How your forge benefits from 3D vision automation
- Avoid high maintenance costs of feeders
- Use space better and reduce noise in the factory
- Flexibly adjust or change billet types without major interventions
- Reduce downtime with reliable and safe billet picking
- Introduce smaller production runs cost-effectively
Interested? What we can offer you:
- 3D vision automation solution, including specific billet picking software, innovative Gripper End of Arm Tool and lifecycle services.
- A solution that picks billets accurately from random bins, from the sides, the top, at steep angles or even those stuck in the corners.
- Easy to install, user-friendly, low-maintenance all-in-one solution that can be seamlessly integrated with your new or existing robot.
- A 3D vision platform that can also be leveraged for other automation scenarios including sheet metal picking, random bin picking of metal parts and many more.
To feed the furnace, Colin Milas installed a robot with Pickit vision depositing the billets from their bin onto the infeed conveyor. The robot delivers a billet every 15 seconds, which is well within the requirements of the 30 second oven cycle times.
