On this page, we share our current status and the development history on the Robot Separator.

As one of our software engineers explains in one of the videos below: “We’ve made a good progress but we are still aiming for a higher throughput. It’s a long process to develop such a system from scratch but we are confident that now we have a system that really does the job.” Scroll down to watch all development steps.

Fully automatic separation of garments and textiles


The Robot Separator helps to separate garments and textiles and is optimal for feeding scanner systems at high speed as we use modern 3D cameras and advanced software to find the best gripping points on the garments.

Development Start: June 2015

Inwatec started with the idea of creating a robot that automatically separates garment to load it into our X-ray and sorting systems individually.
