PickMaster® Twin - Third generation packaging software for the digital factory of the future

PickMaster® Twin is the market leading robotic software for vision-guided random flow picking and packing applications. 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.

Key benefits

Digital twin enabled by PickMaster PowerPac

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.

Intuitive 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.

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).


 More benefits

  • Speed: Reduces commissioning and change-over times
  • Flexibility: Supports all ABB robots*, controlled by OmniCore or IRC5, linear and circular conveyor configurations
  • Simplified: Streamlines hardware/software setup and configuration
  • Cost: Reduces total integration costs
  • Unique: Digital twin technology enabling seamless simulation and emulation of virtual and real installations including visual tuning
  • Domain expertise: Simulates future production operations
  • Productivity: Operational efficiency, PackML enabled

*except IRB14000 and Dual-arm YuMi

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

  • 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 3 supports all ABB robots controlled by IRC5.
  • PickMaster® Picking PowerPac
    By adding the Picking PowerPac to PickMaster 3 and RobotStudio, both programming and conceptualization of picking systems is simplified.



PickMaster® Add-Ons

  • PickMaster®  External Sensor Solution
    PickMaster application software with Generic Sensor Protocol, adds 3D vision technology to the ABB packaging application.
