LIPS® Vision Guided Robotics (VGR): Revolutionizing Footwear Automation

Updated: Mar 17, 2023


Footwear manufacturing has been a labor-intensive industry for decades. However, with advancements in technology, the industry has seen a paradigm shift towards automation. One such technology that is taking the footwear automation industry by storm is LIPS® Vision Guided Robotics (VGR). In this article, we will discuss how LIPS® VGR is delivering speed and cost advantages for footwear automation.

Introduction to LIPS® VGR Solution

LIPS® VGR solution is a cutting-edge technology that combines 3D Vision and AI technologies to enable smart factories, autonomous warehouses, and robot automation. The solution has revolutionized the manufacturing industry by automating many operations that were previously impossible to automate.

LIPS® VGR Solution for Footwear Industry

The footwear industry is one of the industries that has benefited greatly from LIPS® VGR solution. In the past, the adhesive bonding process of shoe soles involved human operators applying glue to various shoe styles and sizes. With LIPS® VGR solution, this process can now be automated by calculating the glue spraying path in real-time and applying the glue to various shoe sizes and surfaces.

How LIPS® VGR Solution Works

LIPS® VGR solution utilizes the LIPSedge AE400 Industrial 3D Camera, which generates a 3D point cloud of the shoe sole. The 3D point cloud is used to calculate the glue spraying path, which is then executed by the robot in real-time. This process eliminates the need for slow and expensive Line Scan Camera, reducing costs substantially.

Advantages of LIPS® VGR Solution

LIPS® VGR solution offers several advantages for footwear automation, including:

1. Speed:

The solution's real-time glue spraying path calculation and execution significantly reduce the time taken to apply glue to shoe soles.

2. Cost:

The solution eliminates the need for slow and expensive Line Scan Camera, reducing costs substantially.

3. Accuracy:

The solution's 3D Vision technology ensures accurate and consistent glue application, reducing material waste and improving product quality.


Conclusion

In conclusion, LIPS® Vision Guided Robotics (VGR) is a game-changer in the footwear automation industry. With its advanced 3D Vision and AI technologies, LIPS® VGR solution has automated many operations that were previously impossible to automate. Its advantages of speed, cost, and accuracy make it the go-to solution for footwear manufacturers who are looking to optimize their manufacturing process.
