Bin picking billets: http://www.fanucamerica.com/Products/...

The following video features the FANUC R-2000iB/165F robot as it uses 3D bin picking to transfer steel billets. The system features two bins, one empty and one full of 15-pound raw steel billets that need to be transferred to the empty bin. Typically, this type of picking process from one bin to another has been difficult for robots to perform. However through the use of FANUC's 3D Area Sensor, robotic bin picking has not only become a possibility, it is now an ideal solution for manufacturers who are seeking an easy and practical solution for robot vision.

The process starts as the 3D Area sensor takes a quick vision shot. This vision shot provides a detailed 3D map of the billets to the FANUC R-2000iB robot. The robot locates one of the parts and goes into the bin to pick it up. FANUC iRVision's Interference Avoidance feature prevents the robot and tooling from coming in contact with the bin walls.

The robot picks the part and uses FANUC iRVision 2D to detect the position and orientation of the billet on-the-fly, and places it on a fixture. This demonstrates the accuracy of on-the-fly vision. The robot picks the part from the fixture, and places it in the second storage bin. Once the first bin is emptied, the 3D Area Sensor moves to the second bin and the process repeats.

All of the hardware and software in this system is designed by FANUC, specifically for FANUC robots, allowing FANUC to provide our customers with a wide range of solutions to meet their production needs. To learn more please visit http://www.fanucamerica.com
