ABOUT ROBOTIQ

Robotiq writers blog about what drives us as a company and what we consider as the new way of thinking about industrial manufacturing, automation and robotics including: the latest breakthroughs, flexible industrial automation, and high-mix, low- volume manufacturing.

OUR ROBOT GRIPPERs

Robotiq’s servo grippers are designed to handle a wide variety of parts with a single gripper and thus avoids using custom tooling and tool changing systems.

Robotic Companies in Quebec

  
  
  

We met with many people in recent months. Here’s a list of the movers and shakers in Quebec robotics.

1. Research

1.1 Universities

Several world-class laboratories. Click on the links to see their research work.

1.2 Research and Technological Transfer Centres

Help companies with projects that are too risky for systems integrators.

  • Centre de recherche industrielle du Québec (CRIQ)
  • Centre de robotique et de vision artificielle (CRVI)
  • Aerospace Manufacturing Technology Centre (CTFA)
    R&D for advanced robotics solutions for the Canadian aerospace industry.
  • Hydro-Québec’s Research Institute
    With the possible exception of the Space Agency, this is the most impressive robotics facility in Québec. It is home to many highly complex projects for inspecting and repairing Hydro-Québec’s installations, resulting in millions of dollars in savings every year and preventing the interruption of services.
  • Canadian Space Agency
    Users of Dextre and the famous Canadarm. Recently received an extra budget allotment of $100 M exclusively for robotics. This is a significant amount as the entire Agency’s budget has been $300 M a year for the past few years.

2 Companies

2.1 Systems Integrators

Here are a few that I met at the 2008 Automation Rendez-Vous. For a more extensive list, visit the Regroupement des équipementiers en automatisation industrielle.

Vision integrators associated with solutions integrators for turnkey solutions.

2.2 Manufacturers

All top manufacturers of industrial robots have representatives in Quebec.

Other manufacturers of peripherals or software are based in Quebec.

  • ServoRobot
    ServoRobot manufactures production tools for optimizing robotized welding operations
  • Jabez Technologies
    CAD robot programming software
  • Robotiq
    Startup where I am working, manufacturer of robot components
  • Collineo
    Manufacturer of mobile platforms
  • Robomotio
    Despite a number of interesting products, some contracts and a solid researcher base, the company seems to have ceased operations.
