EUCLID LABS 3D VISION SYSTEM APPLIED TO A ROBOT CELL OR AN AUTOMATIC MACHINE ALLOWS SCANNING EACH TIME WORKING PIECES BEFORE WELDING IN ORDER TO FIT THE WELDING GUN POSITION
Several applications of 3D vision are possible beyond bin picking.
First of all it is possible to check with a 3D sensor a part or a process for quality inspection:
- it could be incomplete (plastic injection process)
- there could be a missing part in a set (depalletizing or palletizing, assembly)
- there could be a piece out of position (welding)
Euclid Labs 3D vision system applied to a robot cell or an automatic machine allows scanning each time working pieces before welding in order to fit the welding gun position even when fixtures are not perfect.
It can be used joined with an offline programming system or as a robot software tool, in this case welding point corrections are relative to a master piece prepared in teach mode.
