Markham Headquartered Bluewrist Show Their Skills with Live CoBot Demo at Collision | York Link Tech Interview


Markham, York Region headquartered Bluewrist will be showcasing their vision and robotics solutions live at Collision Conference with a collaborative robot (cobot) that can work safely alongside humans.

This is the first year that Collision, North America’s fastest growing tech conference, is being held in Toronto, Canada. The 3-day event is expected to attract over 25,000 people. The York Link team is excited to bring the #YRtech Experience Pavilion to #CollisionConf 2019 in Toronto!Eight companies and four major innovation partners, plus a few innovation startups from across the Region will be showcasing their technology and even recruiting tech talent along the way. York Region has a thriving tech community with over 4,300 tech companies, the second largest tech cluster in the Toronto area and Canada.

In our latest #YRtech series interview we’re catching up with Markham, York Region headquartered vision and robotic solutions scale-up Bluewrist. We caught up with their team to ask a few questions about their presence at Collision, the future of their industry, and what they are looking for in prospective tech talent.

Bluewrist RobotWith such a large and varied audience attending Collision, who does Bluewrist hope to connect with at the conference and why?

With our presence in York Region’s #YRtech Experience Pavilion, we are hoping to connect with potential partners and customers that will benefit from our products and offering and increase our brand awareness in order to drive our technology forward in the manufacturing sector.

Can you talk about the technology Bluewrist will be demonstrating within the #YRtech Experience Pavilion and offer some thoughts on being part of this unique regional technology showcase at Collision?

We are showcasing technology that will become an integral part of Industry 4.0, which is the next revolution in manufacturing. Our technology demo features a collaborative robot that can work alongside humans, with 3D vision inspection capabilities to detect and prevent manufacturing defects which makes products safer and better.

Bluewrist industrial communications software comXtream powers our solution, which enables the inter-connectivity of various network-capable industrial devices to form an intelligent factory automation system.

Looking into the future, how will technology continue to transform your company and industry?

Our software runs on standard PCs and that industry is continuously evolving which opens up new possibilities for our inspection solutions. With faster CPUs and GPUs, Bluewrist can tackle complex inspection projects that is otherwise not possible in the past due to cycle time limitation. With better network infrastructures and 5G technology deployment, our solutions will benefit from better cloud delivery architecture and will offer more scalability and flexibility for our customers.

With 100% inline inspection, manufacturers do not have to compromise on quality control and deliver better products to the end customers. As more industrial devices become network capable, our industrial communications software platform comXtream will greatly simplify the management and deployment of such hardware in the manufacturing sector.

For tech talent on the hunt for a career in this area of tech what skills will set them apart?

We’re always looking for tech talent that:

• has the ability to understand, solve and own complex problems.
• is ready to be part of a high growth Canadian technology company with the ambition of expanding globally.
• has exposure to the latest in robotics, 3D vision sensors and cool unannounced products from some of the world’s top manufacturers in a variety of industries.
