Photoneo is a leading provider of industrial 3D vision, robotic intelligence software, and AI-powered automation solutions. The company’s mission has been to give robots vision and intelligence so that they could help us automate monotonous and risky tasks. Based on its patented 3D sensing technology, Photoneo developed the world’s highest-resolution and highest-accuracy color 3D camera, opening up new perspectives on automation. In combination with robust, machine learning-based robotic intelligence software, Photoneo helps companies in various fields including the automotive, logistics, e-commerce, grocery, and medical industry to improve the performance and efficiency of manufacturing, fulfillment, assembly, and other types of processes.
The customer, an automotive manufacturer, needed an automation solution for the palletization and depalletization of large ABS parts. They decided on a solution where one vision-guided robot operates both processes.
TireDepal by AROTEC allows robots to fully automatically depalletize all common tire carriers with unprecedented performance and flexibility. The solution harnesses the power of Photoneo 3D vision, which can cover a large scanning area and provide high-quality 3D data even for challenging materials such as black tires.
Robomation Robot Technologies Inc. developed a solution for automated polishing / sandblasting of objects, using Photoneo 3D camera MotionCam-3D attached to the robotic arm. MotionCam-3D has been chosen for this application because it provides a number of unique benefits, including the ability to scan the object's surface in motion with utmost precision and efficiency.
RimDepal by AROTEC allows robots to fully automatically depalletize all common EWPS pallets with unprecedented performance and flexibility. The solution harnesses the power of Photoneo 3D vision, which can cover a large scanning area and provide high-quality 3D data even for shiny black materials.
In this application by Rossum Integration s.r.o., empty crates are scanned with the Photoneo PhoXi 3D Scanner to make sure they are not contaminated by candy products previously filled in the crates. After the contamination control, the crates are filled with a material and manipulated by a robot equipped with a special effector, which can grab 4 crates simultaneously.
The MAAS project team developed a unique, end-to-end solution for the assembly of airplane wing parts, which uses Photoneo 3D vision technology to handle challenges such as screw hole misalignment, panel to panel step height, and gaps out of specification.
