Pick-and-place machines

Accuracy and speed are the crucial factors in pick-and-place machines. Besides 2D alignment, 3D tilt detection is also a must. This calls for a clever optical solution. The fact that parts are becoming increasingly smaller poses a particular challenge. High-resolution cameras are needed in order to recognize every single important detail. But the larger volume of data still has to be transmitted quickly. Creative approaches that lead to the desired result are needed here.
