This solution for FAVI enables the automation of picking parts from bins using two KUKA robots navigated by 3D vision and robotic intelligence from Photoneo.
Researchers have developed a technique that enables a robot to learn a new pick-and-place task with only a handful of human demonstrations.
The Irish Manufacturing Research developed an advanced solution for automated picking of bread products, which deploys a UR 5 robot navigated by 3D vision and robotic intelligence SW from Photoneo.
Throughput is arguably one of the most important metrics in manufacturing as a higher throughput increases profit and can give a competitive advantage. Find out how one packaging company achieved a 25% increase in throughput compared to their previous system.
INGENERSUN, S.L. developed an advanced solution for automated unloading of tires, which was performed manually before. The solution consists of a FANUC robot, 3D vision and bin picking system from Photoneo, software from Bcnvision, and other components.
Small batch sizes and a competitive market characterize the cosmetic industry. To survive in this market, producers must strive for maximum efficiency, capitalising on flexible production methods. Top class engineering and the most modern drive + control methods play a major role in achieving this.
The automation of the production process of brake discs helped increase productivity and reduce the challenging nature of manually picking the brake discs from a bin.
Researchers want to make picking robots smarter using distributed AI methods. To do this, they are investigating how to use training data from multiple stations, from multiple plants, or even companies without requiring participants to hand over sensitive company data.
MIT alumnus-founded RightHand Robotics has developed picking robots that are more reliable and adaptable in warehouse environments.
The JAMK University of Applied Sciences uses Photoneo PhoXi 3D Scanner and Bin Picking Studio to test bin picking for external companies and their specific applications.
The customer decided to automate one of its car body production processes to increase the degree of automation and reduce production costs. They decided for Photoneo technology based on its high accuracy and resolution, fast scanning speed, and other qualities it offers.
The solution consists of a tailor-made application based on accurate localization and robot-camera calibration. PhoXi 3D Scanner scans the object from two different positions to increase the reliability of measurement and robustness of localization.
KUKA.PickControl: robot-based software for conveyor tracking with integrated image processing.
Picking of metallic objects belongs to one of the most commonly solved problems within the automation. This solution enables the automation of parts picking and their precise placing to a predefined location within the desired cycle time.
