Bin picking with automatic collision prevention
Pick-it and ABB robots work together in perfect harmony.
A mixed bin with steel billets is emptied using a magnetic gripper with a passive rotation joint.
This makes it possible to grasp billets with an inclination up to 35 degrees without the need to alter the z-axis.
A fixed z-axis makes it possible to implement a reliable and simple bin collision prevention strategy without the need for complex path planning and motion planning tools.
On top of that, the Pick-it 3D vision software makes it possible to choose an inwards z-axis slope to enable picking parts that are at the side or in the corners.
