At ProMatDX this week, Bastian Solutions is displaying its AI-powered robotic systems that allow robots to see, reason and act to unknown inputs and produce desired outputs. These systems use artificial intelligence and a vision system that can see various types of products within a homogeneous or heterogeneous mix.
The AI reasons and determines the optimal pick target for the robot. “With these systems, we’ve achieved rates up to 1,400 picks per hour with 99% accuracy,” said Bastian Solutions field application engineer Clay Britton. “Overall, these systems are extremely reliable and can meet or exceed the rates and accuracies delivered by humans.”
Configured into the AI, the robot’s end-of-arm tooling provides coordinates and angles for the robot to pick the product without colliding into external structures. Customized toward a customer’s products, Bastian Solutions’ end-of-arm tool designs factor in product dimension and shape, product weight, product material, interface with vision system, interface with robotic programming and securing the product during robotic movements.
