Mech-Mind Robotics, a Chinese AI startup, has announced the launch of its next-generation Mech-Eye Nano Industrial 3D Camera. Featuring a smaller size with high-quality 3D imaging, the Mech-Eye Nano is aimed at precision-required applications and on-arm mounting for pick-and-place robot applications.
The Mech-Eye Nano is equipped with fast-structured light, giving the palm-sized camera the ability to generate complete, detailed, and accurate point clouds with native and aligned color for several objects, including tiny, shiny, reflective, and colored objects. The company said depth accuracy is optimized to 0.05 mm to 0.3-0.4 m.
Because of its small size and lightweight housing, Mech-Eye Nano is well suited for on-arm mounting in pick-and-place robotics, Mind-Mech said. This includes applications such as assembly, screw driving, high-precision picking, and inspection.
Additional features include:
- Fast acquisition and 3D image processing, which enables the Nano to meet a wide range of typical industrial applications, resulting in higher depth resolution for cases when precision and speed are required.
- Industrial suitability with IP65. With a compact aluminum housing, Mech-Eye Nano is protected against dirt, dust, splash water or cleaning agents. The camera has obtained CE, FCC, VCCI, and RoHS certifications.
- Complete suite for simple use. The system comes with a multi-language SDK for popular platforms, and end-users can integrate Mech-Vision graphical vision software and the Mech-Viz intelligent robot programming environment to develop customized applications.
The company’s full industrial 3D cameras line includes the Mech-Eye Laser, Mech-Eye Pro Enhanced, and Mech-Eye Deep options, in addition to the new Mech-Eye Nano. The company, founded in 2016, has deployed Mech-Eye cameras in more than 1,000 applications worldwide, including manufacturing, steel, food, logistics, finance, and healthcare applications. The company has developed a full R&D infrastructure including 3D cameras, machine vision algorithms, software and intelligent robot programming offerings.
“Mech-Mind specializes in enabling manufacturing by utilizing the best practice of AI and human-robotics interaction,” said Tianlan Shao, founder and CEO of Mech-Mind. “The new generation of Mech-Eye Nano enhances our offering of accuracy applications in space-saving environments.”
