Last month, PICK-PLACE was presented at a forum on advanced industrial solutions, including fields such as robotics, laser and machining for manufacturing, Zero Defect Manufacturing (ZDM), talent management in SMART environments, and other relevant trends.
The forum, entitled “What and how will be produced in 2050?” was organized by IMHE in collaboration with research centers ACORDE, IK4-TEKNIKER and IK4-IDECO, and hosted by project parner IK4-TEKNIKER at their headquarters in Eibar (Basque Country, Spain). The forum also received the support of NSK, SCHUNK, STÄUBLI, STRATASYS and VARGUS.
Bin picking and pick-and-place were one of the main focuses in the area of robotics for manufacturing. Different solutions were presented, including artificial vision and robotics for manipulation. PICK-PLACE’s approach and progress beyond the current state of the art was also discussed. Patxi López Sesma, member of the Technology Transfer Office at IK4-TEKNIKER, as well as Loreto Susperregi, Robotics Research coordinator, were in charge of presenting these contents.

The forum “What and how will be produced in 2025?” has already been organized for a few years, thanks to sustained interest in local industrial companies. This year’s edition was also fully booked by machining and manufacturing companies.
