3D Vision for Robots: Our Eyesberg Technology
More and more applications related to the automation of manufacturing tools can not be solved with conventional 2D vision solutions. Visio Nerf has successfully specialized in 3D vision technology for more than 10 years and offers its customers a range of innovative and patented solutions for maximum return on investment.
Systems goals for Robotic vision
Robots associated with a vision system are increasingly integrated into production plants to help move large and heavy parts produced in large quantities. Parts in the industry have increasingly complex shapes and production volumes, particularly in certain sectors of the industry, are relatively substantial. In addition the mass of each single part can make the handling tasks painful and even dangerous for the worker.
This is why Visio Nerf has developed simple tools to implement and provide high efficiency for the location and quality control of parts during production.
Thanks to our different acquisition technologies, we bring you robust solutions that take into account your needs but also the constraints related to the environment of your process such as variations in shades or color of the parts and / or variations in brightness inside the plant, as well as variations in the size and shape of raw parts
Beyond vision limits
These products, integrated into robotic process automation, are based on a brand new technology which compares, in real time, a 3D point cloud acquired by the vision sensor with the CAD model of the part. A small portion of the part, like the visible part of an iceberg, is enough for the software to identify, locate, measure a part in production.
The Eyesberg 3D vision now offers a level of performance and robustness unparalleled on the market to solve all your problems, whether robotic guidance or quality control. The manufactured parts can be located alone on a the conveyor belt, on a table or placed in a non-arranged way in a bin-picking container where only the three-dimensional vision can give a precise location information to a robot.
The programming of our system via the digital file of the part (Iges, Step) has been introduced in our program architecture to increase the flexibility of your installation and thus optimize your production costs..
Unique and patented solutions
They take into account a certain number of constraints such as:
- Variation of shade or color of the parts
- Variation of brightness inside the factory
- Variation of size and shape of the parts (finishing of foundry parts)
- Dirty or partially coated parts (parts coming out of molds)
- Absence of mechanical reference for the location
- Taking into account the deformation of the container in the case of a Bin Picking application
- The recovery or not of the located part
- Possibility to define a large number of points of handling by the robot
