From the hand of Cylod, one of the AQSENSE's Korean distributor, AQSENSE tools are going to be introduced at the Automation World 2014 show, that will take place in at COEX SEOUL, March 4 to 7 (booth #O120)
Take a system integrator like Beltech and a distributor like Phaer toghether with Photonfocus cameras, Z-Laser lasers, BitFlow framegrabbers and AQSENSE's 3D technologies. The result: a bin picking robot, from the company Robomotive, able to handle a large diversity of products in small numbers.
A robot with one pair of eyes, two arms and two hands, that effortlessly assembles a wheel at the same speed and with the same accuracy as a human would. This is the product that Robomotive is currently scoring very well with, whilst making its imprint on the future. A success story that system integrator Beltech and vision component supplier Phaer were only happy to co-write.
The robot of the future that can see
Michael Vermeer has already been bringing traditional, industrial robots to the market for many years. The General Manager of Robomotive says: "Until now, robots always carried out the same repetitive work, which is why we feel it is time to move one step forward and let robots handle a large diversity of products in small numbers. For this task, robots need eyes so that they can see what they are doing. This sight is made possible with 3D vision, an application that is becoming increasingly important in our sector, contributing to a more positive image of robots. No longer are they dirty, dumb and dangerous. They are now flexible, adaptive and intelligent. We involved system integrator Beltech for the vision hardware and software."
Product-specific grippers, jigs and feeders are expensive. To provide a good return on investment, the robot needed to use adaptive grippers and therefore be able to adapt to changes in the handled parts. With Robomotive solution, programs could be easily loaded depending on the product and task to be performed.

1Vision, AQSENSE's distributor in Israel, will be showing 3DExpress at the Israel Machine Vision Conference & Exhibition 2013 being held this 4th February in Tel Aviv
The Israel Machine Vision Conference & Exhibition 2013 (IMVC13) is one of the biggest industrial events in Israel. This year's issue will be held in David Intercontinental Tel Aviv during the 4th February and will host some of the most important companies of the sector such as National Instruments, Cognex, AMD or Imaging Diagnostics.
1Vision, the leading machine vision distributor, will be there showing AQSENSE's 3DExpress in the 2 lasers - 1 camera configuration which was presented in VISION 2012. Thanks to this 3DExpress functionality and the capability of some 3D cameras to work with 2 or more different regions of interest, 2 laser peaks can be detected separately and thus occlusions avoided.

The 3D Machine Vision Library (3D-MVL) for NI LabVIEW has been one of the products presented in the frame of "Academia e Investigación" (Academy and investigation) during the National Instruments Days 2013.
The National Instruments Days 2013, the major NI meeting in Spain, have been held this 14th March in Barcelona and 21th March in San Sebastian. The main actors of the National Instruments world have met in this event where the main novelties and innovations are presented.
The 3D-MVL library, developed by AQSENSE and ImagingLab, have been one of the attractions being presented in both cities.
INFAIMON, the Spanish Computer Vision distributor, have been in the Matelec International Trade Fair for the Electrical and Electronics Industry which has been held from 23 to 26 October in Madrid.
Video of the 360º demo
MATELEC is one of the biggest spanish industrial trade fairs which, this year, have widened its scope to embrace the industrial trends in energetic efficiency and sustainability.
The 360º demo presented is based in the National Instruments software LabVIEW and was developed thanks to the collaboration with ImagingLab. This machine generates a 360º model of food pieces moving along a conveyor belt and then volume is calculated allowing precise slicing.
