Vision Automates Glass Handling

June 1, 2009
An insulated glass (IG) automatic load and unloading  system uses a six-axis ABB robot and the vendor’s machine vision system to unload IG units from the production line and place them into slotted glass racks.
Another system can pick single lites from slotted racks and load them onto the IG production  line. Using proprietary vision technology, the system can precisely locate the rack slots to load and unload glass and can be calibrated for various glass and unit thicknesses. Capable of handling a large range of glass sizes, the system also features seamless integration with  line controls.QComp Technologies Inc. www.qcomptech.com920.757.0775
