FlexVision 3D

Integrated vision solution for ABB robots

This is the most capable integrated vision solution for ABB robots, FlexVision 3D systems react to changes within the industrial work environment.

Augments Robotic Manufacturing Processes
FlexVisionTM 3D vision guided robotic (VGR) systems see and react to
changes within the industrial work environment. FlexVisionTM 3D enables
ABB robots to precisely locate the grip points of a disoriented object within
a 3D space.

FlexVisionTM 3D Makes Robot Vision Simple
FlexVisionTM 3D systems include the vision hardware, the FlexVisionTM software platform and the ABB standard specifications in the areas of
robot dress, mechanical and electrical integration, and robot– vision programming modules.

The software platform includes unique technologies such for easy
calibration, with quick and reliable integration. FlexVisionTM leverages
world class vision technology as the most reliable and repeated VGR
software for ABB robots.

ABB FlexVisionTM is Low Maintenance and Reliable
From proven technology and years of continuous design innovations, FlexVisionTM 3D is the most capable and integrated vision solution for
ABB Robots.
Vision Guided Robotics Provides Savings
  • Manage variation in part styles and location
  • Eliminate costly precision fixturing, mechanical part crowding and dunnage
  • Automate operations that previously required human interaction
  • Increase up–time and eliminate robot crashes by seeing the part on racks
