3D CAMERAS

DESCRIPTION: 3D cameras function as the eye of the robot when bin-picking. As a rule, 2 or 4 cameras are used. Using a line or pattern projector, these generate 3D data from 2D images taken at various angles. Based on this 3D data, the exact coordinates of randomly-distributed parts located at different heights can be determined and transmitted to the robot.

2D CAMERAS

DESCRIPTION: A 2D camera captures a simple two-dimensional image. Via intelligent software, parts are precisely identified and located on a defined plane (e.g. conveyor or pallet) so that the robot can pick them up. 2D camera systems can also be used to identify and measure parts as well as to inspect them.

LINE SCANNER

DESCRIPTION: A laser is used to generate a laser line. This is projected onto the surface of a part and scanned by a camera. An image is generated of the course of the laser line projected onto the part. Parts can thus be accurately measured, e.g. to carry out quality checks or determine coordinates for a robot controller.

IMAGE ANALYSIS

DESCRIPTION: 2D and 3D image analysis based on intelligent software. Used to analyze aspects such as component defects, component coordinates, surface quality and geometry. Teach-in via unique component features. These can be selected on a 2D image or defined by comparing with 3D CAD data. Enables quality assurance and handling processes to be precisely automated.

DMC MARKING

DESCRIPTION: Application of DataMatrix Code and verification by camera.

INDUSTRY 4.0

DESCRIPTION: Cells are easily integrated into the manufacturing environment (sensor technology and PLC). Sensors communicate continuously (data exchange) in real-time. High process stability of the automation solution. Increases productivity and efficiency. Optimized use of resources, manufacture of small series and single pieces without high additional costs.

DIGITAL TWIN

DESCRIPTION: Digital tests can be carried out on single parts, component groups and the entire cell during any phase in the product development, enabling errors and weaknesses to be identified at an early stage. Speeds up the design process. Virtual programming possible. For simulating the commissioning procedure (COM) and optimally preparing the real COM. Virtual twin can be used to train operating and service staff without blocking the real system. When retrofitting existing systems, the configuration and COM can be simulated to minimize retrofitting times during production. Malfunctions can be simulated under real-time conditions without endangering the system.

VIRTUAL REALITY HEADSET

DESCRIPTION: Computer-generated visualization of automation processes in a new dimension. The cells can be walked through and experienced virtually and interactively in 3D in real time. Modifications can be made to systems early on in the design phase. Customers can take a virtual tour of the cell and make alteration requests at an early stage. Faster design and testing processes. Improved process reliability.

VIRTUAL COMMISSIONING (VCOM)

DESCRIPTION: Design data is imported and tested on a virtual machine with the aid of 3D simulation. Production changes can be tested before transferring programs to the real system. Errors are detected and eliminated in the early stages of development. Faster development and commissioning processes, improved process and product quality, lower production costs.
