PickVision robots from ABB Robotics, in collaboration with SVIA Industrial Automation, actually see the parts they are handling, allowing them to easily adjust to a wide variety of parts, and handle smaller or larger volume of the same part because of the speed and agility afforded by the smart camera function.
Racks get bent and parts don’t always sit in the same place. This robot uses 2-D and 3-D camera to update its position for accurate picking of parts–-self-contained unit, no PC required, web-based interface can be set up and monitored from an HMI on the factory floor.
Avery Dennison spokesperson Robin Bell demonstrates Fasson® Wash-off labels, suitable for both glass and PET bottles, providing label converters with a replacement for wet-glue product. Suitable for body and/or neck labeling of light and dark containers, as well as bottled water in glass and large containers in recyclable PET bottles.
The Pilot Vision system from Agr International is an all-new vision-based inspection system that mounts inside the blowmolder to provide detection of random occurring defects during the production of PET bottles.
