Automation Speeds Up with New Sidebot

New sidebot, Wyzo, launches with high-speed operation coupled with versatility.


Wyzo is a new high-speed pick-and-place sidebot, designed to work side-by-side with human employees for lightweight applications in the food & beverage, consumer goods, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, automotive, electrical and electronics sectors. Workers are able to work very closely with the automated technology due to an advanced safety system. The new company says its produces picks at 80 cycles per minute thanks to the high-tech robotic arm and built-in or external vision systems. 

Per Wyzo

  • To meet a wide variety of production needs, Wyzo is designed to fit anywhere on the production floor. At less than 0.5 m2 and just 1.80 meters in height, the sidebot fits through standard doors and elevators, offering unprecedented flexibility with a small footprint. It can easily be moved from one workstation to another, eliminating bottlenecks and enabling fast ROI.
  • For manufacturers switching between products, Wyzo is highly compatible with all regular grippers on the market with changeover speeds of less than nine seconds. To meet ever-changing production demands, it also offers integrated pneumatic, electric and vacuum controls.
  • Wyzo’s Human Machine Interface (HMI) is simplified for intuitive use by operators with no prior training in automated solutions. Its mobile terminal is as easy to operate as a smartphone and requires neither script nor programming to get Wyzo up and running. Based on more than 30 years of software development for Delta robots, Wyzo’s state-of-the-art pick-and-place software has been specially refined for ease of use and control.
