Forge by Ready Robotics

Forge Icon

READY Robotics empowers any manufacturer to deploy automation – no experience necessary. From mobile, all-in-one solutions like Forge/Station, to READY Automation Packages featuring all the hardware and software components needed to automate machine tending tasks, READY’s automation solutions are built on Forge/OS, the intuitive, cross-brand robot programming platform.

Easily program robots and deploy automation, transform production, boost output, and solve labor challenges with Forge/OS-powered automation. Automation has never been more accessible.

  • Forge/OS

    • Forge/OS is a revolutionary software platform that brings industry-leading ease-of-use to robots from the top robot OEMs, machine tools and the peripherals needed to automate.
    • Complex coding, proprietary software, and steep learning curves are a thing of the past.
    • Seamlessly control every component in the workcell: robots, peripherals, PLCs, and machine tools.
    • Intuitive, No Code programming featuring a drag-and-drop, flow chart interface.
    • The Benefits of Forge/OS:
      1.  Choose the right robot for your application – not the one you happen to be comfortable programming.
      2.  Slash deployment times.
      3.  Reduce the cost of automation.
      4.  Enable anyone on the manufacturing floor to program robots

  • Forge/Station

    Forge/Station is the Swiss Army knife for automation – a flexible automation solution that enables any manufacturer to get into production in hours – even with no prior automation experience.  Much more than just a robot arm, Forge/Station comes with everything you need to get started immediately. A solid mobile base, pneumatics for controlling machine tools and accessories, remote support connectivity, and an intuitive programming interface that enables anyone to be productive programming a robot in hours. The perfect entry point into automation and also the ideal solution for high-mix low-volume manufacturing environments where ROI can be spread across multiple machines.

    Forge/OS, the award-winning programming interface that powers Forge/Station, makes programming so easy and intuitive that most manufacturers have their Forge/Station into production in hours or days – even with no robotics experience.
