IT+Robotics designs and develops highly innovative solutions for robotics and industrial automation
IT+Robotics teams' mission is to increase the flexibility of industrial processes by transforming the results of academic research into cutting-edge industrial solutions.
Their research and Development department is in constant contact with the most advanced research institutes in Italy and aboard to create and improve technologies that IT+Robotics will transfer to companies thanks to its deep knowledge of the industrial sector. IT+Robotics in these years has grown and established itself as one of the leaders in the industrial vision sector, in Italy and abroad, exporting its made in Italy technology to several foreign countries. IT+Robotics deals with machine vision applied to quality control and robot guidance. Moreover, IT+Robotics focuses on offline programming software for work cells and machinery.
Bin-picking consists of three main types: structured, semi-structured and random. In this day and age, it is becoming more and more viable to utilise robots for random bin-picking with the advanced vision systems and programs being created. Remove the effort from unloading, sorting and packing by combining one of the UR robots with a vision system.
Automate inventory management by using collaborative robots. Upgrading your current warehouse infrastructure to include Mobile Industrial Robots will free up your workers for more value-added tasks. Automate everything from sorting and packing to the transport and organisation of items within your warehouse.
With the advancement in motion detecting sensors, it has become even safer to incorporate collaborative robots into your current factory setup. The collaborative robots are able to safely and autonomously manoeuvre around human workers to accomplish their tasks with the addition of these sensors.
Vision Inspection can be implemented with a collaborative robot and an accessory such as the Robotiq Wrist Camera. The Robotiq's Wrist Camera's capabilities are part detection and localization and color validation.
The Universal Robot is essential in reducing inspection cycle times and provides consistency in 3D scanning from one operator to the next. Universal Robots of all sizes have been integrated with a variety of 3D and 2D sensors to capture dense, high quality for data analysis.
EyeT+Pick | IT Robotics
EyeT+Pick is the outstanding 3D device for random bin picking. EyeT+Pick allows a robot manipulator to collect objects randomly arranged within a container.
The use of vision systems brings many benefits with respect to conventional automation systems. One of the most important factors is the extreme flexibility with which various types of products can be handled using the same automation. Since the system collects the products directly from the containers in which they are placed, there is no need for mechanical systems dedicated to each single type of product. New product models can be defined directly by the operator using Smart Pick 3D Solid, the programming software supplied along with the system itself.
EyeT+Inspect | IT Robotics
EyeT+Inspect is the outstanding 3D device for robotic visual inspection combining robust 3D vision to inspect product shape with fast 2D vision to inspect product surface.
EyeT+Inspect optimizes production thanks to automatic and objective removal of defective products from the production line.
EyeT+Inspect is designed to be integrated with a robot to manipulate the product in front of the device or else to manipulate the device on the product. To ease robot programming, EyeT+Inspect exploits Real-Time Visual Feedback.
Real-Time Visual Feedback allows to define inspection robot path easily with real-time 3D acquisition feedback thanks to device direct connection to robot controller. New product models can be defined directly by the operator using Smart Inspect 3D, the software solution to configure the system and collect detailed statistics about the quality of the production.
EyeT+Inspect can be perfectly integrated with the well-established software solution Smart Inspect 3D to configure the system and collect detailed statistics about production.
Smart Inspect 3D is powered easily to use software tools for 2D and 3D visual inspection. The most flexible and easy to use software tool works by comparison: the defect is detected comparing the shape in 3D or the surface in 2D of the current product with a reference product acquired during a learning cycle.
WorkCellSimulator | IT Robotics
Instead of testing new tasks directly in the real plant, WorkCellSimulator saves many stop-production days simulating the work cell in a 3D virtual environment.
Starting from the high-level description of the process, WorkCellSimulator builds the virtual environment and simulate the behavior of the machines (e.g. bending machines, cartesian robots, CNC machines…) involved. lrWorkCellSimulator uses the most advanced artificial intelligence algorithms to automatically ensure no collisions and maximum efficiency paths. The simulation results are then translated in the controller program, supporting the most common robot and CN manufacturers, to be uploaded on robots and machines.
The WorkCellSimulator framework has a modular architecture that adapts to the simulation of any type of industrial process. Its flexibility is extended by the scripting system that allows the customization of the process without requiring any special programming skills.
WorkCellSimulator is the best choice in industrial automation, it facilitates programming at all levels: from the most complex work cells to the single machine.
The system integrator swiss army knife
The framework helps the system integrators to create tailored tools that are not available in the common robotic simulations suites. The tools will enable the operator, thanks to the AI powered task-planning engine, to dramatically reduce the process design and configuration times.
WorkCellSimulator uses the most advanced artificial intelligence algorithms to autonomously define the production process, controlling one or more manipulator robots and the machinery in the work cell.
The framework helps the machine-builders to improve their programming interfaces for their own machines passing from programming the task to simply configure it using brand new algorithms for task and motion planning.
