Face Consultants Ltd (part of the CoGri Group of companies) are leading the way in floor flatness testing for robotics, with the development of a laser guided Profileograph for checking surface regularity, essential for robotic systems.
The ‘Face All in One Profileograph’ measures 6 properties of floor flatness within a single pass along the floor. Additional auxiliary attachments can be used to measure TR34 DM, EN 15620:2008*, DIN 15185, VDMA, FEM and the ACI F min surface regularity specifications.
Face Consultants continue to lead the way in floor flatness testing technology and are at the forefront of testing for Goods to Person Robotics. We provide testing services for the ever-increasing number of E-commerce warehouse fulfilment centres around the globe using Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMR’s), or automated storage and retrieval systems (ASRS).
We have been instrumental in developing floor flatness standards and methods of compliance for well-known technologies such as Very Narrow Aisle operations. More recently however, the ongoing upsurge in internet shopping means that our expertise has been called upon by both the Robotics manufacturers and the E-commerce giants who use them.
By understanding the working parameters of the robotics equipment, Face Consultants are able to provide a set of clearly specified working performance characteristics to the construction industry. These defined characteristics can then be followed and delivered; enabling optimum robotics performance in E-commerce warehouses and fulfilment centres when increased efficiency and productivity has never been needed more.
Where possible we still try to embrace current standards that are understood and methods of testing that exist, but a clear method of compliance checking is being drafted so there are no ambiguities or misunderstandings by all the stakeholders involved.* Replaced 2021. New version has no flatness requirement.
