SICK delivers true plug-and-play 3D vision sensing
08 January 2016
The TriSpector 1000 from SICK delivers real-time 3D quality inspection in a self-contained unit that is both simple to install and use.
Developed by SICK in cooperation with customers worldwide, the TriSpector 1000 is expected to open up affordable 3D vision sensing for a wide range of processing and packaging operations.
It will provide FMCG product pick, placement & packaging operations, contract packers and warehouse operators with true ‘out-of-the-box’ 3D vision without the complexity or cost of conventional 3D vision solutions.
The TriSpector 1000 is an entirely self-contained unit that can be set up using SICK’s SOPAS software interface without the need to write bespoke programs. Yet it has all the functionality needed for quality control inspection under high-speed industrial conditions.
The unit is based on the principle of 3D laser triangulation where a vision camera is angled to capture a series of profiles as the object moves through the laser line projection. A shape profile of the object is built up.
Through SICK’s 4DPro communications platform, TriSpector can be integrated seamlessly with factory control and data systems, as well as combined with several other 2D or 3D vision devices to create a full inspection station for QC purposes.
The SICK TriSpector 1000 vision sensor range comprises three models, with width ranges of 200mm to 650mm, 100mm to 330mm and 45mm to 75mm, and different fields of view and resolution to match application requirements.
The units are supplied in rugged IP67 casings and shatter resistant plastic windows to withstand harsh or food processing environments. With laser scanning, additional lighting is unnecessary, a Micro SD card stores profiles and allows setting to be cloned for easy replacement or on other conveying lines.
The largest, TriSpector 1060, has a height range of 800mm, the mid-size TriSpector 1030 has a height range of 400mm, and the smallest, TriSpector 1008, has a height range of 60mm.
