At the beginning of such an application is the challenge of calibrating the camera system and the robot, so that the grips on the parts can be cleanly defined. Here Mikado Find offers a simple process, where the robot is moved to 3 defined positions above the supplied calibration pattern. The operator enters the TCP coordinates of the robot in the Mikado Find interface. Afterwards a short test position approach and finished is the calibration. Now all finds are transmitted in the desired robot coordinate system.
The teaching and finding of CAD parts in the Mikado Find GUI is also simple and can be done within minutes, so that the customer can set up his grip points and the program sequence on the likewise intuitive robot control from horstFX. The result is a cell for handling chaotically lying parts, which is ideal for autonomous loading of machines, for example.
Thanks again to our partners from Fruitcore Robotics and Staveb Automation, looking forward to the next projects.
