The PPMA Show returns to the Birmingham NEC Arena from the 29th of September to the 1st of October 2015. Among the companies exhibiting at the PPMA Show 2015 are Scorpion Vision, who will be demonstrating their innovative 3D Stinger Camera.
Using technology developed by Tordivel AS of Oslo, Scorpion Vision’s 3D Stinger Camera enables production-line robots to see with almost human-like vision; as they can distinguish the exact height, depth and sizes of products on a manufacturing line, sending information to the robot to adjust where the picking arm goes accordingly.
Unlike other 3D vision systems on the market, the 3D Stinger Camera also uses ground-breaking technology to process images in ‘real time’ as the camera is not required to scan whole areas at a time to detect products moving along the production line. This means that the total cycle time is only dictated by how fast the robot can pick.
Thanks to the innovative system’s real-time capabilities, the camera is also able to instantly detect if something moves into the field of view and send new picking co-ordinates to the robot, avoiding any unexpected malfunctions due to foreign items in the robots path.
At The PPMA Show, Scorpion Vision will be giving visitors the chance to see this innovative camera at work; with live demonstrations of the camera conducting real-time measurements of food products.
Paul Wilson of Scorpion Vision says: “We would like to invite visitors at The PPMA Show to stop by our stand and take the opportunity to see our truly innovative camera at work. With our live demonstrations we hope that visitors will be able to see how our cameras can be effective in the real world. The real-time capabilities of the 3D Stinger are what makes this camera stand out from its competitors and our demonstration aims to make this clear.
“Scorpion Vision’s 3D Stinger Camera is ideal for use in all production lines; the camera has been used to pick and package sausages of different sizes for a client within the food industry but has also been used to sort shards of metal for a heavy industry client. Truly versatile, if you have a production line which needs to accurately pick and process items of different sizes, the 3D Stinger is for you.”
Scorpion Vision will be exhibiting at stand G34 at The PPMA Show demonstrating their 3D Stinger Camera along with a selection of their other products. For more information visit www.scorpionvision.co.uk.
