Pick-it chooses Zivid High Definition 3D camera for Pick-it M-HD solution
In the fast-growing and evolving robotics market, robot users cite flexibility as the number one reason they choose for 3D vision. Pick-it and Zivid, two leading players in robot vision hardware and software, join forces to accelerate the adoption of robotic 3D vision for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SME). The European based company Pick-it NV (Leuven, Belgium) has chosen Zivid AS (Oslo, Norway) and their market leading 3D color camera to offer co-bots and all major industrial robots brands a plug-and-play solution for pick-and-place applications. Pick-it is releasing the Pick-it M-HD (High Definition) solution consisting of the Zivid 3D camera, an advanced vision processing unit, and easy to use software tools. The M-HD solution enables robot operators to get started with 3D bin-picking quickly. By using HD 3D color vision that can handle all sorts of objects, whether it be tiny or shiny, the Pick-it software now detects parts that are 10x smaller with 30x increase in picking accuracy. “To see more robots in medium and small-sized factories, we need to give the robots the ability to recognize any possible object in their environment,” says Bert Willaert, CTO at Pick-it. “Similar to humans, the Pick-it system learns by looking at a target object once, and with the Zivid 3D camera, Pick-it enables robots to see like humans and guides robots to immediately pick up objects.” Thomas Embla Bonnerud, CEO of Zivid: “We’re very excited and proud to be the selected 3D camera partner for Pick-it. SMEs need flexible, robust, yet easy to use robot solutions to succeed in the growing process automation market. With the adoption of Zivid 3D vision, Pick-it M-HD now provides a unique, high definition turnkey solution.” Peter Soetens, CEO of Pick-it: “I am very proud that we can now combine the best 3D vision software with the best 3D camera on the market. Now we enable our customers to automate even more pick-and-place tasks, and we expect this partnership to contribute to our growth considerably.” During VISION 2018, visitors can see the demos live on the Zivid booths.
