Build With Robots is creating opportunities for CoBot startups

Robots are changing the world, but not in the way that many people think. Robots are not replacing people – instead, robots are enabling the next generation of tools to offload dull, dirty and dangerous tasks. This is completely changing how things are done and made. Right now, robotic arms, sensors and AI make the next generations of tools possible. Robotic solutions can be deployed into many new industries and applications. Most industries are unaware of this possibility, and Build With Robots is helping to close the last mile of industry-specific integration.

At Build With Robots, we help entrepreneurs and businesses develop new automation solutions to grow and expand into new markets. We are working with partners to deploy automation solutions across industries as diverse as aerospace, construction, medicine, and advanced manufacturing. We accomplish this by providing access to:

  • Integrated smart robotic solutions & technology
  • A smart automation software development environment and IP for faster deployment
  • A systematic process to greatly accelerate market entry
  • Startup equipment and capital

Contact us if you are an entrepreneur or entrepreneurial company looking to create the next generation of automation solutions and new market-leading products.

Kane Robotics launches in Albuquerque to serve aerospace industry

Robotic Composite Bond Preparation Solution from Kane Robotics

Kane Robotics has selected Albuquerque, New Mexico, for the company’s new headquarters. Kane will hire and train workers in Albuquerque to develop robotic systems that finish aerospace structures using technology developed in partnership with Build With Robots. These innovative robotic grinding and sanding solutions help Kane’s aerospace customers increase worker productivity, improve quality and decrease waste.

Kane Robotics is a spinoff of Kane Aerospace, which is located in Chino, California. The company is planning to hire 20 new employees in Albuquerque within the next two years to do design, manufacturing and testing.

Incubating CoBot startups is part of New Mexico’s economic solution

PBS NewsHour segment on economic development in New Mexico

Build With Robots makes a brief appearance in this PBS NewsHour segment on economic development initiatives within New Mexico. Our mission to incubate cobot-based business opportunities in New Mexico is part of the solution.

While much of the U.S. economy is on the rebound, New Mexico remains in the dumps since the recession hit a decade ago. Part of the problem may be a statewide brain drain: educated young people taking their careers — and expertise — elsewhere. Economics correspondent Paul Solman reports on New Mexico’s mission to bring back its young, energetic entrepreneurs.

Automating Non-Destructive Testing with CoBots

Vibrant’s non-destructive testing solution for aircraft bolts

Build With Robots partnered with Albuquerque-based Vibrant Corporation to automate Vibrant’s Resonance Ultrasound Spectroscopy test systems using collaborative robots. This third generation robot solution uses CoBots to greatly reduce the automation complexity, system cost and integration effort. Notice that this new CoBot automation solution eliminates the safety caging and interlocking required for conventional robots.

Vibrant’s non-destructive testing (NDT) solution collects ultrasonic resonance data and uses advanced pattern recognition and data analytics to inspect aerospace components ranging from engine components to the aircraft bolts shown in the video. This NDT system performs accurate, fast and automated inspections for material variations, geometric variations, and defects that affect structural integrity.
