess the latest technical knowledge on how to best integrate robot technology into new and existing solutions.

Automation Technician Henrik Hansen at HS News Systems is Head of robotic solutions and integration. He has been working with PLC programming and development at HS News Systems for seven years.

Exciting potential and possibilities

“The small collaborative robot (cobot) from Universal Robots has very good developer tools, and we look forward to apply them to test different tasks. We are also exploring opportunities with robot vision utilising a 3D camera. The potential and possibilities are very exciting to us”, Henrik says.

Developing increased Robot intelligence is a continuing project within HS News Systems. A main goal is to develop Robot technology sufficiently, so the robots can teach themselves to perform tasks successfully based on a simple task description.

“It is of strategic importance that we should develop new solutions for our existing customers. It is also important in our aim of reaching new markets”, Martine says.
