Novanta, which operates business units Celera Motion and ATI Industrial Automation, has announced a new partnership with MassRobotics to help create and scale the next generation of robotics startups. Through the partnership, the company will collaborate with MassRobotics to develop advanced innovations in medical/surgical robotics and to improve robotic productivity.

MassRobotics is an independent, non-profit organization that serves as an innovation hub for robotics and connected devices. The group assists entrepreneurs and startups with the workspaces and resources they need to help develop and commercialize products and solutions.

“We are proud to support MassRobotics in its critical mission to create advanced robotics, particularly in the medical field,” said Matthijs Glastra, CEO of Noventa. “We are fortunate to be in a unique setting in the Boston area, surrounded by the world’s top hospitals, medical laboratories and educational institutions. That has given rise to a unique regional ecosystem of resources – with the necessary talent, knowledge networks, infrastructure and financial resources – to produce the best in medical/surgical robotics.”

Celera Motion provides motion control components and subsystems for OEMs that serve several medical and advanced industrial markets. ATI Industrial Automation is an engineering-based developer of robotic accessories and robot arm tooling. 

“We’re thrilled to partner with MassRobotics to engineer the best innovations for the most demanding applications,” said Robert Little, president and general manager of ATI Industrial Automation. “We love to work with people as passionate about robotics as we are, and we see incredible opportunities ahead for exciting new advancements.”
