Handling asymmetrical objects fast and reliably is now possible thanks to the world’s fastest 3D bin picking solution, which was developed in a partnership between DENSO, EnShape (now part of Cognex), and Eyefeeder®. The solution consists of a cutting-edge 3D bin picking system, a flexible part feeder, and a small 6-axis robot. The identification, retrieval, and positioning of a part is possible within 1.4–1.5 seconds, equivalent to 40 cycles per minute (CPM).
DENSO Robotics Europe highlighted this year with the European premiere of new products: the new SCARA robot, the notably collaborative robot, and the Industry 4.0/IoT applications. DENSO additionally showed innovative solutions such as a new function called “safety motion” to make the work near robots safer as well as two ultra-fast 3D bin picking systems that enable the handling of unsorted bulk small parts.
