ROBOT POSITIONING

With the upcoming growth of “Industrie 4.0” and “Smart Industry”, machine vision systems will be more commonly used to let flexible robots handle all kind of products. In this application area, our systems identify products and communicate to the robot where and how to pick them up.

Machine-vision makes robotics more flexible and suitable for handling small and rapidly changing series, a need for smart manufacturing.

Another added value is the possibility to integrate a quality-control by visual inspection.

Below you can find a selection of systems we have developed and implemented.

Robotic Cheese Slicer to reduce waste

Robotic Cheese Slicer to reduce waste

In collaboration with Dero B.V., our vision based robot positioning system controls a robotic arm equipped with a cheese slicer. A 3D laser triangulation setup captures the surfaces of the cheese. The surface data is then used for controlling the robotic cheese slicer. Read more

Random bin picking demo cell

We've listened to your wishes and have built a working bin picking demo cell where the powerful combination of vision and robotics is demonstrated. The setup is waiting for your sample to be teached in! Read more
3D random bin picking randomly placed pipes

3D random bin picking randomly placed pipes

After having tested existing software algorithms such as OpenCV and Halcon it became clear that given the required robustness, speed and accuracy a dedicated algorithm needed to be developed. To meet the cycle times an optical and software solution was designed that scan one half of the crate and then stitch the two 3D clouds that are derived from the vision scans. Read more
3D random bin picker Wila

3D random bin picker Wila

3D Binpicking of heavy metal parts, where human handling is not an option. These metal parts can differ from a diffuse surface ( rusty or raw material ) to a reflective surface (Milling or grinding process at Wila). Read more
Random bin picking: go get it!

Random bin picking: go get it!

Random bin picking is gaining terrain in industrial automation. We made a working setup to demonstrate a random bin picking application. The video is just posted on Youtube. Read more
