Material Status in the Turnover Boxes

The table below illustrates the solution’s applicability to material status in the turnover boxes.

Feasible Illustration Not feasible Illustration

The height of the materials inside the turnover box cannot exceed the top edge of the turnover box, and the camera needs to capture a relatively complete edge feature of the turnover box.

turnover box basic info scope of application 2 1

The height of the materials inside the turnover box exceeds the top edge of the turnover box, obscuring the edge feature of the turnover box.

turnover box basic info scope of application 2 2

There is a significant gap between the materials in the turnover box and the top edge of the turnover box.

turnover box basic info scope of application 2 3

There are partitions among the materials in the turnover box. The partitions are flush with the top edge of the turnover box.

Unsupported Functions

The turnover box depalletizing solution does not support the following functions.

  • Identify the dimensions of the turnover boxes. The turnover box depalletizing solution can only recognize the position of turnover boxes, and cannot accurately recognize the dimensions of turnover boxes. To recognize the dimensions of different turnover boxes, it is recommended to use deep learning to assist the recognition.

  • Identify deformed turnover boxes. If the turnover boxes are deformed, it may affect the accuracy of vision recognition and even result in collisions during depalletizing. Before depalletizing, deformed turnover boxes should be removed to ensure production stability.

Technical Specifications

The technical specifications for the turnover box depalletizing solution are as follows.

  • Positioning accuracy: ± 3 mm

  • Recognition success rate: more than 99%

  • Execution time of vision system: within 4 s
