Depalletization made easy with ABB + Pickit 3D
Many depalletizing operations are performed using manual labor because automating this process can prove to be difficult. This is especially true of boxes due to their matching color (difficult to distinguish one from another) as well as their tendency to have straight, flat surfaces. Pickit 3D greatly simplifies this process and reduces cycle times by detecting multiple boxes from a single box image, then detects matches regardless of their orientation and layout. Pickit 3D, together with an ABB robot, will provide a fully automated solution that helps prevent work place injuries as well as saving you time and money.

The newly released Pickit 2.4 software update makes this process effortless bringing you:

  • Better experience and performance for axisymmetric parts
  • Find more pickable parts per detection run
  • More consistent cycle times
