An eye on everything – the expert for robotics applications
Picking up components
Feeding systems in a production line are becoming increasigly versatile – in addition to universal trays, components can be supplied with utmost flexibility using hopper feeders. Thanks to the VISOR® Robotic, components can be reliably located and gripped with both feed options. When loose components are supplied, the sensor not only checks their position but also inspects the free space around the gripper. The VISOR® determines both sets of information and sends them to the robot controller via one of the integrated and standardised process interfaces. The process is managed on the basis of this information – the object is gripped or the feeder is triggered. The application can also be flexibly adapted to individual goods carriers without the need for a costly centring device. The VISOR® detects the position and the fill level of the tray and transmits this information to the robot. If the camera is mounted in a stationary manner, this is cycle time-neutral.
