Vision Guided Robotics: Set Up Machine Vision for Robot Position Offsets Webinar
March 11, 2021
11:30 am – 12:30 pm
Presented by IMEC, in partnership with FPE Automation
Most robot applications include some form of pick and place where part presentation is just as important as the robot programming itself. There are many well proven feeding methods that pair well with robots, each with their own advantages for various situations, but flexibility is becoming increasingly necessary.
Instead of using fixtures or pegboards to register part locations in a fixed array, Vision Guided Robotics, or “VGR,” adds a level of dynamic response to your part presentation. Parts placed in random locations on a single flat plane are located by a camera, and the live positions are sent to the robot which can locate the part in real time.
In this highly practical webinar, IMEC and FPE Automation will discuss the newest technology related to 2D VGR including a live programing example of a pick and place application using a Universal Robots collaborative robot and 2D vision offsets.
This event is sponsored by the National Institute of Standards and Technology Manufacturing Extension Partnership, Purdue MEP, The Center for Industrial Research and Service at Iowa State University (CIRAS), and the Illinois Manufacturing Excellence Center (IMEC).
