Multipix Imaging is to distribute Photoneo´s 3D scanner products within the UK and Ireland, helping to develop the areas of collaborative robots, drones and self-driving vehicles.
Photoneo, which is based in Slovakia, believes that its patented advanced 3D vision technology is setting a new benchmark for smart vision systems. It will help to drive the future in autonomous systems.
Photoneo PhoXi 3D scanners use a laser light pattern projector that emits a set of coding patterns onto the target scene, interpreted by a single camera it constructs a point cloud. The PhoXi is capable of delivering 16 million measurements per second, either in 3.2 megapixels at 5fps, or 0.8 megapixels at 20 fps.
PhoXi scanners are aimed at robot handling applications for bin picking, where randomly placed, semi-oriented objects can be picked from a container or pallet and placed on a conveyor belt. The scanners are also compatible with multiple industrial robot brands.
Sales Director at Multipix Imaging Simon Hickman said: “We are very excited to be able to offer our customers the latest 3D scanner products from Photoneo. With a massive growth area in use of robots and automation systems, Photoneo 3D products are the perfect fit.”
