Robotics technology has time and again proven to deliver unmatched operational efficiency that is simply unattainable through human labour. By eliminating redundancy through automation, carrying out mundane and less-productive tasks, and minimizing (or sometimes eliminating) the scope for errors, robotics has empowered human beings to focus on more business-critical tasks. However, the implementation of robotics/automation technology can turn out to be quite a challenging endeavour for manufacturers and OEMs alike. Technicon—pioneer of industrial robotics and automation technology—resolves the above conundrum by infusing modularity into the implementation and orchestration of robotics, thereby provisioning user-friendly solutions and faster integrations.
“We offer modular plug and play solutions that can be integrated easily by the customers themselves without any significant investments,” says Casper Hansen, the CEO of the company. Although Technicon can assist customers with integration services, the company encourages clients to carryout such implementation processes autonomously. This approach not only reduces the financial investments and risks but also allows the company to focus on developing user-friendly and reliable robotic solutions exclusively. Thus, small and medium enterprises can reap the benefits of greater agility, flexibility, and operation capacity through robotics with absolutely no hindrances in implementation processes.
The company constantly pushes the boundaries in robotic technologies by partnering with other like-minded organizations, based either in Denmark or abroad, to improve its existing portfolio of solutions or develop new ones. “Through one of our collaboration, we have developed a robot for inspection and repair of composite space structures for the aerospace industry,” reveals Hansen.

Similarly, the company has also created a robot that made it easier for the users to create high-quality products using thin composite materials. Technicon has also developed disinfection robots that use UV-C lights to sanitize surfaces and help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
The company’s engagement with a Danish spring roll manufacturer further highlights its capabilities of providing best-in-class robot solution. As the client produced a million spring rolls on a daily basis, it required cabbages that were turned, weighed, and assessed by factory employees. But this entire task was repetitive and time-consuming. By using artificial intelligence (AI) and cameras, Technicon created a solution that could oversee the work done by the employees consistently, reduce waste, and make the process more productive for the client. Even though the cabbages varied in size, diameter, and shape, the AI engine and cameras could identify the orientation and determine how much of the core of the cabbage needs to be drilled. Thus, this solution, advocating food to be handled more accurately and hygienically, can have a significant benefit in the food industry, all the while handling the raw materials efficiently.
In another instance, robotics researchers from a Denmark based university utilized Technicon’s solution to develop the world’s first fully automatic robot to test for the COVID-19 virus among individuals. Not only did the solution reduce the exposure of healthcare professionals to the virus, but it also delivered test results in a matter of minutes without any compromise on accuracy.
Actualizing numerous such applications of automation and robotics technology, the company is looking forward to leveraging proven technologies such as (AI), the internet of things (IoT), and 5G to develop more modular capabilities and bring forth faster deployment. It is also drawing inspiration from the user-friendly nature of AI-infused home appliances such as Google Nest and directing it towards the field of automation in manufacturing and other industries.
