GrayMatter Robotics Unveils 4th Generation AI-Powered Scan&Sand™ Robot To Address Manufacturing Backlog, Improve Workplace Safety, and Increase Sustainability

  • The 4th Generation Scan&Sand™ works two times faster than a human. Training that usually takes six months for humans now only takes one day.
  • The robot helps businesses address sustainability goals, resulting in 30-50% reduction in consumable waste, and 26% less energy consumed than traditional methods.
  • Manufacturers have nearly uninterrupted operations with a system reliability rate of 98% and errors fixed in under five minutes.

GrayMatter Robotics, a leader in AI and robotics, today announced the launch of its fourth generation of Scan&Sand™. This innovative robotic solution is powered by GrayMatter’s proprietary physics-informed AI technologies, GMR-AI™ and GMR-Guardian™, which are integral to all their solutions. The newest Scan&Sand™ generation offers significantly faster speeds and higher reliability and is more sustainable than previous generations, boosting human productivity and eliminating ergonomically challenging work.

The $6.4T U.S. manufacturing industry is grappling with a growing backlog of unfilled orders due to a labor shortage. Dangerous and demanding jobs that require lengthy training are a key culprit behind the need to fill 3.8M manufacturing jobs. With nearly half of orders on hold waiting to be fulfilled, Scan&Sand™ is tackling the manufacturing backlog by automating the work, allowing manufacturers to increase productivity, improve safety, upskill, and optimize their workforce.

The 4th Generation Scan&Sand™ brings sophisticated sensing for metrics like how long it takes operators to complete tasks and ergonomic scores for safety, so business owners can make data-driven decisions to improve work for their teams. With Scan&Sand™, carpal tunnel syndrome risks have been reduced by 90%, workers are removed from inhaling dangerous dust particles, and production line productivity improved by 30%.

“Our focus is on creating a solution that amplifies human productivity to the maximum possible extent and enables our customers to grow their business despite the extreme labor shortage,” said Ariyan Kabir, Co-founder and CEO at GrayMatter Robotics. “With every new robot deployment, we witness how the introduction of our solution instantly improves worker safety and satisfaction, while unlocking new levels of efficiency and productivity.”

“The latest physics-informed AI approach enables the new Scan&Sand™ solution to offer significant sustainability benefits to our customers by reducing waste and resource consumption,” said Satyandra K. Gupta, Co-founder and Chief Scientist at GrayMatter Robotics. “It also offers an unprecedented level of reliability and resilience in the overall system performance and maximizes the throughput.”

Traditional robotics couldn’t handle these jobs due to product variation and variability. GrayMatter’s technology doesn’t just fill a gap; it opens new opportunities for manufacturers to produce better products due to less variability while opening up new possibilities for professional growth within the workforce.

“We’re not trying to cut our workforce. We’re using this as a tool for growth, but also enabling our workers to produce in a way in which their minds and bodies are not exhausted at the end of the day, and they’re able to do something that they love,” said Melanie Protti-Lawrence, President at Lawrence Brothers. “Where they can move forward and build a new life that they’re proud of, build a career where they know that they are actively participating not only in the local economy, but in the global economy.”

One of the key advantages of Scan&Sand™ is its user-friendly interface, enabling operators with no prior robotics or automation experience to operate the system. The result is that training time for dangerous jobs takes humans up to six months and is reduced to one day. Once up and running, the Scan&Sand™ works 2x faster than humans. This increase in efficiency, plus data to make better decisions across production lines and workflows, saves time, money, and resources for Fortune 100 companies and SMB operators.
