Accurate part localization for reliable robot handling

Your Benefits

  • PLR negates the need for precision racks or manual parts handling
  • Cost-effective, stand-alone device connected directly to the robot
  • The unique combination of 2D and 3D imaging techniques provides the reliability and flexibility needed for problem-free material handling operation
  • The functions for robot alignment and gripper position correction make it easy for the integrator to work with PLR
  • Web-server-based UI simplifies configuration and maintenance work
  • A device installed in production can be replaced in less than 15 minutes
  • Combining results from multiple devices allows even parts without defined features to be located


Accurate part localization for reliable robot handling

PLR is a sensor system designed for robotic handling of parts in carriers. It is a stand-alone device that comes complete with everything needed for easy setup, simple integration with the robot, and swift maintenance of the system in operation. The system is operated via an integrated web server and can be set up in no time at all. It combines 2D and 3D vision technology to provide a unique solution that can be used whenever reliable material handling is essential, even under varying conditions. PLR is factory-calibrated with preloaded software, meaning it is ready to use right out of the box. Installation and configuration of the device can be accomplished in only a matter of minutes. Now PLR is ready for operation.
