Vision-Guided Robotics (VGR) technology has excelled in the number of tasks it is capable of performing. 3D machine vision technology combined with smart cameras can, with advanced pattern location, locate and select products based on their size, shape, and design. It can do this regardless of how the product or part is orientated on a conveyor belt or in a bin.
With these qualities, the vision-guided (VG) pick-and-place robotic arm is born. This can accomplish things like handling nested parts from trays or boxes, picking random parts or products out of a bin, or unloading and loading a conveyor belt.
One of the common uses for a vision-guided robotic arm is in the Food and Beverage industry, particularly in picking up individually packaged food or drink item and place it in its secondary packaging.
Let’s say the product is an individually wrapped frozen pizza. The pizza comes in different assortments, such as pepperoni, supreme, or just cheese. The goal is to pluck these pizzas off of a conveyor belt, moving at a pace of 30 inches per second, and place the appropriate variety of pizza in its designated packaging.
This can be done by VG pick-and-place robotic arms. Not only is the pace of the conveyor belt challenging for humans but the robotic arms do not have to stop for breaks or shift changes.
The other benefit is that because these are frozen pizzas, this operation may have to be done in uncomfortable, low temperatures for humans to work in for long periods. With the VG pick-and-place robotic arm, this is no problem.
The food and beverage industry is just one of many industries these VGRs can enhance productivity by leaps and bounds. Any industry that requires placement, assembly, verification, and packaging can exponentially increase the accuracy and efficiency of any of these processes with the use of VGR technology.
