Conveyor Using Machine Vision to Locate & Move Objects

POSTED 09/03/2017

Check out our KINGSTAR demo of a conveyor transporting a part. A machine vision camera picks up its location, the electro-magnet moves the location to pick it up, the KINGSTAR Soft Motion software moves the part to the drop off location at the top of a slide that then deposits the part back to the conveyor. Pretty cool stuff!
