Automated parts removal (bin-picking)

Sheet parts of different shapes and sizes are fed into the bending machine by a robot. The Ruler high-end 3D camera performs a high-precision scan to provide accurate position data for determining the topmost sheet part and its position in the tote. The labor-intensive process of presorting the parts is no longer required.
