The company is part of QBE Insurance Group Limited, a global insurance leader focused on helping solve unique customer risks worldwide.

"We are excited to be selected by NAU Country," said CEO of Agriculture Intelligence and Product Officer for Agroview Matthew Donovan. "We believe sampling methods are a thing of the past. Drone technology must be complimented by smart technology and Agroview drives business value. The guessing game is over."

Agroview employs aerial footage of crops captured by drones and its AI software to determine tree count, gaps, and precise measurements of each tree in the entire grove.

"At NAU Country, we have high standards for our technology partners. We have heavily invested in drone technology, but knew that with the right partner we could do even more - we could use flight imagery and machine learning to help automate tree counts." said Chief Marketing and Technology Officer Michael Deal at NAU Country. "We expect proven, accurate, and consistent results. In Agroview, we found all three of those qualities. We also see that the team behind Agroview is creating the next wave of proven technology that our industry needs."

"We understand that consistent and accurate results are at the core of what any insurer must have. We believe this partnership proves our results and we are excited to be able to add value to a well-established insurer such as NAU Country," said Donovan.

The ERT150 - Dorner's Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors

The next evolution in Dorner's Edge Roller Technology conveyor platform, the ERT®150, is ideal for small and light-load assembly automation, as well as medical and medical-device assembly application. The ERT platform is the only pallet conveyor of its kind available with an ISO Standard Class 4 rating for cleanroom applications. Earning the ISO Standard 14644-1 Class 4 rating means Dorner's ERT150 will conform and not contribute to the contamination of cleanrooms to those standards. As implied by its name, the ERT150 (Edge Roller Technology) uses rollers to move pallets through the conveyor smoothly with no friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyor's open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming. The ERT150 is suited to operate in cleanroom environments requiring a pallet handling conveyor. It is capable of zoning for no or low-back pressure accumulation and is ideal for automation assembly applications within industries including medical devices, electronics, consumer goods among others.
