Focused on sorting randomly stacked parts stored in bins, the camera is mounted on robot arms to add flexibility when acquiring pictures and approaching the objects at different angles instead of from an overhead-only orientation.

Omron's 3D robot vision system can help users with a manual operation for sorting parts used in the assembly process, which can involve sorting mistakes or injuries due to heavy workload lifting and even difficulty in securing human resources for parts picking. The vision system can also be helpful in scenarios where an overhead mounted camera is not emptying the bins or not fitting the available installation space due to excessive mounting structure size.

3D Bin Picking Camera + Robot Solution

Camera is capable of precisely identify randomly stacked parts inside of a bin, pick and place them at a conveyor, parts magazine or tray.

  • 3D bin picking camera
  • 3D application software
  • Multi-axis robots
  • Repeatability of 0.2mm
  • +/- 2mm placement tolerance

Advanced image acquisition and measurement

Shorten measurement time by taking a single shot of the object with a multi-pattern structured light. It also contains a built-in 2D light for code reading and other inspections.

  • Active One Shot technology
  • Acquisition and measurement time as fast as 0.4s
  • Built-in 2D and 3D structured light

Stable 3D position detection of parts

Increase capability to fully empty the bin by taking pictures on different angles of parts in challenging positions. Having a compact, lightweight camera to move it on the robot arm instead of having it installed on a fixed location, adds flexibility to the vision system and improves parts detection.

  • Robot arm-mounted camera
  • Approach bin in different angles
  • Repeatability of 0.2mm
  • Lightest camera in the market (0.6Kg)
  • Smallest 3D camera in the market (110x97x53mm)

Small footprint picking system to install

Reduce cell size by installing the compact camera on the robot arm instead of a fixed location that could be extremely tall for longer FOVs. Also allows for cell flexibility by modifying only software for camera and robot instead of cell fixtures. Network segregation to separate machine network (quick data exchange) from factory level network (heavy loads of data), allowing for data organization and machine speed improvement

  • Short working distance of 200mm, FOV 400x300mm
  • Robot and camera software changes instead of physical cell modifications

Vendor partnership, seamless integration and easy implementation

Shorten design cycle and startup time.

  • Single vendor supporting the entire system (robot, vision, safety, I/Os, etc.)
  • 3D Application Software (Measurement and Recognition, Parts Grasping and Robot Control)
  • Template programming for both camera and robot control
  • Support Omron and third-party robots
