Improved MotoSight 2D Vision Solution Makes Robot Guidance Easy

MotoSight 2D adds functionality to Yaskawa Motoman’s FS100 and DX100 robot controllers.

Dayton, OH - MotoSight 2D, a powerful 2D vision application, has recently been enhanced to feature a new pendant-based programming environment and no longer requires a PC. Powered by Cognex, this easy-to-integrate, comprehensive vision solution for Motoman robots includes an IP67-rated Yaskawa camera (MS100, MS200, MS300) and robot controller software. Through the pendant, users can view live camera images, train vision models and assign vision data results to robot variables quickly and easily. Users can also display and edit Improved MotoSight 2D Vision Solution Makes Robot Guidance Easy EasyView® tagged vision data, which allows customization of vision tools and results. With MotoSight 2D, you get powerful EasyBuilder® vision tools and robot macros that permit fast and easy programming of complex vision applications. Additionally, the calibration and initial setup of the vision system has been streamlined to make it even easier to get up and running quickly.


MotoSight 2D adds functionality to Yaskawa Motoman's FS100 and DX100 robot controllers. The FS100 and DX100 controllers use native communications to the vision camera so that it tightly integrates data directly into the robot programming language. Example programs are provided to reduce the setup and configuration time of the system. The robot and camera programs can then be used as a starting point to implement a specific vision solution.

MotoSight 2D is multi-lingual and supports eight languages. Optional Cognex In-Sight® Micro 1050, 1100 and 1400, and 5000- and 7000-series cameras are available.

MotoSight 2D integrates the most powerful vision products available, along with our industry-leading robot performance, to provide unmatched, vision-based application solutions.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air – Flexible and Intelligent

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
