BENEFITS OF MACHINE VISION IN INDUSTRIAL ROBOTICS”
“I’ve failed over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”
One of the major benefits of machine vision being used in industrial robots is increased flexibility. One robot with vision can perform the tasks of several blind robots. Intelligent programming allows a robot to switch between tasks seamlessly with little to no downtime.
Blind robots need to be programmed continually to widen their skill sets and to improve their performance. Robots with vision technology, however, require less programming. They are able to recognise the objects, and have an ability to adjust to its environment, pick up, locate and/or work on a part in any orientation, therefore they don’t need a precision part placement system to perform their job productively.
Machine vision in robotics provides more accuracy, and hence improves efficiency and performance, while reducing costs. It is the future of industrial manufacturing.
