ZenRobotics Recycler is the fastest, most accurate and strongest robotic waste sorting solution. A typical robot with two arms makes up to 4,000 picks per hour and works in two shifts. Finally, multiply that with a three-robot unit that works 24/7 in multiple shifts. That amounts to a mountain of sorted waste!

A single recycling robot can sort many objects of various shapes and sizes in one spot.


Is it for me?

Yes! If you are in the waste sorting industry and plan stay there for a while, robots are definitely for you. Robotic sorting suites all companies looking for efficient and flexible ways to sort waste. Key benefits are cost efficiency, 24/7 automatic recycling and increased profit through flexibility.

What does ZRR sort?

ZRR can sort a variety of materials and objects of various shapes and sizes. Our customers use ZRR to sort metals, different grades of wood and minerals, plastics and cardboard. Due to its accurate sensors and smart software, ZRR can be trained to identify new types of waste.


The robotic system brings endurance a human just cannot deliver: non-stop accuracy and speed.


Working with the ZRR allows us to respond quickly to changes in the quantities and properties of the input materials.
