Liebherr robot system for bin picking

Unloading work pieces out of the transport bin is a complex interaction between a vision system, software and robot. Based on the parts matrix, we harmonise all steps of the process to each other, this guarantees an optimum picking and positioning result.

Process description

  • Requirement
    Randomly arranged parts need to be removed from the bin.
