Robotics for Induction

OSARO® Robotic Induction System

The OSARO Robotic Induction System automates the picking and placing of items onto conveyors for scanning, sortation, or any other downstream process in a warehouse brimming with product for delivery. A single robot arm can handle boxes up to 11 pounds and process 1,500+ items an hour. 

This system delivers high-throughput rates in production – that’s human-equivalent performance - with less overhead while relieving labor shortage issues and creating superior return on investment.

Keeping pace with relentless e-commerce demand has been especially challenging for highly monotonous tasks, such as induction – moving a package from one place to another on a conveyor. Done almost entirely by human hands, this chore is harder than it looks to automate. OSARO’s AI-driven vision and control software allows the robot to “see” the object, make a decision about how and when to grasp items constantly coming at it, and then place it on a moving surface. 


The OSARO Robotic Induction System utilizes AI-driven vision and control technology to achieve effective grasping, orienting and placing movements in four key steps:

  • A mix of items flow to the robot which is integrated with a conveyance system.

  • The robot chooses which individual item to pick, and how to best pick it using a multi-suction cup end effector.

  • The item is grasped by the robot, transitioned, and properly oriented for placement.

  • The robot places the item into unoccupied spaces on the conveyor.


  • Reliably process a vast range of item shapes, sizes, materials and packaging — shiny, reflective, deformable, illustrated — no problem.

  • Handle items without previous registration Adapt to changing packaging (type, size, color, print, material) on the fly. Optimal item placement 

  • Maximize downstream success by placing items in a specified orientation into empty spaces on a moving conveyor that is occupied with items.

  • Choose from a range of purchase/lease options. OSARO offers Robot-as-a-Service (RaaS) contracts.
