Unfortunately, industrial production environments are not subject to any uniform industrial standards. Production systems thus need to be continuously adapted to the specific conditions. Image processing sensors face a number of demanding requirements. Incident ambient light, limited space, changing components and container types and short cycle times are just a few of the common challenges - challenges that ISRA VISION AG, based in Darmstadt, Germany, is keen to embrace. The IntelliPICK sensor range showcased at HANNOVER MESSE 2017 has been specially designed for the challenges on production lines and thus supports even fully automated bin picking.
The IntelliPICK3D generation of sensors premiered in Hannover - the successors to the tried-and-tested SHAPESCAN3D Robot Vision product range - offer various new functions in particular. They are also set to be expanded in the future with various sizes and embedded technology through the ongoing development of the Touch & Automate portfolio. For example, the Fast Collision Check enables positioning of a number of parts in sequence for pick-and-place operations. Thanks to the additional applications, the technological potential of the IntelliPICK sensor range is set to cover virtually all the processes along the production line in the future. In practical terms, this means that users don't just save time and money at the beginning and end of a production chain but also in gripping processes during production.
