Guide hole detection during vehicle body assembly

Guide hole detection during vehicle body assembly

Using machine vision equipment to control a robot's position when mounting heavy parts.

The Pattern Search and multiple-point edge detection features of the XG Series enables flexible searches and support for many different types of workpieces and surface conditions.


Previously, detecting the positions of many different workpieces was the most difficult part of guide hole detection during vehicle body assembly and prevented the process from being automated. Using machine vision equipment makes automation possible.
