Comau introduced “MI.RA/PICKER”, an automated, perception-based random bin picking system. Adaptable to any brand of commercial robot, customized bin or customized gripper, the system uses two high-resolution laser sensors and a central 3D vision camera to autonomously recognize, locate and grasp randomly placed objects at a rate of up to 40 pieces per minute (PPM). The system also includes a virtual simulation tools and predictive algorithms for optimal path management and collision-free trajectories, the company says. Because products don’t need to be placed into bins in an orderly manner, the company says its MI.RA/Picker reduces upstream process times while ensuring a simplified logistic flow without singularization of the parts or rigid fixtures.
