Vision-guided technology speeds setup time

March 24, 2014

ABB Robotics has introduced Integrated Vision, a smart-camera system that helps simplify vision-guided robotics applications. Using 2-D vision guidance, the system features the patented PatMax® algorithm for advanced part location, offering inspection, defect detection, guidance, alignment, and measurement.

RobotStudio, the manufacturer’s PC-based programming tool, provides the platform for creating vision tasks. Operators can select features, set parameters, and operate under real-world conditions from a library of common vision applications. The smart camera’s communication protocols interface directly with the robot to help decrease programming and setup time by about 25 percent, the company states.
