With the development of vision technology, robots are gaining new practical applications. One of the long-awaited capabilities of robotic arms is bin picking, whereby an industrial machine autonomously picks chaotically arranged parts from crates and containers. This has become possible through the use of advanced vision systems and software that recognizes the contents of the container. Implementing bin-picking systems into production line operations can benefit both industrial companies and their employees.

Efficiently and without accidents

The use of bin-picking on the production line, especially when moving heavy workpieces, relieves the burden on workers and reduces the number of accidents. In addition, bin-picking also benefits the production company:

  • reduces downtime, with each production line stoppage resulting in losses;
  • streamlines the production process, including the fact that it can speed it up;
  • the putting away of workpieces occurs in a repeatable and predictable manner;
  • has the possibility to easily reprogram the robot to perform other tasks or to extend its software with additional bin-picking applications.

Recognition and separation of NOKs

Modern bin-picking systems can be equipped with trained artificial intelligence that recognizes damaged and defective workpieces. This allows the robot to move the defective part to the appropriate bin and exclude it from further production. This is a valuable functionality, as it reduces the workload on workers or machines inspecting product quality and can help increase the efficiency of the production process.


Unitem is the first company I would contact to automate a process. The team's creativity and openness are supported by appropriate technical knowledge and understanding of the customer's needs. The team's way of communicating and support in making decisions on task implementation make a good impression.

How do we implement projects?



The first and most important step in the process. Here, we will understand the problem to be solved or the process to be improved.



Knowing the goal, we will design a solution. We develop the best possible design based on available technology, desired effect, and budget.



The finished machine is tested with the use of parts provided by the customer. The tests are repeated until the machine has achieved all the goals.



Our specialists assemble and start the machine at the customer’s site. We provide the necessary training, schematics, as well as operating instructions.

Guarantee and safety

All the machines we build are safe and meet the most stringent requirements. Our machines are mainly based on PLC control. All the parts we use come from the best manufacturers. We closely adapt the project to customers’ requirements by developing concepts of operation and construction of machines together with them. We choose the most simple and most durable solutions when designing industrial machines and building robotic production machines. An example is our leak testing machines, where the proposed solutions reduce the test time up to 80% of the time. This makes the machines we build cheaper, more durable, and less complicated.

In doing so, we are not afraid to use non-standard ways of manufacturing parts. We also often offer customers alternative approaches to their production processes. This results in savings and increased durability of the assembly machines we build. We strive to establish long relationships with customers on a win-win business basis.

We are a recommended system integrator, so we have regular customers to whom we automate production processes.
