Bin picking is certainly the most complex industrial operation to automate. Combined with a vision system and software, the robot must detect and move a part randomly positioned among others in a bin or on a conveyor.
They help meet the growing demand to produce faster with better quality and are in line with the industry 4.0 trend. They differ in the quality of the optics and sensors but also in the technology used for image acquisition.
Widely used on the market, 2D vision systems are starting to run out of steam and are now being overtaken by much more efficient 3D solutions.
