PickMaster® Twin

Vision-guided random flow packaging software for the digital factory of the future

PickMaster Twin features digital twin technology, which increases productivity by dramatically shortening commissioning times from days to hours and changeover times from hours to minutes while maximizing overall line efficiency.

Digital twin enabled by PickMaster PowerPac
PickMaster® Twin is the market leading robotic software for vision-guided random flow picking and packing applications. When using digital twin technology, the simulated station can be directly connected to the running production, allowing simultaneous optimization of the picking process in the virtual world in real time while the real process acts accordingly.

PickMaster Operator offers state-of-the art user interface
ABB also condenses and enhances the advanced application experience with the introduction of the new PickMaster Operator presenting intuitive interfaces built on ABB’s Ability Zenon data management software, providing colorful dashboards for easy data visualization and production control. Its modern user interface gives operators and plant managers full insight and control of the production result. These easy-to-use user interfaces include a touch tile home screen, production screen, and digital production dashboard.

Maximizes output while increasing OEE
PickMaster complies with the OMAC PackML standard making PickMaster an integrated part of modern packaging machineries and factory planning and reporting systems. The latest version also enables visual online tuning of the robot operating area in both X and Y directions, helping maximize output and increasing overall equipment effectiveness (OEE).

Powerful system
The software features a powerful color vision system that can support up to 10 cameras for accurate position guidance and feature inspection. Circular conveyor tracking capability enables picking of random products from circulation tables. Designed to fit small single-robot cells as well as complex production lines with up to 10 robots.

  • PickMaster® 3 for high speed picking
    The PickMaster 3 includes advanced vision technique and tightly integrated conveyor tracking capability. The integrated vision system is advanced and open to communicate with any external sensor (line scanners, color vision, 3D etc.).
  • PickMaster® Picking PowerPac
    By adding the Picking PowerPac to PickMaster 3 and RobotStudio, both programming and conceptualization of picking systems is simplified.
