The powerful EPSON integrated image processing systems are capable of reliably recognising and positioning parts, even with product deviations, exchanged parts or different lighting conditions.
Vision systems usually consist of intelligent cameras (a camera with built-in pc and software for image processing) that transfer coordinates to the robot where it should pick a product.
It is also possible to use a “simple” camera that transfers the images to an image processing unit (CV1 & CV2) or to a frame grabber that is placed in a PC which then runs the image processing software. This way the coordinates are forwarded to the robot. (Vision guide 7.0).
Thanks to the joint programming environment with the Epson RC+ development interface , no time is wasted when connecting robot and vision system. Through simple commands and the intuitive interface with graphic objects, tasks that require flexible automation are solved with simple parameterization.
- Communication between robot and image processing in milliseconds
- Development time is reduced thanks to the integration into the RC+ development environment
- Simple and convenient drag-and-drop programming without additional complex editors
- Parts are recognised even in changing light conditions thanks to tools such as blob analysis, geometric and polar search and many more.
