Automate 2017 - Kinema Systems Announces World's First Deep Learning 3D Vision System for Industrial Robots

A large part of the worlds commerce moves in boxes arranged on pallets. Depalletizing boxes in warehouses, distribution centers and factories is a difficult task that has become more challenging with changing demographics and an increase in product mix. Kinema Pick is the worlds first Deep Learning 3D Vision system for industrial robots. It addresses the depalletization of both mixed SKU and single SKU pallets.

MENLO PARK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--A large part of the worlds commerce moves in boxes arranged on pallets. Depalletizing boxes in warehouses, distribution centers and factories is a difficult task that has become more challenging with changing demographics and an increase in product mix. Kinema Pick is the worlds first Deep Learning 3D Vision system for industrial robots. It addresses the depalletization of both mixed SKU and single SKU pallets.


Kinema Pick integrates the KS1000, a high-resolution 3D/2D sensor with deep-learning and 3D Vision to find and locate boxes on complex pallets. Kinema Picks advanced motion planning brings self-driving abilities to industrial robots, making Kinema Pick easy to configure for any workcell layout. Kinema Pick is robot-agnostic and can be integrated with industrial robots from all the leading vendors. Kinema Pick can also be integrated with different types of vacuum grippers, bringing flexibility in the choice of hardware for varying sizes of pallets and types of boxes.

Kinema Pick achieves high pick rates for mixed SKU pallets, enabling customers to easily keep up with their upstream requirements and providing quick ROI. Easy configuration and setup through a browser-based GUI minimize integration and bring-up time.

Schmalz Technology Development - The Right Gripper for Every Task

In order to interact with their environment and perform the tasks, lightweight robots, like all industrial robots, depend on tools - and in many cases these are vacuum grippers. These form the interface to the workpiece and are therefore a decisive part of the overall system. With their help, the robots can pick up, move, position, process, sort, stack and deposit a wide variety of goods and components. Vacuum gripping systems allow particularly gentle handling of workpieces, a compact and space-saving system design and gripping from above. Precisely because the object does not have to be gripped, the vacuum suction cupenables gapless positioning next to each other.
