Courtesy: ABB RoboticsABB Robotics is collaborating with SVIA Industrial Automation of Sweden to bring SVIA's PickVision Smart Camera vision system to the industrial robotics market in North America. SVIA specializes in equipping industrial robots with vision enabled functionality for machine tool tending systems in manufacturing for such applications as CNC lathes, vertical machine centers, horizontal machine centers and grinders. PickVision is highly flexible and easy to use making it a viable technology for a wide range of robotic applications that can be enhanced by giving robots vision capability. There are over 600 PickVision installations in Europe, the vast majority with ABB industrial robots.

With PickVision robots see the parts they are handling, allowing them to easily adjust to a wide variety of parts. This increased flexibility makes the PickVision system ideal for operations that handle smaller volumes of the same part. The  smart camera function's speed and agility is also effective for operations that handle large volumes of the same part. The system is tightly integrated with ABB's powerful IRC 5 Controller providing "plug and play" simplicity that allows users to easily set-up and adapt the system to their specific applications. It can be programmed on a PC or tablet and features a Window 8 touch screen interface. The system includes remote service capabilities including a specially designed iPhone App.
