Now Available: Robotiq Camera Vision System for Universal Robots
|Not answered yet|
Hi DoF Pros,
As you might have seen, Robotiq released an easy-to-use camera for vision-guided pick and place on UR. We’re taking orders on the product now (contact [email protected]) and it will start shipping in mid-August. You can read the official press release here. You can find below some more technical information about it. The spec sheet is also attached. Don’t hesitate to ask your questions!
Here is the video if you didn't see it yet
UR wrist bolt pattern
Slim design, adds only 13.5 mm between the flange and the tool
Can use a single cable when used with Robotiq 2-Finger Grippers
70 mm to infinity focal length
Integrated high power lighting
Wizard like calibration and part teaching, no coding, no special vision parameters to set
Setup and runs on UR controller using interface on teach pendant
Today, the Robotiq Camera can:
Work on UR robots only
Locate parts (or features) that are singulated and not moving
Today, the Robotiq Camera cannot:
Do bin picking or pick parts piled on top of each other
Do quality control
Use color information to recognize parts
Stream the raw video data
How we’ll leverage DoF to deploy the Camera at customers sites
As anybody who has worked with vision-guided robotics before, you know that many factors can influence the robustness of a vision system. DoF will be ideal to communicate what works and what does not work with the Robotiq Camera in production.
At Robotiq, we will share all non-confidential tests with the camera and we encourage you to do the same. Putting videos, programs and notes will be great to build the common know-how.
You can also share pictures of parts to be picked and we will run our vision algorithm to do a first offline feasibility assessment.
