Pallet and container pooling services provider in the US, CHEP has selected the Universal Robotics Spatial Vision Inspection (SVI) solution for automated 3D pallet inspection.
SVI identifies pallet defects accurately and reliably and is expected to reduce scrap and raw materials, while improving the consistency of overall pallet quality for CHEP customers.
CHEP Global Process Engineering senior director Ed Mabe said the novel approach from Universal Robotics provides the company with a new low-cost 3D pallet inspection system that will eliminate human variability in the inspection process and improve the consistency of product quality.
"Solutions like this further CHEP’s mission to deliver innovative, performance enhancing equipment pooling solutions to our customers," Mabe said.
The new technology is expected to see more of the pallet at a faster rate compared to the existing approaches and delivers consistent quality levels for the partners and customers of CHEP.
