PREVENT THE USAGE OF DEFECTIVE PALLETS
Damaged or defective pallets can be harmful to your staff, your conveyors, your automated warehouse and your profit. With the PalletInspector, the inspection and classification of your pallets is automated.
AUTOMATED INSPECTION SYSTEM FOR RETURNABLE PALLETS
Reusable pallets like EPAL, CHEP, IPP & LPR are all valuable assets needing to be quality assured after every use. With the help of our automated inspection system, the PalletInspector detection of defects is done effectively and quickly, ensuring that pallets needing repair are identified.
WELL-PROVEN IN TOUGH ENVIRONMENTS
The PalletInspector is built to industry standard, withstanding demanding environments such as pallet repair & reconditioning. The PalletInspector is evolved from our TrayInspector technology, which is well-proven in tough, high humidity environments for over a decade.
HOW DOES PALLETINSPECTOR WORK?
- The pallets are transported by your existing conveyor system through the PalletInspector. They must be separated to enable front and backside inspection.
- The pallets are inspected during transport through the system. PalletInspector verifies that the pallets are free from residue, deformations and defects.
- Data from the inspection are compared with the preset tolerances and parameters (for example UIC 435-2, DNV sorting regulations for EUR pallets), if a defect is found the system signals the above system to reject the pallet.
- Information on defects is stored on a local database.
- Sorting criteria is sent to above system for automatic sorting and show on screen for operator.
- High speed inspection
- Scalable performance
- Accepts both wooden and plastic pallets
- Works with nearly all pallet configurations (Including EPAL, CHEP, LPR & IPP)
- Rejection and sorting based on defect type
- Adaptable to existing production lines
- Service agreement offered (with remote support)
- Real-time production statistics
- Pallet defect detections:
- Protruding nails
- Cracks in boards & blocks
- Sorting based on appearance
- Missing, broken or dislocated boards or blocks
- Blocked tunnels
- Logo detection & verification (including iPAL QR code)
- Plastic/paper residue
