Application

Let your robot understand what it sees.

With the support of artificial intelligence and deep learning, Mech-Mind Robotics offers cost-effective and easy-to-implement solutions for bin picking. Whether it's a classic reachpick out of a box with sorted parts, or random bin picking with chaotic and heterogeneous parts - Mech-Mind Robotics enables any type of machine tending controlled by machine vision. 

Our AI is specialized in detecting bulk material or partially structured workpieces and calculating the optimal gripping point. Taking the singularities of each robot into account, a collision-free motion sequence is automatically calculated.

Core advantages of the Mech-Mind solution

Cost-effective 

In the field of AI-driven vision systems, made in China not only means state-of-the-art technology, but also an excellent price-performance ratio. Most of our 3D vision solutions provide our customers with an ROI of less than one year. 

Intelligent motion control

With optimal path planning and collision monitoring, Mech-Mind Robotics ensures particularly high stability and reliability even in challenging situations. Smart algorithms thus enable process-reliable solutions for every conceivable application in bin picking.

AI-supported and intelligent 

At the heart of Mech-Mind Robotics' all-in-one solutions is its sophisticated artificial intelligence. With the help of Deep Learning, robots recognize complex components and pick them up at the right place. This not only enables random bin picking of unsorted objects - it also  reduces the need for matching with CAD templates.

Quick and easy deployment

With the visualized and code-free programming interface Mech-Viz, robots can be controlled quickly and easily with just a few clicks. The entire motion sequence can also be simulated in advance and thus reliably checked. Mech-Mind Robotics thus meets the need for automation technologies that are as low-threshold and highly flexible as possible.

Process

Fast. Safe . Efficient.
More productivity in bin picking

If parts have to be picked from boxes in bulk or only partially pre-positioned, the use of bin picking is required. After the objects have been safely picked by a robot, they are precisely positioned for the next process step.

Precision

+/- 0.05 mm at 0.6 m distance, up to +/- 3.0 mm at 3 m distance.

Objects

Support of simple to complex geometries. Optimal recognition of all surface types, from matte to glossy, reflective or even partially transparent. Even colors do not play a role.

Cycle time

up to 3 seconds per cycle

Flexibility

Even dark or highly reflective parts with complex structures are reliably detected

Crankshafts are usually difficult to handle due to their structure and reflective surface. Thanks to the high-quality detection data of the Mech-Eye camera, the path planning can be easily adapted for the Mech-Viz robot controller. Collisions are thus reliably avoided.

Case Studies

Automotive industry: Sorting of components

A large number of individual components are required in an automotive assembly production line. The automated loading of a wide variety of components can be integrated into the assembly process reliably with the all-in-one solution from Mech-Mind Robotics. The robot selects the required parts, picks them up collision-free and guides them to their destination in a stable manner.

Steel treatment: Machine loading of metal rings

Metal rings are reflective and often have different diameters. Conventional machine vision solutions can only detect such components with difficulty. For our customer in the metalworking industry, Mech-Mind Robotics implemented a system solution that enables the robot to remove densely packed parts individually from a deep container and deposit them at the target location. With the help of integrated algorithms such as Deep Learning, even randomly arranged or closely spaced metal rings (minimum distance of 0) no longer cause any problems.

Automotive industry:
Machine tending of crankshafts

Due to their complex structure and reflective surface, crankshafts represent a major challenge for automation processes. Mech-Mind Robotics was able to meet the high requirements of its customer: With the help of a high-precision anti-reflective camera from the Mech-Eye series and AI-supported machine vision, the robot detects the optimal gripping point of the heavy metal objects stacked in a container, picks them up individually and places them safely on the conveyor belt.
