STEMMER IMAGING AG signs distribution agreement with Zivid
11 Jul 2019
Employing a technique of time-multiplexed structured light projection, the cameras capture 3D (xyz), colour (RGB) and quality (Q) point cloud data on a single sensor chip, producing vivid high definition 3D colour images of even the most challenging of target object materials.
Application areas include logistics de-palletising, random bin-picking, collaborative pick-and-place, assembly, packaging, and quality control.
Dietmar Serbée, Corporate Product and Market Strategy Director at STEMMER IMAGING, said: “Zivid’s high-performance cameras are a perfect complement to STEMMER IMAGING’S existing 3D camera portfolio. Not only do they provide an interesting alternative imaging technology providing a human-like vision capability, they fit perfectly in a market sector where we are planning significant expansion.”
With a high dynamic range, built-in hardware and software reflection filters and a rapid response electronic iris the Zivid cameras enable high-quality 3D colour imaging of previously problematic translucent, shiny and dark objects without any compromise on speed. The cameras operate at an acquisition rate of 13Hz with a 2.3Mpix image resolution and are delivered factory calibrated and ready to use.
Mikkel Orheim, Zivid’s VP of Global Sales said: “To support the fast-growing market of collaborative robotics and 3D vision systems, we are delighted to partner with a company of the size, reach and technical expertise of STEMMER IMAGING. Their network of system integrators, OEMs and machine builders, local representation in all major European markets and their world class machine vision expertise – all together adds significant value in supporting our clients through their automation and digitisation projects.”
