Sarcos Technology and Robotics Corp. yesterday shared that it is working with manufacturing solutions provider Jabil Inc. to help it manufacturer its product line.
Under the terms of the agreement, Sarcos will leverage Jabil’s broad manufacturing services to produce a variety of leading-edge robotic systems and sub-systems.
Sarcos also will be able to take advantage of Jabil’s global footprint, strategic supplier relationships, and state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities to accelerate volume production while benefiting from advanced supply chain, procurement, and component-sourcing solutions.
Jabil will help manufactuer Guardian XT robotic systems
Salt Lake City-based Saros produces exoskeleton robotic systems and teleoperation systems for a range of industries, including defense, construction, and supply chain. Sarcos noted it anticipates that Jabil will primarily produce sub-systems particularly for the Guardian XT dexterous robotic system and may also include the Guardian XM intelligent robotic system and Guardian Sea Class Robotic System. In 2023, final system assembly is expected to take place at Sarcos facilities.
“We expect that our relationship with Jabil will advance Sarcos’ manufacturing capabilities tremendously, helping to augment our overall production capacity and enabling us to scale much faster than we could without their support,” said Kiva Allgood, president and CEO, Sarcos. “We are excited to work with a proven manufacturing services leader that has a long-standing record of success and an established global network of vendors and partners as we begin delivering our robotic systems to our customers.”
“Jabil is pleased to provide our value-added manufacturing services, which we are confident will expand Sarcos’ overall production capacity in a highly cost-effective and efficient manner,” said Craig Trotter, vice president of the capital equipment business unit, Jabil. “Our deep expertise in materials science, mechanical assembly, and human-machine interfaces, along with final assembly and test, will prove pivotal in accelerating world-class production of Sarcos’ industry-leading robotic systems and sub-systems.”
