This video shows a Universal Robotics and Doerfer Companies demonstration of their adaptive vision guidance solution for pharmaceuticals and medical devices, eliminating the need for vibratory, centrifugal or tray feeders. It locates pharmaceutical bottles randomly placed in a bin, guides a Motoman 6-axis robot to pick up these bottles pneumatically, reorients them, and places them with lids facing up into an assembly platform.
