Vision software from Matrox now supports DENSO’s industrial robot interface
Matrox Imaging has announced that its Matrox Design Assistant machine vision software now supports DENSO’s binary control access protocol (b-CAP) robot interface.
With the announcement, the Design Assistant application development environment can be used to implement vision-based guidance of DENSO robots without the need to directly program a DENSO robot controller.
"Matrox Imaging’s implementation of our b-CAP interface within Design Assistant means that all logic for the vision subsystem and the robot itself can be implemented within a single development environment," said Yousuke Sawada, manager, Controller Business Unit, DENSO WAVE Incorporated. "Integrators will appreciate the significant reduction in development time and cost this affords."
Sam Lopez, director of sales and marketing, Matrox Imaging, also commented: "Demand for robots is ever-increasing as companies seek the benefits of automation and DENSO robots are widely used in manufacturing industries around the world," Lopez. "With our support of DENSO’s b-CAP interface in Design Assistant, our joint customers can now more quickly and cost-effectively deploy DENSO robots with vision-based guidance to improve quality, increase productivity, ensure safety and provide flexibility in their operations."
