Cognex Vision Sensors Selected by Japanese Robot Manufacturer
Cognex Corporation Posted 04/19/2007
Cognex, a supplier of machine vision sensors and systems, has announced that a Japanese supplier of industrial robots has standardised on Cognex In-Sight vision sensors for their 3-axis and SCARA robots.
The manufacturer will produce certain robot models with the In-Sight sensor integrated directly into the robot, and other models will be provided with specially designed firmware to optimise direct connection between In-Sight and the robot’s controller.
This partnership is expected to generate more than $300,000 in annual revenue for Cognex.
Cognex informed that vision-guided robots offer manufacturers increased flexibility and significant cost savings by eliminating the need for part fixturing, making it possible for different items to be manufactured on the same assembly line.
