Sick: Safety System
The Sick 3D Belt Pick SensorApp is specialized for locating products on a conveyor belt. With this software installed, the TriSpectorP1000 programmable 3D camera turns into a belt-picking sensor. 3D vision allows for reliable detection and gentle handling. For each detected product, the camera reports location, height and orientation to the robot controller. The Sick AppSpace eco system opens up new possibilities for a system integrator to develop solutions. In Sick AppStudio, the SensorApp script can be opened and customized, e.g. to combine robot guidance with inspection. Then, the camera can also deliver quality info on the products, making is possible to monitor the manufacturing and packaging processes and correct them if necessary.
