Designed for hands-free sorting, it uses an industrial robot, controlled by the Neocortex “brain” software, to distinguish different types of pallets: blue, black, red and white wood, then separates them into homogeneous piles. A single operator activates the system through a simple interface and then moves on to other tasks, eliminating manual sorting. The throughput exceeds manual sorting, providing high accuracy, while generating real-time data measurement reports. In addition, the floor space is considerably reduced. A pallet quality inspection module is available as an upgrade.
Richard Kearns, Executive Vice President, Distribution and Logistics at AWG, said: “The Neocortex Pallet Sorter is essential to improving the efficiency of our distribution supply chain. The previous handling of the pallets required human judgment to sort the pallets. This is no longer the case. Universal’s software enabled greater efficiency, transparent real-time data measurements and reduced costs.
Neocortex has been in use for over a decade, with 280 million production cycles, handling almost every type of object that moves through supply chains – from manufactured components to consumer goods. Universal provides complete solutions for a multitude of applications, with engineering know-how from years of practical experience.
