Bin picking has often been referred to as the “holy grail" of robotics, due to the technical challenge it poses, along with the high value it promises to manufacturers. You might be surprised to learn then that bin picking has been available for years; however, it's been very expensive, unreliable and generally a nightmare to program. So, that has meant that bin picking wasn't a realistic option for manufacturers – until now.
Introducing ActiNav, the bin picking solution from Universal Robots made with manufacturers in mind. It combines the world renowned ease-of-use of UR's e-Series robots with the latest in bin picking sensing and software to provide a complete package ready to run in days, not weeks or months.
3 KEY BENEFITS
The ActiNav Autonomous Motion Module (AMM) synchronously handles vision processing, collision-free motion planning, and autonomous real-time robot control. ActiNav Autonomous Motion enables:
- Higher machine uptime with collision-free motion
- Less refilling with deep bins
- Accurate part placement
Easy To Use
ActiNav does not require prior robot programming experience. ActiNav setup is intuitive using the Universal Robots teach pendant, teach by demonstration, and the six-step wizard-guided setup process. ActiNav Autonomous Bin Picking is easy to program with:
- Intuitive & prompt-based programming
- Easy system setup
- Easy training
Fast To Deploy
Unlike conventional alternatives which require lengthy and complex integration, and programming efforts, the intuitive flow-based setup allows in-house resources to do the work in just six steps.
- Scan to teach programming
- Free Spin Pick
- Milling Machines
- Plastics Processing
- Welding Stations
- Grinding Machines
- Inspection Stations
- Polishing Machines
- CNC Machines
- Test Stations
