How Pandrol is automating paint lines for railroad tracks clips

Bin picking case with a very interesting shape – railroad tracks clip. Watch our new customer use case video.


This application is for automatically loading and unloading the painting line of clips for railroad tracks. They are picked from a bin, hung on a conveyor with hooks. On the other end, the painted clips are taken from the hooks and dropped in a new bin.

What you see is a test station, prepared to go in production. Robotic paint lines can be fully automated: from loading the parts on a moving conveyor, to painting and then unloading again by the robots.

This is the first 3D vision experience for our customer Pandrol . They managed to set up this bin picking station with Pickit camera entirely in-house with some guidance from the Pickit's remote support. Well done!
