LASE provides truck volume measurement system for M11 motorway project in Russia

(LASE GmbH) (Wesel, 20.05.2017) In order to measure the exact loading volume of dump trucks LASE implemented the application LaseTVM on a road construction site for the customer EuroTransStroy in St. Petersburg, Russia. The laser-based measurement system determines the exact volume of purchased bulk materials like sand and crushed stones with highest accuracy to prevent load differences. Furthermore the recognition of the license plates and the load area for a fully comprehensive and transparent data handling are another features within this implementation. EuroTransStroy is one of the biggest road construction companies in Russia and is involved in the road extension of the motorway M11 Moscow-Saint Petersburg, which should be finished until the beginning of the 2018 FIFA World Cup. The total length of this alternative connection for the easing of traffic is about 684 km and here the last 38 km will be prepared. While the construction phase lots of…

LASE delivers to Vale’s world’s biggest mining project at S11D Complex in Brazil

(LASE GmbH) (Wesel, 21.03.2017) LASE has provided the delivery of 15 LaseBVC conveyor belt measuring systems to history’s biggest iron ore mining project by Vale in the S11D Complex in North Brazil.

The LaseLCPS - Load Collision Prevention System is set to provide more safety and enhance productivity for every crane operation, whether it is being utilized on RTG, RMG or STS cranes. The specific version LaseLCPS-3D-2D also has been qualified for Performance Level D - Cat. 3 by the German BG (Employers' Liability Insurance Association) recently. Performance Levels to EN ISO 13849-1 define the reliability how a control system complies with safety functions and how it is protected against malfunctions. By reaching one of the highest parameters within the qualification process, the application LaseLCPS-3D-2D confirms its high development status and meets current requirements on…

LASE launches LaseSPC for exact straddle carrier positioning

16.03.2017 // LASE launches “LaseSPC” for exact straddle carrier positioning LASE launches its new product “LaseSPC - Straddle (Carrier) Positioning Crane” for the exact positioning of straddle/van carriers (SC) under STS cranes. Besides to other positioning systems for trucks and AGVs this product development completes the offer of applications for positioning tasks under STS-Cranes. By the development of this easily retrofittable application, LASE offers laser-based positioning systems for all horizontal modes of transport now. The application LaseSPC - Straddle Positioning Crane is a 2D measurement system consisting of two 2D laser scanners (LASE 2000D Series) mounted on the water and landside sill beam. The straddle carriers are equipped with reference markers on all four legs and after the straddle carrier is under or approaches the crane, the measurement system detects them and calculates the exact position of the SC. By the use of LED displays the straddle carrier driver receives…

Qualification by German BG for Performance Level d Cat. 3 for LaseLCPS-3D-2D

20.02.2017 // Qualification by German BG for Performance Level d Cat. 3 for LaseLCPS-3D-2D The product LaseLCPS-3D-2D (Load Collision Prevention System -3D-2D) has been qualified for the Performance Level D - Category 3 by the German BG (Employers' Liability Insurance Association). The certification by this statutory institution sets a milestone in the product development and meets today’s requirements on Performance Levels for safety standards in the port industry. The Performance Levels to EN ISO 13849-1 are parameters for the reliability how a control system complies with safety functions. By reaching one of the highest parameters, the application LaseLCPS-3D-2D confirms its high development status and also the acceptance on the market. In regards to safety it is important to run systems which have a reliable protection against malfunctions. This specific version of the application LaseLCPS-3D-2D - Load Collision Prevention is a combined 3D/2D laser measurement system consisting of each one 2D-…

Further order of Korean port for LaseTLP at eight RMG cranes

10.12.2016 // Further order of Korean port for LaseTLP at eight RMG cranes LASE received an order from another Korean port for the installation of LaseTLP (Truck Lifting Prevention) at in total eight RMG cranes. One year before, together with the successful product release, a Korean port already has ordered this safety-related system for container operations in truck lanes. By the implementation of LaseTLP - Truck Lifting Prevention - hoist movements will be interrupted immediately when the laser measurement system detects a lifted container chassis at even 100 mm. It is not unusual that truck-trailers are lifted up by the crane hoist when one or more twistlocks are still locked or not completely loosened. In order to prevent such accidents this system detects the lifting of the trailer at the earliest stage. Such incidents of lifted container chassis or trucks are not harmless and can lead to severe injuries as…

Noise reduced container loading through Soft Landing in Intermodal Terminal WienCont

10.12.2016 // For good neighbourliness – noise reduced container loading through Soft Landing in Intermodal Terminal WienCont Together with the Austrian crane manufacturer Hans Künz GmbH, LASE successfully implemented the application LaseLCPS-2D (Load Collision Prevention System) for two crane systems at the Intermodal Terminal WienCont in Vienna, Austria. It is the one of the biggest container terminals for inland ports in Europe, where approx. 200.000 containers are handled annually. By the installation of this laser measurement system containers can be picked safely and noise reduced (without any collision) as well as dropped “softly”. The Intermodal Terminal in Vienna (Austria) is one of most important hubs for the national and international flow of goods. Austrian crane manufacturer Hans Künz GmbH has installed the modern crane systems on this site.
