ABB Robotics has introduced Integrated Vision, a smart camera system designed to make vision-guided robotics applications faster and easier to deploy. Using 2-D vision guidance, ABB Integrated Vision helps manufacturers track products more accurately, improve supply chain management, improve quality, troubleshoot challenging lines and processes and significantly expand their use of robotic automation. Taken together, the advantages of vision-guided robotics can significantly improve a company’s bottom line, saving time, money, and other valuable resources.
ABB Integrated Vision, powered by Cognex, features sophisticated imaging technologies such as the PatMax algorithm for advanced part location.
RobotStudio, ABB’s PC-based programming tool, provides the platform for creating vision tasks quickly. Operators can select features, set parameters and operate under real-world conditions from a library of common vision applications. The smart camera offers a wide range of built-in communication protocols that interface directly with the robot, helping complete programming and set-up in approximately 25 percent of the traditional time, according to ABB.
