Cognex AlignSight™ sensors offer an affordable solution for solving vision-guided robotic (VGR) and stage alignment applications. Packaged as a self-contained alignment solution, these alignment sensors deliver high levels of accuracy without the need for an external controller to run the application. Compact in form factor, AlignSight is easy to set up and calibrate enabling quick location and alignment of patterns and fiducials, even under adverse conditions or high level of degradation.
With high accuracy, automatic hand-eye calibration, flexible robot integration library, and PLC integration, AlignSight is the preferred choice for machine builders, systems integrators, and end users in the electronics industry in need of highly accurate robot and stage alignment for assembly and process applications.
Vision Guided Robotics (VGR)
Using robots to perform pick & place and machine
tending tasks has become commonplace in electronics
manufacturing. AlignSight sensors provide support for
vision-guided robotic applications through either one
or more fixed-mount cameras for guided pick/guided
place and grip correction; as well as robot-mounted
configurations where the camera moves in conjunction
with the robot. Common applications include:
▪ Insertion of various shaped connectors onto substrate
▪ Mounting of various shaped parts on a housing
▪ Loading/unloading of parts to/from testing machine
