Beyond the Concept: Automate Your Manufacturing Processes with 3D Machine Vision Scanners


3D machine vision scanners are changing the manufacturing industry by augmenting automation systems to make their capabilities more powerful and adaptable. Terry Hermary, co-founder and CEO of Hermary, and Doug Taylor, principal engineer at Concept Systems, joined host of Beyond the Concept Tyler Kern to discuss how this technology is benefiting the industry.

The data acquired through 3D vision allows companies to learn throughput information, find gaps in processes, measure goals in real time and predict issues before they arise. This is possible through the three different types of data collected: 3D data, solution data and results data.

The main benefit from this technology is the ability to interact with the data, the flexibility and level of accuracy in providing solutions.

“It is amazing the information you can gather beyond what you’re actually looking for,” Taylor said.

However, Taylor also warned that it is easy to get ‘lost’ in the massive amount of information collected.

While many industries have realized the benefits of 3D vision, the semi-conductor industry is the top adaptor, closely followed by wood processing. Hermary gave some real-life examples of manufacturer benefits, such as sawmills that have gone from labor-intensive, dangerous environments to significantly improved safety and much higher throughput.

Hermary aims to partner with companies and help incorporate this type of technology to make their processes more efficient and automated. Unfortunately, the biggest impediment to implementing this technology is the lack of system integrators that are 3D scanning savvy.

With every industry seeing a mass exodus of employees, 3D machine vision is a great way to fill those staffing gaps with robots, especially for repetitive tasks.

Concept Systems and Hermary invites customers to bring their biggest challenges for them to find a solution for.
