Robots & vision
Consumers are increasingly opting for customisation: preferring personalised products to standard ones. At the same time, they do not want to overpay either. Manufacturers must therefore produce flexibly at the cost of mass production (mass customisation). The use of robots can help in this process, as robots allow for more customer diversity and shorten delivery times. In addition, programming is becoming easier and easier, making the purchase of robots more accessible. Unsurprisingly, the demand for robots is rising rapidly.
Batenburg Techniek has a great deal of expertise in the field of robots. As a system integrator, we deliver customer-specific solutions and provide the necessary horizontal and vertical communication. We integrate robot controls with the other systems in the factory, such as vision and PLC systems. We also design and build the robotic gripper and provide all safety features.
In operation and in images
Cameras and associated software allow robots to perceive their surroundings. The application is often not only used to control the robots, but also to perform product inspections. Before we build a vision system or application, we begin with a feasibility study, and camera and lighting selection. Tailor-made to the situation. Then, for the realisation, we use advanced image processing software, including the Halcon Machine Vision library.
