EYEFEEDER ACCESSORIES

It is possible to extend the EYEFEEDER® concept with serveral accessories.
These are the main accessories.

vision camera

The vision-system:
Any vision system that suits your product best can be used. 

The best result is achieved when the vision camera is used with an IR-filter. Only the IR-backlight illumination of the EYEFEEDER® will be visible and there is no influence of daylight or other light sources.

The vision system can be directly connected to the DENSO robot-controller via Ethernet. The libraries of several vision-system suppliers available in the DENSO controller, allows you to communicate and calibrate the vision-system using the DENSO software. 

Monitoring the vision-system can also be done at the DENSO teaching-pendant.

WE WILL HELP YOU

We help every customer who needs a robot application where products must be separated for further processing. We can advise you on what is needed to get a fast reliable and simple application working.

The only thing we need is information regarding the product that you want to use with the EYEFEEDER application. We will make a proposal as to which EYEFEEDER model, robot model, vision camera and accessories are required for a properly working application.

The EYEFEEDER® makes 100% flexible non-stop production possible, change of product can be done quickly. This makes automation affordable with low batches. Other than systems with conveyer tracking it does not require a return system which allows compact applications.

Possible applications:
Pick & place, quality control, assembly, machine loading and packaging. Products dimensions up to 250 mm (diagonal) and maximum weight of approximately 300 grams can be handled.

Application examples:
Multiform metal-part feeding, sorting or candy, assembly or speaker houses, transplanting plant cuttings, etc.

If you have any feeding requirements, please contact us for further information.
