3D Locate




The co.'s 3D-Locate system delivers accurate, real-time, three-dimensional position information that enables automation equipment to work with a wider variety of parts, including items that are stacked or tilted, the co. says. The system uses multiple sets of two-dimensional features found by the geometric pattern matching tool, PatMax®, to determine an object's precise three-dimensional orientation. Using the location system can improve vision performance for challenging applications, such as logistics, robot-guided de-palletizing and precision assembly, and it can eliminate the need for expensive mechanical fixtures or measurement devices, the co. states.
