Smooth pizza picking with a robot

Smooth pizza picking with a robot

After the installation of robotics and Cognex VisionPro® vision software, Panidea is able to quickly and easily adapt to consumer demand. The Italian producers need to package three different shapes of pizza that are all randomly placed on the same conveyor belt. In order to do so, they implemented a system featuring a robotic picker, guided by Cognex vision. As the different pizzas move along the conveyor belt, Cognex vision identifies and communicates the location of each pizza to the robot. This system is capable of packaging sixty to eighty pizzas per minute while maintaining proper shape and without losing any toppings.
