The robot then uses that information to pick the part. This process allows for almost endless product variations, eliminating the need for part-designated in-feed systems and machines. Line TrackingLine Tracking uses a vision guidance camera to provide information to a robot about part type, shape, size, orientation and position while the parts pass by on a conveyor system. For example, a two-robot system simultaneously picks parts of various sizes and shapes while a conveyor indexes parts continuously. Part TrackingPart Tracking builds on conventional vision guidance to retain information about parts as they move through a machine. This information can be used to count part quantities, locate flagged suspect parts, and determine cycle time for part to part averages. Part specific machine systems become unnecessary when part tracking is built into the machine. Barcode ReadingBarcode reading uses vision cameras to read printed barcode labels or ink printed barcodes. Character RecognitionCharacter Recognition uses vision cameras to read etched, printed, imprinted, or other forms of part symbols for part recognition. Dimensional InspectionDimensional Inspection uses vision to verify part dimensions and determine part quality. It also provides a report on the inspection results. Part Presence ConfirmationPart Presence Recognition uses sensors and vision cameras to verify part presence in nesting or end of arm tools and to check that parts are the correct color.
