Vision system PLB - Sick

Sick’s PLB vision system is designed for precise localization of randomly orientated parts in bins and boxes. It enables the easy introduction of new parts into existing work cells and short part changeover time by using CAD-based 3D shape matching part localization software.
The PLB’s performance supports high production rates. The vision system consists of a 3D camera, part localization software and tools for easy integration and communication. The system’s advanced 3D camera ensures superior image quality and provides high immunity to ambient light. Field-proven tools and functions for calibration, communication with a robot and PLC, as well as checking for free gripping position, make it easier to integrate the system into production. The hardware and software are already integrated and pre-set for the application.
