TM Robotics, the firm responsible for the sales, marketing and support of Toshiba Machines industrial robots throughout Europe, will be demonstrating an innovative conveyor and vision tracking system at Motek this year. Based on two of the companys TH450 Scara Robots connected to a standard industrial vision system, it will demonstrate not only the function of tracking items as they move along a conveyor, but also the robots ability to determine the parts orientation and discriminate between different products. With the new conveyor tracking system it is possible to construct an inexpensive and high speed line using existing industrial vision sensors, linked via industry-standard Ethernet. The robots movements can be interpolated to the conveyors direction and speed; therefore products can be picked without ever needing to stop the conveyor.
