The SCAPE Bin picking Manager™ handles recognition and picking of parts, when the bin picker cell is running. The robot sends commands to SCAPE Bin Picking Manager™ through the EC API, and SCAPE Bin Picking Manager™ takes over the control of the robot in some parts of the cycle. Sensor data overlaid with recognition results is shown in the graphical user interface (GUI) allowing the user to verify that parts have been recognized correctly.
Additional software options are available depending on needs for speed (cycle times) or precision gripping.
SCAPE Communication Server™ enables communication of robot movements and status between SCAPE Controller and robot controller (or another external programmable unit). The SCAPE External Control API™ uses this communication server.
SCAPE Calibration Manager™ is the application used for configuring all the units in a work cell, such as the robot, cameras, grippers, light sources and sensors. This also involves measuring the locations of units in the cell and calibrating sensors.
SCAPE Part Training Studio™ is the main application for training new parts based on a CAD files. Some of its features includes configuration of feature extraction, recognition parameters, training parameters and generally all parameters involved in preparing a new product for Bin-Picking.
