A specialist in state-of-the-art 3D vision systems for advanced automation, Photoneo is in Hannover to exhibit its versatile and user-friendly product portfolio. Sure to steal the show is the MotionCam-3D camera, which its Bratislava-based developers hail as the world's highest resolution and most accurate area-based 3D camera for scanning in rapid motion. Indeed, it was exactly these outstanding properties that secured their brainchild the VISION Award 2018.
The MotionCam-3D is based on Photoneo’s patented Parallel Structured Light technology, which is implemented using a custom CMOS image sensor. Designed to inspect objects moving as fast as 40 meters per second, the camera is ideal for applications such as autonomous delivery systems, object sorting and even safety systems. The company's PhoXi 3D Scanner range, which is also being showcased in Hannover for the first time, captures large frames with high resolution and incredible speed, while efficiently suppressing background light. Another cutting-edge development on show is AnyPick - an end-to-end bin picking solution for e-commerce, warehouse management, logistics, the food industry and metallurgy. AI-based detection algorithms are said to enable this innovative robot to pick mixed objects of different shapes and sizes, without the need for CAD models or any other input.
Tomas Kovacovsky, Photoneo's CTO, is keen to demonstrate how his company can drive forward industry at HANNOVER MESSE 2019: "We are delighted to help tackle the industry's most demanding challenges with our solutions. Every day, we work to explore the boundaries of physics and make the most out of every single photon. The result of our efforts is our new 3D camera technology, which is opening up unprecedented opportunities in the field of 3D vision."
