Italian automation product maker Comau has unveiled the newest solution in its Machine Inspection Recognition Archetypes (MI.RA) family of hardware-agnostic, intelligent vision systems, the MI.RA/OnePicker.

MI.RA/OnePicker is designed to autonomously pick miscellaneous objects from the same bin without relying on CAD-based assistance or prior information about their size, shape, colour or characteristics. 

As an all-in-one-system, MI.RA/OnePicker comes with Comau’s Racer-5 Cobot, a six-axis articulated robot that delivers speed, accuracy, repeatability and certified collaboration safety without cages. 

Because the compact Cobot can automatically switch from industrial mode to collaborative mode, working at full speeds when human operators are not in the vicinity and at collaborative speeds when they are, productivity remains high and cycle times are reduced.

“MI.RA/OnePicker is a result of our continued efforts to make complex technology more accessible and effective for a diverse range of industries,” says Nicole Clement, chief business unit leader for advanced automation solutions.

“Comau’s dedication to powering automation for companies of all sizes with intelligent robotic solutions now extends to complex piece picking operations in industries such as warehousing and manufacturing, among others.” 

Using artificial intelligence, the solution pairs state-of-the-art vision technology with advanced sensors to pick randomly displaced objects after calculating the picking pose in mere seconds. 

The compact and lightweight robot vision guidance system is adaptable to any brand of commercial robot, customised bin or customised gripper and can be used for pick-and-place, kitting, sorting, warehouse or e-commerce applications.
