Pickit Hole is a detection engine for detecting circular holes of known size on a surface. With an HD camera, it can detect holes as small as 6mm in diameter, which makes it a good choice for screwing and assembly applications.

This detection engine is an optional add-on that can be added to a Pickit system by means of a license module. Please get in touch with the Pickit sales team to learn more.


Detection parameters

The hole detection engine has the following configuration parameters:

  • Hole diameter: Size of the hole to detect.

  • Minimum matching score: Percentage of hole contour points to be confirmed for a detection to be valid.

  • Matching tolerance: Allowed deviation between hole and contour points.

  • Maximum hole fill rate: Maximum percentage of the hole allowed to be filled (by surface and contour points) for a detection to be valid.
