3D Vision Guided Robotic Assembly powered by HALCON

Kinemetrix (, based in Lexington, KY, specializes in advanced solutions for robotic automation. They recently built an automated clip assembly cell in which parts are fed onto a conveyor in arbitrary 3D orientation, then picked and rotated by an articulated robot so that a plastic clip can be inserted. The position and orientation of the parts are determined by using 3D point cloud data and HALCON’s surface-based 3D matching technology.
