- Are you transporting or handling baggage, cardboards or other goods?
- Do you consign and store those goods, too?
- All that with minimum required space and maximum reliability?
- And with a maximum level of automation?
Then you are faced with approximately the same questions as we are in automated baggage loading and unloading:
- How to localise the target objects?
- How to record those object's form and dimensions most reliable and exact?
- How is the design of the used stockyards?
Due to our own need we developed the ABLE-G volume analysis system and the ABLE-F topography measurement system at Grenzebach Automation, which could be interesting for your measuring duties.
Static volume analysis system ABLE-G
ABLE-G is an optical measuring system for all three-dimensional objects, as luggage, different cardboard sizes or even every imaginable good.
ABLE-G is based on the laser scanning technology. By moving scanners along the measuring area or moving the target objects through the measuring area, the objects dimensions get measured and are put into digital, three-dimensional views of the object.
ABLE-G not only detects length, width and height but even its smallest surrounding cuboid (bounding box) and the capacities of the object and its bounding box. Due to that ABLE-G is able to identify out sticking parts of the objects, such as luggage tags, to reduce the computed dimensions to a minimum. ABLE-G additionally detects orientation and position.
Supervision of handling tasks (e.g. automated positioning of robotic systems)
Supervision of transportation tasks (e.g. detection of object position, geometry addicted process tasks)
Three-dimensional topography measuring system ABLE-F
ABLE-F allows the three-dimensional measuring of any surface, such as goods (e.g. luggage) packed in containers, on carts or on pallets.
Similar to ABLE-G, ABLE-F is based on the laser scanning technology. By moving scanners over the measuring area the topography of the measuring object is detected and digital reproduced for the further use in computer applications.
With ABLE-F it is therefore possible to automate any process of palletising or loading, to control movements in automated handling processes or simply gain information about the topography of a loaded container or pallet.
