In today’s world of technology, facilities are automating various processes to enhance their efficiency and reliability. Machine tending is one process that has seen a radical change in technology adoption.

Vision-Guided Bin Picking of Crankshafts

Customer Demand

The crankshaft is a central part of the automobile engine. While crankshafts vary in shapes and sizes. Besides, crankshafts each are heavy, with weight ranging from dozens to hundreds of kilograms. Traditional machine tending of crankshafts is low efficient. And repetitive loading work often has a serious impact on the health of the operator. 

So the client expects robots to pick crankshafts piled in bins and place them on the conveyor belt. However, due to the complex structure of the crankshaft, reflective surface, and the heavy piling of incoming materials, traditional robotic automation solutions are not stable enough to meet the client's needs.
