3D MACHINE VISION FOR RANDOM BIN PICKING

3D random bin picking is a challenging area in manufacturing industries that has perplexed engineers for years.

To meet this challenge, Canon has aimed for and created a solution that utilizes Canon's leading optical and processing technologies. The installation is simple, yet the system is sophisticated. It automatically recognizes parts, determines the best pick candidate, and calculates the most optimal path so that the robot can safely, but surely, pick up the part and move it to its desired destination. It is a complete solution for random bin picking on any production floor.

SIMPLE FLOW OF AUTOMATION

Incorporating the Machine Vision system into your production line is easy. Setup is simple with the use of user-friendly software. Simply dump the parts into a bin and hit the start button. The system will search for the best pick candidate from the pile based on your application. Your robot, fully integrated with Canon's Machine Vision system, then automatically picks the part and places it, getting you ready for the next process with ease.

OPTIONAL SOFTWARE
Batch Recognition By Multi-Pallets Option
Using a single captured image, this option enables position and orientation recognition of work pieces piled in multiple pallets.

Consecutive Recognition Checking Option
This option enables consecutive recognition upon confirming that the pile state remains unchanged after each work piece has been picked.

Dictionary Creation Option
This option enables the creation of dictionaries, required for the recognition of new work pieces, on a PC other than the PC connected to the 3-D Machine Vision Head.
Partial Work Recognition Option
Using partial CAD data, this option enables recognition of parts even for large work pieces that extend beyond the measurement range.
Slider Option
This option enables measurements from multiple locations by moving a slider-equipped 3-D Machine Vision Head.

* The time is measured by using an eyebolt M30 for RV1100, an eyebolt M12 for RV500 and an eyebolt M8 for RV300 as a target work, and setting the default measurement modes and the default recognition parameters. (Measurement period may vary depending on target work, measurement modes and recognition parameters.)
