The challenge was to provide accurate object recognition across a large scanning volume. Using an XL model of the PhoXi 3D Scanner meant they were able to take full advantage of these important functions:
- CAD-based object recognition
- Robot-camera calibration for a fully synchronised setup
- Robot communication interface allowing easy configuration
- Path planning and dynamic collision avoidance across 5 – 6 second long cycles
Once set up, this fully automated process has led to greater efficiency, a reduction in operating costs and overall increase in productivity as compared to performing the task manually. Solutions such as this allow your work force to focus on more technical tasks.
