ABB vision system delivers greater reliability for vision guided application of robots at 25 percent of the traditional set up time.

* Seamless integration: Works with ABB RobotStudio to provide a platform for creating vision tasks

* Easy to program: Operators can select features, set parameters and operate under real world conditions

* Flexible technology: Offers greater processing power, high resolution, industry-leading vision tools, connectivity and operator interface

* Quick installation: Plug-and-produce integration between PC-based and controller-based software

ABB Integrated Vision is a powerful smart camera system that makes vision-guided robotics applications faster and easier to deploy. Using 2D vision guidance, manufacturers have the ability to: track products more accurately, improve supply chain management, improve quality, troubleshoot challenging lines and processes and expand their use of robotic automation. Taken together, the advantages of vision-guided robotics can significantly improve a company’s bottom line, saving time, money, and resources.

“Besides improving quality and flexibility, ABB Integrated Vision optimizes production quality, and maximizes inspection and control by giving robots the power to see,” said ABB Product Manager Klas Bengtsson. “Companies that effectively utilize vision-guided robotic systems can increase throughput and lower production costs, improve product quality and reduce rework and waste.”

ABB Integrated Vision, powered by Cognex®, features imaging technologies such as Cognex’s patented PatMax® algorithm for advanced part location, offering robust inspection, defect detection, guidance, alignment and measurement necessary to ensure manufactured products meet the highest standards.

ABB’s PC-based RobotStudio® programming tool provides the platform for creating vision tasks quickly and easily. Operators can select features, set parameters and operate under real world conditions from a library of common vision applications. The smart camera offers the widest range of built-in communication protocols that interface directly with the robot to get a robot up and running in the virtual world.

All ABB Robotics’ products are fully supported by the ABB Robotics’ global sales and service organization in 53 countries and over 100 locations.
