Path Robotics, a Columbus, OH-based AI Robotics company designing an autonomous robotic welding system, raised $56m in Series B funding.
The round, which brought total funding raised to date to $71m, was led by Addition with participation from returning investors Drive Capital, Basis Set, and Lemnos Lab.
The company will use the funds to continue to expand its operations and development efforts.
Co-founded by brothers Andy and Alex Lonsberry, Matt Klein and their father, Ken Lonsberry, Path Robotics is developing artificial intelligence, machine learning, and computer vision systems to make industrial robots intelligent.
Through proprietary scanning and computer vision technology, the system can see and understand nearly any part it’s given with the ability to self-adjust for each unique part. It analyzes where a weld is needed and generates all the planning to execute a clean weld nearly instantly. The system was designed to operate precisely in a manufacturing environment and with highly reflective materials.
