The tasks and applications of machine vision are becoming increasingly complex in connection with the automation of production tools, so that conventional 2D image processing tools are no longer sufficient in many cases. For this reason, we have been involved in 3D image processing for many years and have already successfully realised many projects.
We are happy to use the advanced high-end 3D image processing components of our system partner Keyence Deutschland GmbH, but as a licensed solution partner of MATRIX VISION and Balluff we also have their intelligent cameras and embedded components in our portfolio. We offer you holistic support from the feasibility study through project planning to the final integration.
Typical applications in which a 3D process is used are the inspection of height information, the inspection of rivet seals, the quality control of solder joints or distance checks. Robots that precisely grip and place products and goods also use 3D technology.
The term bin picking is often used in connection with 3D image processing. This describes the automated removal of products from a container for feeding into machine tools or for placement in boxes and racks. These pick-and-place applications are realised exclusively with 3D sensors.
