3D vision-based path generation for robots

CraftMate is a 3D vision technology centric platform for surface finishing processes.


Using a 3D camera based either on structured light or line profile sensors, CraftMate is able to perform a scan and construct a highly precise 3D model of a surface to be processed. 

The powerful path-planning engine takes the 3D model and performs path planning according to the user selection. The planner also takes into account the process specific parameters (feed rate, tool angle and applied pressure on the surface), collision check between robot, tool and surroundings. The complete planning calculation only takes a few seconds even if it is highly complex. Once the robot path is finished, you are ready to start.

The CrafteMate platform is an ideal solution of choice for high mix, low volume production. It is a highly flexible software platform that can be used to solve a wide range of surface finishing applications, such as grinding weld seams, sanding both big and small surfaces like boat/car maintenance, and many more.
Because of the LiDAR technology and the path planning engine embedded in the CraftMate, it is now possible to:
  • Process any shape of the working surfaces, whether if it is a plane, low curvature or even high complex curvature.    
  • Introduce a new workpiece or working surface within a few minutes, WITHOUT CAD model or heavy offline programming.
  • Customize your CraftMate to fit into your application, whether if it is UX and process parameters.
