MOTOMAN ROBOTICS INTRODUCES NEW 3D RECOGNITION VISION SOLUTION

MotoSight 3D CortexVision, simplifies the use of 3D vision in robotic guidance applications. This powerful vision solution functions very similar to the human visual process. It is ideal for machine loading, product sortation and welding applications.

MotoSight 3D CortexVision can learn a large number of objects and recognize any of the identified objects regardless of presentation within the visual field of the camera. Within a second, the vision process can identify the part in front of the camera and where it is located. Even complex parts can be identified and then placed accurately.


Minimal downtime is required to train new parts due to its simple point-and-click programming interface. New parts can be trained in seconds, while other systems take minutes or hours to train parts in 3D space. No calibration is required due to advanced algorithm and unique recognition of patterns programmed. Using a single 2D camera (GigE technology), MotoSight 3D CortexVision returns object position information in six degrees of freedom (X, Y, Z, roll, pitch and yaw) without the use of structured lighting. This is an evolutional change in which a single camera can be utilized to provide a 3D solution. Accuracy within +/- 0.5 mm can be achieved with additional inspections.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
