KUKA.PickControl: robot-based software for conveyor tracking with integrated image processing.
Product cycles are getting shorter and shorter, while resource and energy efficiency is receiving ever greater attention. Particularly in the consumer goods industry, which includes fast-moving consumer goods, the market is highly dynamic and fast-paced. Flexible production solutions are in demand. With the KUKA.PickControl robot software, you can switch quickly between different production scenarios. This allows seasonal packaging designs, for example, to be easily implemented. The application meets the requirements posed by the logistics and consumer goods sectors, but is also suitable for other industries and tasks.
Automated picking and packing of unsorted parts at multiple conveyor belts: Functions
KUKA.PickControl is a special software package that coordinates and synchronizes picking and packing operations involving multiple robots and pick and place locations
. It ensures a smooth and energy-efficient production sequence with the following functions:
- Support of predefined setdown patterns: You can preconfigure any number of different setdown patterns and then simply select the scenario that is currently required via the user interface. Is standard packaging or XXL packaging required? You decide.
- Material flow simulation for system design: We will help you to achieve the desired throughput rates for your goods. KUKA perfectly harmonizes your robots, workpieces, conveyor speed and robot velocity with the aid of a material flow simulation.
