Robot Station With Artifial Vision System
The robot station is an innovative training equipment in the field of robotics with artificial vision systems.
The station simulates a robotic workcell consisting of:
- 6-axis industrial robot equipped with a electrical or pneumatic gripper
- Artificial vision systemà
- Conveyor belt
- Rotating table simulating a warehouse
- 5 pieces with different geometric shape
- Piece stack holder
- Control and interface units
A typical working cycle consist of the following steps:
- The pieces are introduced by the operator inside the station from the entrance chute and are transported by the conveyor belt under the viewing area.
- The pieces are identified by a vision sensor which communicates to the robot their picking X-Y coordinates and the corresponding rotation angle.
- According to the data received, the robot picks the piece up and deposits it on the simulated warehouse as programmed.
- In addition, the user can operate the robot station manually (in real time using the teaching box) or in automatic mode (running a preloaded or customized program).
- The station includes some preloaded programs to operate in different modes such as storing from/to the rotary table, building a stack of pieces or identifying a piece using the artificial vision system.
