Robust

“Pick and Place”

Solution


MVTec Software GmbH, Munich (Germany), and Convergent
Information Technologies GmbH, Haid (Austria), showcase a solution
for
off

the

shelf pick and place

applications

at VISION 2012
.

A
t the MVTec booth
,
Convergent IT and M
VTec present how H
ALCON
11 and AutomAPPPS
present

a
configurable system for robo
tic pick
and place applications
.

The system is based on

MVTec’s

s
tandard

software
for machine vision HALCON 11 a
nd
the

path planning
s
oftwar
e AutomAPPPS
by Convergent IT.


With

the new development environment for
AutomAPPPS
-
motion
, new
bin picking applications can be configured much faster. The user
has the choic
e between different robot manufacturers, grippers,
and gripping modes.

HALCON supports multiple 2D and 3D sensors
whic
h allow to identify and
to
grab a large range of
objects
.

T
his sol
ution dramatic
ally increases the
process stability
.

In
addition,
it reduces the cycle time considerably
.
These benefits
are given because
AutomAPPPS
-
motion also considers speed and
accelerat
ion
of

t
he robot axes
in comparison to conventional
motion planning.

Moreover, several gripping options are
simultaneously checked. Because of this, t
he gripping procedure is
optimized and the planned move
s are collision free for one or

multiple robots in
one working cell. Moreover, the check of
different redundant ways of gripping in parallel increases the
success of gripping

without increasing the cycle time.

HALCON 11’s
more than 1800 machine vision operators allow a fast accommodation
to different appli
cation

environments and the extraction of
information about
objects to
be
grip
ped

and
environmental
interferences.

This system
is al
ready

available on

the market.

A live demo at
VISION
2012 will showcase

an industrial robot that iden
tifies
objects in
arbit
rary
poses and

subsequently
picks and
places these
objects.
