Highly Reflective and Complex-Shaped Picking
The IMR have recently been hosting a series of webinars covering many areas of manufacturing and industry. Multipix have been proud partners of the IMR for the past 4 years and have had the pleasure of supporting the team on some of their highly complex applications.
The highly impressive work from Anum and the robotics team show how powerful MVTec’s HALCON image processing software is, and how picking objects with highly reflective surfaces is possible with a 3D approach.
