Armin Robotics, a company specializing in automating machine workshops, has partnered with Visionerf to incorporate 3D vision cameras into its robotic solutions. The use of these cameras is aimed at solving the challenge of bin picking and streamlining the provisioning of loose parts for machining.
With the integration of 3D vision cameras, Armin Robotics’ robots are able to scan parts on pallets or in bins, construct a 3D image of the container, locate the parts, and validate their pickability with safety and reliability. This technology eliminates the need for manual intervention, allowing for random arrangement of parts on various surfaces.
CEO Thomas Janquart highlights the benefits of this technology, stating that it is increasingly employed for applications requiring process stability. Operators no longer need to position parts precisely or develop complex positioning tools, resulting in substantial time savings. This is particularly advantageous for continuously operating robotic cells.
To ensure a user-friendly experience, all models of Visionerf cameras are plug-and-play with Armin Robotics’ universal software. The software controls robotic cells and includes advanced features such as collision management. Vision programming complexity is transparent to the user, and the software can manage all applications in the machine workshop, regardless of the robot or machine tool brand.
Armin Robotics’ software also incorporates the management of various production types, enabling control over multiple components such as gripper changers, pneumatic and electric grippers, and 2D and 3D vision. The goal of the partnership with Visionerf is to further integrate these technologies, creating new possibilities for automation and operational efficiency.
The innovative solution resulting from this collaboration is set to be announced in the coming months, promising to revolutionize the integration of 3D vision cameras in robotic solutions.
