- Why ZIVID
Experience complete and detailed point clouds of transparent items using the Zivid 2+ 3D camera family with Zivid Omni Engine. As transparent materials scatter and reflect light in such complex ways, plastics, polybags, shrink-wrap, and bubble wrap have long been considered impossible to reliably capture in 3D. Introducing Zivid 2+, the first machine vision camera that can see everything, even transparent objects.
Piece-picking automation has proven to be difficult because of a huge number of different item SKUs (stock-keeping units) and challenging parts to image, especially transparent ones. With the introduction of the Omni Engine in Zivid 2+, there is now finally an industrial 3D camera that has all the capabilities required to be a perfect fit for multi-SKU piece picking in the world of e-commerce fulfillment.Mecalux piece-picking system powered by Siemens and Zivid 3D technology
Transparent objects were considered impossible. This was stopping perhaps the biggest automation innovation possibility out there, piece picking in e-commerce. Zivid simply couldn’t accept that, so we went and did it. We can proudly say that for the first time anywhere, Zivid has unlocked transparency in 3D machine vision." - Henrik Schumann-Olsen, Co-Founder and CTO of Zivid
