Robot Guiding Vision System for Machine Tool Tending Applications
A vision system to guide ABB
industrial robots during materials
handling with outstanding
performance. Well-proven with high
speed, short teach-in times and
reliable production in a user
ABB offers a software that identifies the workpiece
location and orientation from the picking area and
guides the robot with precision in the robot cell. The
FlexLoader Vision can handle an unlimited number
of workpieces in various sizes and with complex geometries
without any need for mechanical fixtures,
reducing costs and complexity.
The control and communications with the robot are
firmly integrated into the software, which allows a
complete teach-in that is very simple and intuitive
from beginning to end.
The FlexLoader Vision is open to communicate with
a variety of camera sensors. It can be used for both
2D and semi-oriented 3D applications.
