    LMI Technologies Receives the Certification for Integration with Universal Robots

LMI Technologies Vice President of Sales, Len Chamberlain, exclusively unveiled to IEN Europe in a video interview at SPS IPC Drives that the company has been certified for integration with Universal Robots.

Universal Robots (UR) is the market leader within collaborative robot arms (called cobots) targeting companies of all sizes. Their easy-to-use and cost-efficient UR3, UR5, UR10, and UR e-series models are deployed in several thousand production environments around the world today—in key factory automation applications such as pick-and-place, quality inspection, and packaging and palletizing.

Integration with the Gocator 3210 snapshot sensor

The UR certification applies specifically to LMI Technologies’ Gocator® 3D snapshot sensors, which use stereo structured light technology to measure shape and orientation of parts for automating inspection, part movement, and guidance type applications.

Users are able to easily integrate Gocator® 3D snapshot sensors into applications using UR devices with support provided by the Gocator® URCap plugin. The plugin allows engineers to connect to a robot controller or PC application to perform sensor hand-eye calibration and implement pick-and-place movement. There is no need for additional programming, making it easy to set up robotic systems for factory automation applications.

“In many ways, UR and LMI have a lot in common as we both strive to build 3D solutions that are cost effective and easy to use. Connecting 3D machine vision with robots is a natural fit that enables robots to do so much more by responding to dynamic changes in the environment. We are excited about the many benefits this combination of 3D sensing and robotic technology can provide to customers in their pick-and-place and quality inspection applications,” said Terry Arden, CEO of LMI Technologies.

Graduated in political sciences and international relations in Paris, Anis joined the team in early 2019. Editor for IEN Europe and the new digital magazine AI IEN, he is a new tech enthusiast. Also passionate about sports, music, cultures and languages.
