Universal Robotics lands deal with pallet pooler

Locally based Universal Robotics, which has developed artificial intelligence technology for the logistics sector, has been chosen by a global giant in pallet and container tracking. Universal Robotics' deal with CHEP, which does business in 49 countries and tracks 285 million containers daily, calls for it to conduct 3D quality assurance inspections of pallets.

Replicating manual inspection requires a flexible, automated vision system that quickly identifies a wide range of defects, including raised nails, and wood damage – whether split, loose, or missing – at a productive line speed. This solution sees more of the pallet at a faster rate than current approaches, delivering consistent quality levels for CHEP’s partners and customers.
