ZenRobotics Ltd. has appointed Wolfgang Schiller as the company's new CEO, effective immediately. Prior to ZenRobotics, Mr. Schiller was the Vice President Electronics Industry at KUKA AG, a leading supplier of intelligent automation solutions. According to ZenRobotics, as CEO, Schiller will be responsible for further developing ZenRobotics' business and accelerating the uptake of intelligent robots in waste management.
According to ZenRobotics, with their Heavy Picker it's possible to sort large and heavy plastics fractions with high purity before it is shredded. Thanks to this machine's Artificial Intelligence it's possible to sort plastics based on various characteristics. These robots are able to identify objects similar to a human and can be taught to identify and sort specific objects, such as garden furniture, pipes, crates etc. Theycan also sort plastics by polymer or colour, and add flexibility to sorting by allowing customers to sort waste exactly as required.
Swedish waste management company, Lundstams, invests in robotic sorting to increase resource recovery
The Swedish waste management company Lundstams Återvinning AB and Mared AB have agreed on the delivery of ZenRobotics waste sorting robots to one of their facilities in Northern Sweden.
