The VMT OSC 6D (Object Shape Capture) image processing system by VMT Vision Machine Technic Bildverarbeitungssysteme GmbH enables 3D position recognition of objects and assemblies for guiding manipulators or 6-axis robots. It no longer relies on optical features such as holes, corners and edges, but on 3D shape-based detection of objects and assemblies. As a result, the system can also detect components that do not have concise optical features. The system is scalable and can capture both very small and particularly large-volume components or assemblies. The system is set up and commissioned using only CAD data of the robot cell and the object.
Chromasens has introduced a 3D inspection system designed for detecting imperfections on the surface of metal cylinder heads requiring large field of views.
