  • COGNEX vision system detects medicine containers on the conveyor
  • Using information from the pulse encoder mounted on the conveyor, the target container is tracked, picked up without stopping, and is neatly arranged and transported on a tray.
[System configuration]
  • iQ Platform compatible PLC + robot CPU x 2 units
  • COGNEX vision system
  • Pulse encoder
Improved takt time

The vision system measures the workpieces without stopping the conveyor. Takt time is further improved using the tracing function handled by the robot.

Space saving

The multi-CPU configuration consisting of a sequence CPU and robot CPU contributes to space saving.

Speedy startup

Incorporate vision system control commands in the robot controller for a faster system startup.
