Roboception’s partner J. Schmalz GmbH has now launched its innovative 3D-R Vision & Handling Sets, a complete solution for the complex task of automated bin picking.
The set combines a vacuum gripping system specially optimized for bin picking with a Roboception’s rc_visard 3D stereo sensor and rc_reason software modules, and also includes suitable connection accessories for the robot. The intelligent control and smooth cooperation of all components is the decisive success factor.
The product is available in two variants, with either a static sensor or an end-of-arm installation, and can be optimized as a BoxPick or ItemPick solution.
The BoxPick module detects rectangular surfaces and calculates the gripping point based on predefined workpiece sizes. This module enables robots to pick ordered articles from a pallet or from a box.
The ItemPick module calculates the next gripping point for randomly shaped, unsorted workpieces within a load carrier. This module is used for bin picking.
This solution also features the brand-new CollisionCheck module, which avoids collisions between the gripper and the load carrier.
