Machine vision offers many benefits, but robotics is one of the biggest winners for many reasons. When combined with machine vision guidance systems, robots can perform repetitive tasks, and accommodate changing parameters and part positions better than more traditional guidance methods
Pick & Place
Vision guided robots play an important role in today’s manufacturing and assembly processes. They locate parts to be picked up during production, and determine specific locations to place them. Without robots, product and part production requires precisely “fixtured” line set-ups to ensure items maintain correct position and orientation. Relying on ﬁxtures can be expensive and time consuming to reconﬁgure when product, part types, and conﬁgurations are changed.
Poka Yoke Inspection
Poka Yoke is a mistake-proof inspection guidance process developed by Toyota that utilizes machine vision to improve production quality and efficiency while isolating product defects before they are passed along to the next step in a production operation.
