Many of the bulk goods prepared in industrial production are available as unsorted bulk material. Prefabrication processes transfer their production to pallet cages or system boxes in a form that is unwieldy for traditional automation. Our current answer to this is called „The grip in the box“ or also bin picking. The challenging task arising from this is that bulk goods are in the pallet cage with an unsorted three-dimensional position of the workpieces. We use 3D camera technology with fringe projection and object detection to identify the gripping position. These pictures are evaluated in accordance with different assessment standards and provide the robot with the 3D gripping position and the order of the detected workpieces. Depending on the further processing requirements, we check the parts that have been removed from the grippers for position and quality in a downstream visual process. This check of the gripper results is used to safeguard the process when supplying subsequent processes. Out of tolerance gripper results lead to rejection or returning to bulk goods.
