ClickSmart Family of Gripper Kits

End-of-arm tooling for Sawyer Robots
We are excited to announce the ClickSmart™ family of gripper kits, a unique solution for end-of-arm tooling for Sawyer that incorporates smart sensing and rapid swapping capabilities, resulting in the first fully integrated robotic solution available on the market through a single vendor.
Rethink's complete solution continues to simplify robot deployments. When the ClickSmart Plate is attached to any Sawyer robot, it will immediately recognize the type of end-effector and know how to control it.

Make Sure Your RFID System is

Answer 3 questions
With the recent widespread adoption of RFID technology in manufacturing plants Balluff has encountered quite a number of customers who feel like they have been "trapped" by the technology. 

The most common issue is their current system cannot handle the increase in the requirements of the production line. In a nutshell, their system isn't scalable. Your RFID system should be viable for much longer if a few simple questions can be answered up front.

VISOR® Multishot renders even the smallest height differences visible
Track & Trace of Plastic Parts

Raised or recessed object details - such as embossed digits and characters on a credit card - are difficult to detect with standard image processing methods. Even use of lateral lighting generally results in poorly identifiable contours due to overexposure and shadows. We have remedied this situation by equipping our VISOR® series of vision sensors with the new multishot function.

Contours now stand out clearly so that raised or recessed letters and digits can be easily read, e.g. using the vision sensor's OCR function. The result is a dependable solution for identifying and tracking any type of plastic component - powered by SensoPart.   Other application examples for VISOR® Multishot are:
  • Reading of data matrix codes molded directly into plastic surfaces
  • Detection of damage such as dents or scratches
  • Recognition of raised adhesive beads on the same colored background
  • Elimination of changing backgrounds (e.g. in packaging industry)
