I am considering the pick-it 3d vision system to perform random bin picking for a machine loading application. What I have seen of the system is very impressive, but thus far much of the video and info I have found is from Pick-it website, etc. Any feedback using this system?

    @mertzga I had the opportunity to play around with it some at Automate last summer, I was very impressed with the system for the cost point.  It has some limitations but I can't for the life of me remember exactly what they were but its something that we are keeping in our hip pocket if we ever have a situation that warrants it.

    We will be purchasing two systems after the first of the year.  I will update with feedback once we get ours.

    Curious how this system is working out @thossler. Any information you can share?

    Dose anyone have any information on the Pick-it 3d vision system? i am currently looking for a solution for large amounts of flat parts in a random bin.

    I've been using the Pickit system rather extensively for the past year or so. What questions might you still have?

    @shupea what is your overall experience with the system, do you recommend it?  What limitations have you found using it?  Did you look at any other systems before deciding on this one?  We have briefly looked at the Cognex system but not enough to have any opinions about it.  We've had several customers have interest in 3D picking but so far the cost has had them decide to just use part magazines and load them with water spiders.

    Any insight would be helpful.

    I've primarily demonstrated the units to customers or for shows, many of which have converted to a purchase. The cameras are fairly standard, and do what they need to do depending on the application. Where Pickit really takes off is with the software and ease of use. What UR is to the industrial robot industry, Pickit is to the vision industry. The capability for it to be used and programmed so easily by the end user is what really puts this system over others. The software is web-browser based and is inherently designed to walk you through the process of building a profile for part detection. The price point of Pickit is comparable to other 3D vision systems, but additional costs with other systems come in when you need to bring someone in to program it, whether internally or from the OEM. Pickit provides a plethora of information on their support page to get started and use the system. If that's not enough, you can email them and expect a response within a day. Overall, the hardware is well developed and pretty standard, but the software and support is great. With many parts, you can expect to have the system programmed and be picking parts within a few hours.
