Veo Robotics raises $12 million to help machines and humans collaborate more efficiently

BÉRÉNICE MAGISTRETTI for VentureBeat:  Veo Robotics, which is building a smarter, more intuitive robotics system for industrial applications, announced today that it has secured $12 million in funding. Lux Capital and GV co-led this round, with participation from existing investor Next 47 — a venture firm created by Siemens.

Founded in 2016, the Cambridge, Massachusetts-based startup provides AI-powered software that tells machines how to act and respond to humans in a manual labor setting. The system is paired with hardware, which includes a GPU compute engine and distributed 3D sensors.

“Our system builds a unified, semantic representation of what is happening in the workcell — where the robots are, where the people are, where the workpieces are,” wrote Veo Robotics cofounder and CEO Patrick Sobalvarro, in an email to VentureBeat. “It then projects into the future where those elements could move in the next 100 milliseconds and uses intelligent controls to override the robot programming and make it responsive to the human worker’s presence.”  Full Article:

EXAIR’s Cold Gun Aircoolant System

EXAIR's Cold Gun Aircoolant System

Replace messy mist systems - improve dry machining with clean, cold air! The Cold Gun Aircoolant System is a new solution to an old problem. Heat build up on dry machining operations reduces tool life and machining rates. The Cold Gun produces a stream of clean, cold air at 50°F (28°C) below supply air temperature. Operation is quiet and there are no moving parts to wear out. It will remove heat to prolong tool life and increase productivity on machining operations. The Cold Gun is also an alternative to expensive mist systems. It eliminates the costs associated with the purchase and disposal of cutting fluids and worker related health problems from breathing airborne coolants or slipping on wet floors. EXAIR's Cold Gun and High Power Cold Gun are non-adjustable to prevent freeze-up during use. Cold airflow and temperature drop are factory set to optimize the gun's cooling capability.
