Picking of complex objects used in the aerospace industry
The customer is a well-known European-based aerospace parts manufacturer with global operations.
The customer required a solution that allowed the company to build up a fully automated kitting line.
Challenge: Kitting a massive volume of parts
The huge amount of parts used in the customers kitting line and their irregular SKUs, some of which could be as tiny as 5mm, caused a daily massive labor effort. A better solution had to be found because arranging them with a flex feeder lacked the flexibility required. The customer decided to find a more advanced and flexible solution.
Solomon’s Bin Picking Solution
Solomon’s Bin Picking Solution – AccuPick 3D offered the customer a single software package that was able to recognize 50+ different parts in a working station. Using the power of its AI software, AccuPick 3D was able to recognize a 5mm sized washer, even when there were overlapping objects.
Being able to recognize pieces of such small size has always been a challenging task for the 3D vision solutions, but AccuPick 3D effectively solves it by relying on a single vision software that allows it to fulfill the needs of customers, helping them to lower operational costs and maximize profits.
