Vision-Guided Assembly of Washing Machine Counterweights

Customer Demand

Counterweights are key parts of drum washing machines, which give the body of a washing machine more inertia and reduce its jitter amplitude, helping keep the washing machine stable during operation. There is a great demand for counterweights handling from household electrical appliance manufacturers. Counterweights are various and heavy, and the traditional manual assembly is often characterized by assembly errors, low efficiency and high cost. 

So the client expects robots to pick tightly-piled dark counterweights of multiple sizes. However, counterweights are tightly piled in small space and mostly have dark surfaces, and traditional robotic automation solutions do not have the singularity detection feature, so dark counterweights cannot be well recognized and accurately picked.
