Robots Can Do More with Vision
by Joy Meadows | August 23, 2013
There's a new generation of intelligent robots with highly advanced vision systems allowing them to perform tasks quickly and accurately! Robots can now operate with technologies that humans could only dream of, helping in ways that nobody could have ever imagined!
Why Vision Guided Robotics (VGR)?
Using VGR greatly improves a company's bottom line - saving time, money,
and resources. Companies that successfully apply VGR systems benefit from:
- Increased throughput
- Lower production costs
- Improved product quality
- Decreased re-work and waste
- Reduced labor costs
- Safer working conditions eliminating hazardous and repetitive tasks
What are some VGR applications?
The use of vision with robots continues to grow. New developments in robot technologies require new ways of working with vision systems. Integrators and end users continue new ways of using intelligent robotic systems in their applications such as random bin picking, visual line tracking (on a moving conveyor), machine tending, precise welding, and packaging & (de)palletizing.
How do you determine if VGR is right for you?
When considering an automated application for vision guidance, many of the considerations are the same as for any robotics application. Key items to assess are robustness, accuracy, speed, ease of use, and ease of setup. You may be surprised by the cost effective strategies that are available and easy to implement.
Interested in more information on VGR?
The International Conference for Vision Guided Robotics is the only conference exclusively on VGR. This conference is geared toward engineering & manufacturing personnel seeking effective ways to reduce cost, improve quality, and advance productivity; experienced robot and vision user seeking new applications; and prospective users trying to determine if VGR makes sense fortheir companies. Along with quality conference sessions, there will be tabletop exhibits featuring the latest products and demos from leading robot and vision companies. Space is limited, so register today!
