Speed without Error – KUKA Vision Robots

Jan 5, 2015

KUKA vision robots help to bring greater error proofing solutions to production lines. Vision robots can work faster and more accurately than robots without. Their mounted cameras can see the part that is being manipulated and then ensure the process is happening precisely as needed. The KUKA vision robots can be programmed to perform precise movements to ensure that everything is being done correctly.


KUKA has been offer­ing weld­ing and oth­er indus­tri­al process­es to com­pa­nies for more than 100 years. How­ev­er, in the last few decades, KUKA has par­tial­ly turned its atten­tion to robot­ics, estab­lish­ing KUKA Robot­ics, a wing of the com­pa­ny ded­i­cat­ed to indus­tri­al automa­tion. In recent years, KUKA has made them faster, while also error-proof­ing them by adding the vision fea­ture to their robots and work cells.

Vision robots can work faster and even more accu­rate­ly than their coun­ter­parts with­out vision. KUKA installs vision cam­eras onto the robot arm that allows the robot to see” the parts that it is manip­u­lat­ing. This is help­ful when KUKA robots are sort­ing or per­form­ing some oth­er mate­r­i­al han­dling func­tion. The KUKA vision robot­ic sys­tem is pro­grammed with an algo­rithm that tells it what parts to inter­act with and what parts to not inter­act with. If the robot does not rec­og­nize the part, it does not per­form the pro­grammed application.

Not only does this allow robots to per­form at faster speeds than ever before, it also cuts down on work­er errors that can some­times be numer­ous in lengthy, dull mate­r­i­al han­dling posi­tions. KUKA robot­ic vision sys­tems ensure that the right parts get to all the right places, with­out hav­ing to wor­ry about mak­ing mis­takes or send­ing parts to the wrong place. This saves the com­pa­ny mon­ey by cut­ting out mis­takes before they are made and also improves the company’s rep­u­ta­tion and profit.
