PLB Vision-Based Bin Picking System



SICK has introduced its PLB vision-based bin picking system, a complete, easy-to-use solution for precise localization of parts in bins and boxes, independent of part orientation.

Comprised of a 3-D camera and part localization software, the PLB system includes additional tools for easy integration with any robot, communication with a higher-level controller and verification of collision-free gripper positioning relative to the part. The PLB is optimized for reflective metal surfaces and features edge detection for recognition of flat parts.

The PLB system enables easy configuration of new applications and supports short pick-to-pick cycle times and high throughput. Both the software and hardware are designed to be used out of the box, so users can begin to use the system productively without additional programming.
