Introducing RoboScan

We are pleased to announce that after 9 months of R&D, customer input and much testing, RoboScan is scheduled to begin processing finished good pallets next month. What is RoboScan you ask? RoboScan is a machine that automatically scans the case labels on a pallet of finished good products and then creates a detailed pallet file and pallet label. RoboScan controls the conveyor movement of the pallets into the scan area, scans the pallet using four robotic arms and four cameras in under 30 seconds, then moves the pallet out of the scan area to the next process, which is typically shrink wrap. 

RoboScan is fully integrated with our R8 Inventory Management system, with the initial version targeted for existing CFS customers that have robotically stacked, non-nested pallets. Click on the link below to see a video of our RoboScan prototype version in action. Please contact CFS if you would like more information.

Company Spotlight: CFS Development Team

The CFS development team has been cranking out new products and updates for years, and 2020 was no exception. Over the past year products like R8, PT and ACS received additional functionality, while our Q application was upgraded and received a new front end and database platform refresh. The team was also involved in many upgrades throughout the year and deployed numerous patches to help our customers meet their business needs. 

They are “the person behind the curtain” and don’t get the recognition that they deserve for all of their effort and hard work that goes into developing the many valuable CFS applications that companies depend on. We know that our customers very much appreciate the work that they do, and we look forward to the places the team will help take our CFS solutions in 2021 and beyond.
