Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) November 30, 2005
Braintech, Inc. (OTCBB: BRHI), a leading provider of vision guided robotic software solutions, announced today that it has received an additional order from ABB Canada for a major automotive tier supplier, to identify and locate brake and axle components in an assembly application using Braintech’s software, eVisionFactory, (eVFTM).
The application, as part of an ABB TrueView™ vision guided robot system, utilizes Braintech’s SC3D™ (Single Camera 3D) vision to identify, inspect and locate components in imprecise positions. SC3D first locates a brake assembly in non-precision dunnage and then is used again to accurately locate the axle’s position on a conveyor for assembly of the two components. In both cases, the required offset information is communicated to the ABB robot via eVF.
Owen Jones, Braintech’s CEO, commented, “We’re receiving more requests for material handling operations where vision is used both on the “pick” and “place” of the operation. The value is in the elimination of precision fixturing on both sides of the process. Through sales and marketing efforts, we expect to see a rising demand for these types of systems from both automotive and non-automotive manufacturers.”
