Unloading the work piece out of dunnage is a complex interaction between a vision system, software and robot. According to the part spectrum all process-relevant steps need to be synchronized to reach an optimum grip and positioning result.

Liebherr robot systems have a reliable and dynamic 3D object identification system based on powerful software which separates, identifies, and part selection. This robot system is also designed with a specially-developed gripper with additional axes for collision-free gripping and removal of the parts from dunnage.
