Dimension measurement on conveyor belt
Hungarian manufacturing plant of a company producing automotive components and electric drives.
How does it works?
After reading the pallet ID, a pallet arriving on a conveyor track to the measurement zone of the dimension meter is turned 90 degrees by a turntable while Gapidea's dimensional measuring sensors provide a detailed three-dimensional image of the material under test.
When evaluating the point cloud, our software measures the required parameters: pallet and pallet size separately, total height of the pallet, the loaded material hanging off the pallet, last but not least the exact dimensions and location of the fork pockets and a camera system to monitor their integrity.
The data packet generated during the measurement is automatically stored in the database, from where it can be easily retrieved at any time, even remotely via network communication. Weight data is also immediately available when used with in-transit scales.
