EyeScan 3D system with Industrial 3D-Eye sensor

Share this on social media:

EVT has expanded its EyeScan 3D system, adding the Industrial 3D-Eye sensor. The 3D sensor operates through a similar method to Microsoft’s Kinect sensor. It is equipped with powerful illumination and sensor and is housed in a robust waterproof aluminium metal case, making it ideal for industrial environments.

The Industrial 3D-Eye is suited to robotic applications, including palletising and depalletising, as well as sorting components on assembly lines. The expanded EyeVision system opens up new applications surrounding robot control with the combination of a depth sensor and a standard camera. Bin picking is also a classic application example.

The height and greyscale images are processed within the EyeVision 3D software, which can provide contour matching in the 3D space. The system also opens up new possibilities for quality checks, as objects can be inspected for correctness when picked up by the robot.

The communication with the robot controller occurs via a high-capacity library that contains instruction sets for many conventional robots including Kuka, ABB, Stäubli and others.
