Machine Vision and Robots for Inspection.

Join Reliance’s Ronan Rasdale and David Moore
from Viska Systems on Thursday 25th June @ 11am
Register here!

Machine vision allows a robot to see what it’s doing. Without machine vision the robot would be blind – only capable of repeating the same exact task over and over until it’s reprogrammed.
Advances in Vision technology has made Robots much more capable than before. Whether to guide a robot arm to pick up or load a part, or indeed to gather vital information or perform quality checks or maintenance inspections.
– 2D or 3D or what about 2.5D?
– Static or Robot Mounted?
– Does it need external lighting?
– How does it interface with the Robot ?
All of these are questions which we will tackle in this quick 30-40 minute Webinar.
We will look in detail at Viska’s “Visable” solution – a robotic inspection solution that makes it easy to program robots with cameras to perform automated inspection with human level perception

Webinar: End of Arm Tooling

End of Arm Tooling (EOAT) is a critical piece for any robotic installation – It’s what provides a robot it’s functionality for a specific application or can even accommodate several processes.

Given EOAT has such an effect on the performance of a robotic system, this webinar addresses many types available and the critical considerations in deciding which will enable you to get the most out of your operation.
