Isra Vision launches ‘quad-camera sensor solution’ for bin picking

Isra Vision has launched what it says is a “quad-camera sensor solution” for bin picking.

Robot-guided bin picking is significantly increasing the level of automation in industrial production, while also enabling maximum flexibility.

That is why another large German supplier in the automotive sector has now chosen the PowerPick3D bin picking system.

Isra says the “totally new quad-camera sensor solution with top speeds in scanning and data processing takes fully automated bin picking to the next level of performance”.

It enables significantly higher throughput and faster cycle times than comparable solutions and other technologies.

Its parts detection is highly robust, thus ensuring maximum performance even under the most difficult conditions.

Today’s high demands on quality and cost in the automotive sector require absolute efficiency and a high level of automation.

Isra’s bin picking portfolio meets these demands perfectly. With multiple cameras, the ultra-high-performance sensors scan the content of the container and generate a dense point cloud.

This is then compared to the CAD template, enabling the systems to detect the parts to be picked and create an optimized picking order autonomously, resulting in an almost unlimited diversity of recognizable object geometries.

Intelligent picking planning and the precise supply of components in the production process ensure safe processes. Furthermore, the use of embedded PCs means that data is processed extremely quickly.

One of the world’s largest automotive suppliers relies on Power-PICK3D to sort components for the chassis.

Small, cylindrical metal pins – some reflective, some dark black – need to be picked individually by a robotic system in the production process.

The mechanical solution used previously exhibited high wear and insufficient throughput to meet the challenge of significantly increasing quantity.

PowerPick3D increased output and the sensor ensured the extremely short cycle time to be met, despite the reflective surfaces.
