Automation is unimaginable without robots in many sectors of industry today: collaborative robot systems (cobots) in particular, which can work side by side with people, have become widely used over recent years. Vision sensors from SensoPart serve as the “eyes” of cobots. Our robotics expert VISOR® Robotic supplies the robot with all the necessary information on the position of parts. This data is converted into robot coordinates within the sensor before transmission so that the robot can accurately seize the part. Special functions, such as gripper space check and gripper point offset, offer further safety for the automation of handling tasks. Distance sensors can be used in addition if necessary: Our range extends from the sub-miniature sensor FT 10-RLA – the smallest optical distance sensor in the world – to the particularly versatile model FT 55-RLAM. This ensures that the robot can always accurately grasp parts despite variations in shape and position.
The VISOR® Robotic vision sensor was specially developed for the challenges in robotics applications. With its integrated, standardised interfaces, it can be easily incorporated in existing installations and robot systems from leading manufacturers.
Specially developed apps and function modules allow seamless communication between the vision sensor and robot, and considerably facilitate setup, operation and data exchange. This enables fast integration of the sensor in numerous applications.
