Use Cameras to Let Robots See

Robots have taken over a number of areas in industrial production. They are used for handling heavy components, for precise positioning and for highly repetitive movements. Along the way they offer an unwaveringly high level of quality and reliability. Machine vision systems have also long been used in robots to 'let the robots see.' Robot arms can only perform their high-precision gripping and positioning maneuvers once cameras and image processing tell them precisely where to move.

Basler cameras are extraordinarily well-suited to applications from the robotics industry. Among their features:
  • High image quality
  • High frame rates
  • Small, light design
  • Cable lengths up to 100 m
  • Shock resistance

Typical areas of use and suitable cameras

Pick and Place

The areas of use of cameras for picking and placement applications include warehouse control and positioning of parts and conveyor belts, the sorting of rejects and the preparation of wares for packing and palleting.
