ABB to feature an IRB 1200 robot paired with the PickOne Perception system at MODEX 2016 in Atlanta

The innovative vision system is designed for singulation tasks often found in Third Party Logistics and Mail Order Fulfillment Companies

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (March 21, 2016) - ABB Robotics will feature an IRB 1200 robot paired with the PickOne Perception system at MODEX 2016, April 4th -7th at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. PickOne is an innovative vision system designed for singulation tasks often found in Third Party Logistics (3PLs) and Mail Order Fulfillment companies. ABB will share a booth (#957) with Baldor Electric, a member of the ABB Group.


The PickOne System is designed to provide pick point selection for singulation operations, utilizing a vision system to identify a single object from a bin, tray or pile of identical, similar or varied products, and feed the pick location to a robot. With the location identified an ABB IRB 1200 robot (700mm reach / 7kg payload) then picks and places the part on a conveyor for further processing. The system can work with any ABB robot, with the throughput performance determined by the payload and speed of the selected model. Additional PickOne systems can be used at the "place" location to verify the singulation process was successful.
Baldor will be featuring the new Baldor-Reliance® PS1200 Gearmotor platform, a precision-matched gearhead and motor offering optimized performance. Also on display will be DC motors and controls, servo motors and Super-E® NEMA Premium® efficient Baldor-Reliance products, and the new Baldor-Dodge Raptor coupling.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
