AUTOMATED/ROBOTIC PALLET INSPECTION SYSTEM

Avoid production stops with automated pallet control

At Ferrum Group, we have developed a range of automated/robotic pallet inspection and handling systems with different functionality and capacities to meet all industry needs. Our pallet control solutions focus on preventing production downtime due to defective and unhygienic pallets. Automated inspection and sorting of pallets increases quality and capacity compared to manual pallet checks. The result is higher output and minimization of pallet defects in the production.

Be inspired by our product video highlighting our solution’s functionalities and benefits.

Easy and efficient handling and inspection of pallets

  • Robotic and camera technology of the highest quality
  • Easily operated by one person through Siemens HMI S7 touch panel
  • Easy overview of sorted quantity of pallets
  • Safe and stable handling of pallet top frames

Sorting and cleaning solution for intermediate layers

In Ferrum Group, we have designed a solution to handle the sorting and cleaning process of recyclable intermediates, typically cardboard or plastic. The aim of the solution is to minimize manual costs associated with sorting and cleaning as well as to ensure consistent quality of the intermediates.

The design can be adapted to specific needs, e.g. the solution can be designed to scan both sides of the trays or only one side. The solution can be delivered with or without a cleaning unit.

The capacity of the solution depends on the scanning requirements and the general condition of the trays. The estimated capacity for scanning, sorting and cleaning is around 800 trays per hour.

The sorting and cleaning line will typically be located parallel to the pallet sorter in order for easy operation by the same operator.

The layout illustrates a complete unit with scanning on both sides and cleaning unit.

Description of flow in the solution

  1. Pallets with intermediate layers are placed on the infeed conveyor and fed to the feeder station
  2. Intermediate layers are scanned on the top side
  3. Intermediate layer is fed to scanning station 2 where the intermediate layer is scanned from the underside (vacuum conveyor)
  4. Presorted intermediates are distributed according to the scanning procedure in two stations
  5. Approved trays are transported through the cleaning unit where both sides are cleaned
  6. Approved trays are stacked on a pallet
