3D Vision-Guided Machine Tending of Brake Discs

Customer Demand

When it comes to handling brake discs, one of the trickiest hurdles is dealing with the close-packed arrangement of these circular components. They often overlap so tightly that it becomes quite a challenge to distinguish one from the other and obtain accurate recognition. Another challenge lies in the design of corrugated steel pallet crates on-site. As brake discs are retrieved from these crates, the crate's wavy walls can lead to discs becoming stuck during removal. This, in turn, exacerbates the challenge of achieving precise 3D matching, impacting the overall efficiency of the process. The customer requires the Mech-Mind 3D vision system to guide the robot to accurately pick up brake discs and stably place them on different conveyor lines based on their orientation (front or back).
