An eye on everything – the vision sensor for robotics applications
Vision Systems Design 2020 Innovators Award
The vision sensor VISOR® Robotic was developed especially for the challenges in robotics applications. With its integrated and standardised interfaces, it can be easily integrated into existing plants and robot systems. Special apps and function blocks have been developed for seamless communication between vision sensor and robot. These enable rapid integration into many applications by considerably simplifying setup, operation and data exchange.
Expectations of today’s robotics solutions are steadily rising in the context of Industry 4.0, paired with a simultaneous desire for greater ease-of-use. And this is precisely where the VISOR® Robotic demonstrates its outstanding ability. Available in several versions, it offers the perfect solution for a variety of automation tasks. Designed with integrated and standardised interfaces, VISOR® Robotic can be easily incorporated in existing installations and systems, and thanks to different calibration methods and flexible data structures, it is also suited to a diverse range of procedures.
Scope of detectors according to the application:
Thanks to VISOR® Robotic, components that are fed in a universal tray or via a supply bin are reliably located and gripped. When loose components are supplied, the sensor not only checks their position but also inspects the free space around the gripper. The VISOR® determines both sets of information and sends them to the robot controller via one of the integrated standardised interfaces. The process is then managed based on the information received.
The benefits for you:
With robot-guided applications, such as the placing of screws, the VISOR® Robotic detects the position of components effortlessly; this allows the correction of any offset and increases the quality of production. Mechanical effort is reduced, and the production line is consequently more flexible. The VISOR® Robotic concept enables direct communication between the VISOR® and the robot, and an additional instance can subsequently be omitted for many applications.
Use of mobile robots must be safe and efficient. To achieve this, the size of the safety zone must be rigorously defined, and also extremely reduced to offer the worker maximum freedom of movement. The VISOR® Robotic allows mobile robots to move with precision to the workstation and e.g. to connect themselves there mechanically via a plug.
