Vision Edition-U Product Page

Image processing feature covering the whole robotic automation process

Vision Edition-U counts the parts quantity and reads weight to ensure correct pack contents. A wide range of image processing functions ensures the efficiency at every step of the robotic automation process and keeps a high standard of output.


Single camera, multiple point inspection

Vision Edition-U can inspect screw holes made, or parts fitted by the robot using image processing. Thanks to a flexible Pan/Tilt/Zoom camera, large areas such as a car door can be inspected by a single camera and eliminate human inspection errors.


Automate machine tending with image processing

By monitoring the display of a CNC machine, Vision Edition-U facilitates robots to perform machine tending. This is a simple and fast method of achieving the task without a hard-wired connection. It eliminates the necessity of operator assistance and provides longer, uninterrupted hours of operation.


Extensive image processing capability

Vision Edition-U provides various image processing features such as 1D/2D code and character reading, pattern matching and shape detection to expand collaborative robot application.


Simple implementation with intuitive programming

Vision Edition-U has intuitive drag & drop flowchart JOB programming. UR controller triggers Vision Edition-U image processing and receives the result to control the robot.
