Industrial vision systems and integration of robotics

ICM integrates in its industrial solutions all market-leading robotics and industrial vision systems. The perfect knowledge of the various technologies developed by the different manufacturers and their compatibility are crucial elements of efficiency and reliability of the machine.

 

Machine vision systems (industrial vision)

The integration of one or more machine vision systems allows to set up automatic controls of the feeding and the production of parts, ensuring the accuracy, repeatability and traceability of  the control.

The vision software analyzes the captures images, makes a decision on the action to be performed (e.g. ejecting a non-compliant part etc.) and transmits this information to the other workstations.

By detecting possible misalignments or defects of parts at an early stage of the assembly process, the machine vision optimizes the production equipment's profitability. Finally, vision systems are also commonly used for the quality control of the final product.

ICM features a complete laboratory for vision systems for performing in-house feasibility and capability controls and thereby define the vision systems who suite perfectly your requirements (black and white, color, low or high resolution, matrix or linear). Thanks to the ICM vision experts and our laboratory equipment, ICM ensures you the reliabilty of the installed solution.

For example, we can set up systems for the following controls (non-exhaustive):

- control of compliance: size, presence, ...

- sorting of parts

- recognition of marking or color

- search for moving parts for a tracking robot

 

Our engineers and technicians mainly integrate Cognex and Keyence equipment, but depending on your specifications, we cann install any other vision manufacturer.

  

Industrial robotics

ICM is your ideal partner for your robot integration project. Thanks to the dual competence of our mechanical and automation engineering department, equipped with 3D design tools, robots and digital controls, we offer turnkey robotics solution.

Our offer includes programming, installation of the robot, but also the design of its grippers (pneumatic gripper, vacuum tip, ...), vision systems and the installation of different types of sensors (presence detection, force sensor, ...).

The integration of one or more robots offers you competitive advantages such as increased productivity, improved quality of the final product thanks to the reliability and repeatability of the movement, but also the simplification of difficult tasks for your operators.

The possibilities of industrial robotics go from the programming of simple linear movements to the implementation of multi-axis manipulation up to the integration of complex robotic technology. Whether scara, cartesian or 6-axis robots, we can program and integrate all types and brands of robots (Stäubli, Epson, Fanuc, Kuka, Universal Robot, ...) in our special-purpose machines, according to your specifications.

The fields of application are, for example:

- loading and unloading

- assembly

- presentation of parts for verification / control

- pick and place with tracking system

- packaging at the end of the line (blistering, thermoformed tray, ...)

 

Just like our special machines, our robotics solutions can serve all our main activity fields: pharmaceutics and medical, cosmetics and perfumery as well as electromechanics and connectivity.
