Universal Robotics to Offer Innovative Pallet Inspection System for CHEP

CHEP, a provider of pallet and container pooling services recently declared that the company has chosen the Universal Robotics Spatial Vision Inspection (SVI) for automated 3D pallet inspection.

By precisely detecting pallet defects, SVI will minimize scrap and raw materials, while the consistency of the overall pallet quality will be enhanced benefiting CHEP customers.

According to CHEP Senior Director, Global Process Engineering, Ed Mabe, the innovative approach from Universal Robotics offers affordable 3D pallet inspection system to CHEP. The consistency of product quality will be enhanced and will avoid human variability within the inspection process, promoting automation in the supply chain. Such solutions will promote CHEP’s mission to create performance enhancing equipment pooling solutions to the customers.

Pallet inspection will generally be carried out visually with altering levels of automated machinery and manual handling. The pallet cannot be lifted and flipped to see all surfaces. By performing strict audits, the variability of visual inspection can be eliminated. 3D vision is more convenient than traditional 2D vision as it has been limited by the technology and the structure of a pallet. Using versatile, automated vision system, manual inspection will be replicated detecting various defects such as wood damage and raised nails, at a productive line speed. This solution will lead to pallet providing reliable quality levels for CHEP’s partners and customers.
