The Sick Bulkscan system uses the LMS series area scanner to get a real-time volume profile of conveyed bulk materials while they are in motion. This makes it possible to rely on mass as well as weight in the packaging process.

Full Description

The DWS Pallet track and trace system from Sick calculates actual freight volume based on the values for volume and weight as provided by the VMS volumetric scanner and a scale. A handheld barcode scanner is used to scan in the pallet ID. The DWS generates income for freight service providers by correcting underestimated dimensional volume, and cuts costs for companies shipping product by allowing them to correctly calculate and pass on shipping costs.

Missing Case Detection on Pallet

In warehouse applications where pallets are stacked one on top of the other it is critical to have a complete row of cases to support the pallet above. To verify that the row was complete, Sensors Integration used the Sick TIM551 laser scanner to look at slices of the pallet as it passed underneath.

Stockpile Volume with Laser Scanners

The irregularity of a stockpile makes it difficult to accurately calculate the volume of bulk materials stored. The LMS151 and LMS511 laser scanners, which have been classified with IP67 enclosure rating for outdoor applications, generate an accurate 3D profile of the stockpile as it travels on a stacker or a reclaimer.
