FABTECH 2013: Robotic Bin-Picking Sensor


A material handling robot equipped with the new iRVision 3D Area Sensor will demonstrate bin-picking prowess at Fabtech: A FANUC robot equipped with the new iRVision 3D Area Sensor locates and picks randomly located parts from a storage container. The 3D Area Sensor provides the 3D location of the part in the bin. Its Interference Avoidance feature prevents the robot and tooling from coming in contact with the bin walls. Once picked, the robot uses iRVision 2D to detect the orientation of the part on-the-fly, and places it on a conveyor in a consistent orientation.
