There are two types of conveyer tracking.
Sensor tracking is used to pick up workpieces that move on a line in a straight line at arbitrary intervals. When a workpiece passes a photoelectric sensor, the signal is triggered. The position of the workpiece is programmed beforehand, and every time a workpiece passes a sensor to trigger the signal, the robot sequentially calculates where the workpiece will move to and follows it.
Vision tracking is used to pick up workpieces that move in a line in arbitrary positions and postures. When a vision sensor detects a workpiece using the image recognition function, the signal is triggered. Every time the signal is triggered, the workpiece's position and posture that are detected using the image recognition function are programmed, and the robot sequentially calculates where the workpiece will move to and follows it.
Troublesome conveyer tracking adjustment can be easily carried out with the wizard-type GUI.
