Robotic systems are becoming more popular and widespread in many industrial manufacturing settings, so the need for reliable operation with the least possible amount of downtime is a common, expected demand. Significant advantages can be realized when these robots are coupled with vision systems.
Most current vision systems require extensive support from trained experts and are less reliable due to their complexity. Comau made a fundamental step change to simplify the programming and mechanical complexity of robotic guidance applications.
As Comau learned through extensive installations, an innovative vision scheme is only half the battle. Mechanical reliability also plays a big role.
