Integrated vision system for robots

11 May 2014

Robots are increasingly finding applications in the food sector – for pick-and-place product handling applications as well as their more well used application, helping to increase end of line productivity by speeding up packaging and palletising capabilities.

Adding ‘sight’ to a robot can expand its potential in all of these areas. Fanuc offers iRVision, an integrated vision option for its robots – featuring both software and hardware components. Coming as an optional software module of the R-30iB controller, iRVision is suitable for use in food processing and packaging applications.

Within the iRVision package are iRVision 2D,iRVision 2.5D,  iRVision 3D, iRVision 3DL (laser) and iRVision 3D area sensor – together with a range of associated hardware components. Cameras can be high-resolution, low-resolution or colour, depending on the application requirements.

Because iRVision is an integrated part of the controller, no third-party software is needed to run or programme the vision system which means there will be no additional integration costs, which would be required to enable a third-party vision system to communicate with the robot. 

iRVision is set up via the iPendant Touch, a handheld pendant that acts as the interface between the operator and the controller.
