Olis Robotics and Kawasaki Robotics Inc. have struck a partnership that will make Olis remote monitoring and error recovery software available for any Kawasaki robot model starting in the second quarter of this year.

The new offering is aimed at helping users restart production quickly, reduce troubleshooting and downtime costs, and gain access to support quickly, the two robotics companies state in a release.

“Our new partnership supports the industry gamut from smaller first-time end users and their integrator partners up to more complex AI-driven applications in larger plants,” said Paul Marcovecchio, director GI business unit, Kawasaki Robotics Inc. “All stakeholders can now easily and cost-effectively monitor, access, and recover their robot cells remotely.”

The Olis system connects directly to robots through an on-premises device via a secure connection. To help ensure physical safety, it is designed to obey the robot controller’s safety restrictions.

The system alerts users when a robot stops unexpectedly or fails when picking or placing a part. After a system failure, the user can run a tool inspection routine and perform remote error recovery, allowing the robot to resume its cycle and get back to work.
