Wanted : Join us to make the best 3D Robot Vision

Become a Scorpion 3D Stinger for Robot Vision Integrator

Tordivel AS is a Norwegian based software company specialising in Industrial Machine Vision. We develop, distribute and support the Scorpion Vision Software globally, through our own sales offices, distributors and partners.

Subpixel marker location improves 3D Stereo Vision Accuracy

We are searching for 3D Robot Vision Integrators that want to make cost effective automation solutions by using robots and machine vision.

Why use 3D Machine Vision?

Flexible Robot systems require extremely robust guidance of picking position and product identification to be cost-effective.

2D Robot Vision is becoming obsolete

We do not recommend 2D robot vision anymore. We know that 3D camera calibration and sub-pixel measurements are fundamental advantages and needed to meet the challenge to meet the customers requirement for robust solutions

Faster and more accurate  3D Camera Calibration

We support automated 3D calibration to improve the accuracy and the reliability of a solution. This automation significantly reduce the time deployment and downtime of the system. We recommend using fixed 3D reference objects or to the robot itself for calibration.

The benefits in 3D robot vision are obvious:

  • Works in physical coordinates
    • easy to verify – can verify against cad drawings
  • Object location does not degrade when the object position changes
  • It is possible to detect that something is wrong
    • in 2D machine vision there is normally no quality measure
  • The systems are more accurate
  • The system should never fail

What can we offer?

Scorpion Vision Software is the state of art configurable standard vision software for implementation of flexible and powerful 3D robot vision applications:

  • A unique combination of power and simplicity.
  • As a Scorpion 3D Stinger Robot Vision Integrator you will get the following:
