Eagle-Eyed Computers: Machine Vision and Optical Components

Currently, industry news is utterly humming with stimulating updates on machine vision developments from across the globe.

How an Autonomous Machine Vision System Increased Accuracy and Cut Waste

QA is a crucial step in every manufacturing process, regardless of industry size or sector. However, manual QA is not fit for the strict standards of Industry 4.0, since human inspectors may miss defects, especially when inspecting highly complex electrical items.

Achieving End-to-end Automation With Autonomous Machine Vision

The popularity of machine vision for quality assurance (QA) is increasing, but conventional systems lack the flexibility that most manufacturers need.

Intelligent Robotics for Laundries Closes Automation Gap

With a system that uses both 2D and 3D cameras from IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbH, the young entrepreneurs are automating one of the last remaining manual steps in large-scale industrial laundries, the unfolding process.

Time of Flight Forges Ahead: Design Tips to Boost 3D Performance and Cut Integration Time & Cost

Our newest hands-on guidebook describes how you can optimize the benefits of Time of Flight by considering various factors such as the environment of the application and the target object properties in the scene.

Learn How To Protect Your Business with AI for Visual Inspection - Pleora Webinar Live April 6, 2022

This webinar will discuss how two manufacturers - a distillery and an electronics assembly operation - are using camera-based visual inspection to protect their brand and make manual processes repeatable, consistent, and traceable.

Picked Up and Put Off

Pallets loaded with industrial yarn spools are picked up from the floor of a predefined storage place and transported to the creel location. There, the gripper positions itself vertically above the pallet.

What Are the Benefits of Robotic Vision Systems?

In practice, the technology allows robots to interpret and respond to visual information relevant to their surroundings in near-real-time. The technology is essential for various modern manufacturing and warehousing automation applications.

Robot Solution for Automating the Lettuce Harvest

The lettuce's outer, or 'wrapper', leaves will be mechanically removed to expose the stem. Machine vision and artificial intelligence are then used to identify a precise cut point on the stem to neatly separate the head of lettuce.

From Good Wood - Fully Automatic Wood Parts Inspection

"The German Brush Company" has implemented an image processing system from the Bavarian system house Simon IBV GmbH that uses robust IDS industrial cameras and SIMAVIS® H image processing software to detect even barely perceptible tolerance deviations particularly reliably.

Robot-assisted System with Ensenso 3D Camera For Safe Handling of Nuclear Waste

Anyone who has ever tried out a fairground grab machine can confirm it: Manual control of grab arms is anything but trivial. As harmless as it is to fail when trying to grab a stuffed bunny, failed attempts can be as dramatic when handling radioactive waste.

Robots on Their Own - Fully Automatic Picking of Unknown Products From Bulk Material

The goal: fully automated small parts picking. The main driver here is the labor shortage, the big challenge not a technical component like the robot or the gripper, but the design of an overall economic process.

3D Vision System Nets the Right Tuna

Matrox AltiZ high-fidelity 3D profile sensor powers TUNASCAN vision system, sorting up to 20 tons of tuna per hour with accuracy rates approaching 100%

Machine Vision of Tomorrow: How 3D Scanning in Motion Revolutionizes Automation

Advancements in machine vision drive industrial automation and push the boundaries of what is feasible. Yet one limitation of machine vision could long not be overcome, which seriously restrained the range of tasks that could be automated. This changes now.

Evolution in the Press Shop - Intelligent, Camera-based Tool Protection in Stamping and Forming Technology

Boosting efficiency through digitalization - almost no branch of industry can evade it. Also operators of press shops are increasingly networking their production. But - it's not always necessary to replace the entire plant in order to stay up to date.

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

The industry's first comprehensive Robot Integrator Program saves robot integrators significant time and cost investments by allowing them to mark each cell compliant with ANSI/RIA R15.06 with the TUV Rheinland Mark. As opposed to a traditional certification or an on-site field labeling, TÜV Rheinland's Robot Integrator Program certifies the knowledge and skill-set of robot integrators in addition to testing robotic cells and processes against ANSI/RIA R15.06. This reduces the need for frequent onsite or off site testing and allows manufacturers to apply a single TÜV Rheinland label to multiple cells. The Robot Integrator Program individually assesses a robot integrator's understanding of the ANSI/RIA R15.06 standard along with the ability to consistently produce compliant robot cells. Following the requirements and procedures of the new program will enable robot integrators to produce individually compliant robotic cells under one serialized TÜV Rheinland Mark, which meets the national electric code and allows acceptance by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) and end users.
