Advanced Motion & Controls Ltd. is the place where Canadian businesses go for world-renowned robotic solutions, including pick-and-place equipment. To make these automated tasks easier, Pickit has developed a line of three-dimensional cameras and accompanying software that users can easily add to their robots for reliable bin picking.
By overcoming repetitive tasks, manufacturers can reduce manual labour costs by using Pickit cameras to automate picking and placing parts of different shapes, sizes, and material.
Robust and easy to run
Picket three-dimensional cameras are robust and easy to run in production, and they make assembly lines flexible while reducing cycle time and ensuring employee safety. Each has a plug-and-play system with built-in support and offers more than mere detection: users get full 3D orientation, accurately picking and placing, collision avoidance, and smart motion for emptying bins and boosting machine up-time.
With these cameras, Pickit aims to supply real out-of-the-box bin-picking solutions for common applications in the manufacturing world. Relevant industries for these products include forging, aerospace, moulding, metal processing, pharmaceuticals, and the automotive sector. The Pickit vision system is simple to set up with intuitive software that needs minimal integration support; the reduced installation times provide an enormous benefit.
These three-dimensional cameras are plug-and-play systems available at fixed prices. Each one serves as a set of eyes for the robot, guiding it to handle a broad variety of items in bins, boxes, and tables in different tasks. The camera and the software detect the 3D position, orientation, and dimensions. Three distinct models are available from Advanced Motion & Controls Ltd.:
- Pickit M-HD. Recommended for picking small and medium-sized objects with high accuracy.
- Pickit M. Suitable for picking medium-sized objects.
- Pickit L. Great for picking large-sized objects from pallets and bins. Fast return on investment.
