via PRNewswire

VANCOUVER , British Columbia, Nov. 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Braintech,Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: BRHI), a leading provider of vision guided roboticsoftware solutions, announced today that it has received an additional orderfrom ABB Canada for a major automotive tier supplier, to identify and locatebrake and axle components in an assembly application using Braintech'ssoftware, eVisionFactory, (eVFTM).

The application, as part of an ABB TrueView(TM) vision guided robotsystem, utilizes Braintech's SC3D(TM) (Single Camera 3D) vision to identify,inspect and locate components in imprecise positions. SC3D first locates abrake assembly in non-precision dunnage and then is used again to accuratelylocate the axle's position on a conveyor for assembly of the two components.In both cases, the required offset information is communicated to the ABBrobot via eVF.

Owen Jones , Braintech's CEO, commented, "We're receiving more requests formaterial handling operations where vision is used both on the 'pick' and'place' of the operation. The value is in the elimination of precisionfixturing on both sides of the process. Through sales and marketing efforts,we expect to see a rising demand for these types of systems from bothautomotive and non-automotive manufacturers."
