TM Robotics, in partnership with Toshiba Machine presents TSVision3D software. TSVision3D was developed and designed so anyone can understand and use it—a stark contrast to previous 3D vision technologies in the industry that required a high level of expertise and were difficult to use.
Carefully created as an optimised balance between processing speed and accuracy, companies in industries such as food preparation, pharmaceutical, and order fulfillment now have access to usability-oriented support software that enables system integrators to easily automate bulk picking. While human workers can look at a jumbled bin full of parts and immediately identify the best way to pick up items based on their shape and position, avoiding the edge of the bin as they reach inside, the complexities of automating these actions have been prohibitive until recently.
Now, with TSVision3D, the system incorporates two integrated, high-speed stereo cameras that are capable of 30 frames per second for continuous, real-time 3D images. The camera manages image capture, processing and parallax operations to identify items’ positions, and the vision software adds easy model registration without requiring complex CAD data. This new approach to 3D vision combines the latest vision system technologies and software to overcome stumbling blocks previously experienced with 2D vision systems. TSVision3D makes automated bin-picking a reality, even for smaller volume and highly variable applications.
In support of the TSVision3D launch, TM Robotics has also written a white paper on automating bin-picking as a cost-effective option. Click HERE to read more.
