VISION News 04 2020 powered by inspect

 
 

Dear readers,

Today’s industrial robots require a pre-programmed motion plan. This is because without machine vision, parts must be exactly positioned in order for the robot to locate them in space. In many assembly applications, however, part tolerance stackups lead to levels of variation that make effective automated assembly with robots difficult to achieve. Read more about it here.

Also in the News: Dr.-Ing. Wolfgang Ullrich took over the management of Jos. Schneider Optische Werke GmbH. He succeeds Dr. Thomas Kessler, whose contract expired on December 31, 2019. Find out more about Wolfgang Ullrich here.

This month, the spotlight is on products from Autovimation, Chromasens and Active Silicon. They are definitely worth a look.

Best Regards,

Florian Niethammer
