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 friendly way.
High accuracy with complex geometries
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.
Advanced yet easy to use
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. With one of the easiest-to-use operator interfaces on the market, the teaching of a new workpiece is possible in less than 10 minutes.
2D and 3D vision capabilities
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. The system reverts complex 3D images to well-known 2D images in order to increase the usability for the operator. No CAD-files are required to teach-in new components.
