Exploring new markets: LaseAFM - Automatic Freight Measurement enters the Logistics industry

(LASE GmbH) (Wesel, 30.01.2018) On schedule LASE is proud to present a whole new system for 3D freight measurement in our product range, which is also serving a totally new market. LaseAFM-4 (Automatic Freight Measurement) is built for the Logistics industry resp. for the transportation of oversized cargo and comprises several features such as automatic 3D-volume and weight measurement, freight identification and HD camera imaging. All processed data are sent to the WMS-/ERP-System then. The new system LaseAFM-4 - Automatic Freight Measurement has been built for freight forwarders who are specialized in transporting oversized or bulky cargo and need such systems in their transshipment stations. Thanks to this multi-dimensional measuring system, manual measurements, notes or weighing can be realised automatically now. Thus faulty measurements or loading difficulties belong to the past. LaseAFM-4 detects all relevant data with highest accuracy by using state-of-the-art 3D-Laser scanners (attached at all four portal corners),…

Successful start-up of 8 LaseTLP systems for Truck Lifting Prevention at SNCT Incheon, South Korea

(LASE GmbH) (Wesel, 30.01.2018) The system LaseTLP for Truck Lifting Prevention has been commissioned at overall 8 ARMG cranes in the finally prepared NewPort at SNCT (Sun Kwang Container Terminal) in Incheon, South Korea. In this automated Asian hub highly accurate 2D-Laser scanners (in direction to the truck lane) detect truck liftings, which occur when any twistlock is locked or jammed, before the lifting from a truck has begun. Two 2D-Laser scanners out of the LASE 2000D-11x Series are mounted on the side of the gantry with a vertical scan plane, whereby the general difficulty of measuring above/through a fence with a height of 1,0 m could be solved – by using 2 x 2D-Laser scanner. The mounting position of both laser scanners is in the middle of the crane in a height of approx. 1,5 m facing the truck lane. In the case that a truck is in front…

Safe Traffic Control for Straddle Carrier operations

Straddle Carriers are one of the most simple but also effective systems to handle container load. They can easily be managed and have a high flexibility because they can be sent to nearly every corner of the terminal. Container transport can be done independent from the STS or Yard Crane operation and they can also be the stacking machines for the Yard. Nevertheless, high flexibility can only be managed by ensuring high safety in the operation area. The elimination of human error is the main benefit and leads to high improvement in workplace safety by applying an assistance system for Straddle Carrier drivers - SAFE TRAFFIC CONTROL. The product LaseSPC - Straddle Carrier Positioning Crane is a 2D measurement system for exact Straddle Carrier positioning under STS cranes and is applicable for multi-lane operations with up to two Straddle Carriers simultaneously. The system controls the traffic under the crane to…

High market demand for LaseTLP - Truck Lifting Prevention in different international ports

(LASE GmbH) (Wesel, 20.11.2017) The safety application LaseTLP generated a high demand in different international ports in the last quarter, especially in Asian hubs. The system helps to prevent trailer lifting, which occurs when any twistlock is locked or jammed before RTG/RMG operation. Laser scanners in direction to the truck lane are able to detect liftings when even only one twistlock is locked. More information about the application LaseTLP can be found on the product page here...

Slab positioning system at automatic slab cranes from Danieli

(LASE GmbH) (Wesel, 20.11.2017) LASE has delivered both a slab position and size measurement system to the Italian manufacturer Danieli Centro Cranes for the automatic operation of a slab crane. The system consists of 4 laser scanners attached to the crane trolley and measure slabs under the tong from all different sides. The customer, a big steel manufacturer, can now realise very accurate pick and drop operations. Data about the slab dimension and position are sent by Ethernet to the SPS. Within this installation the measurement system LaseSPY - Slab Positioning Yard consists of four laser scanners out of the LASE 2000D-11x Series attached to the crane trolley. The laser scanners measure from all different sides onto the slab, which hangs under the tong. The pick and drop position of the slab is determined (in cooperation with a warehouse management system - WMS) and furthermore the width, length and number…

Several new orders for LaseLCPS on RTG, RMG and STS cranes

Several new orders for the crane driver assistance system LaseLCPS at RTG, RMG and STS LASE has received several orders for LaseLCPS systems (Load Collision Prevention System) to be equipped on RTG, RMG and also STS cranes in different ports worldwide. All systems, which have been ordered in the last months, are to be delivered both until the end of 2017 and after the turn of the year. Also the certified version LaseLCPS-3D-2D is set to provide more safety and efficiency in container handling. More information about the different application versions of LaseLCPS for RMG, RTG and STS cranes can be found on the product page here...

Further truck volume measurement system for Central Ring Road construction in Moscow

(LASE GmbH) (Wesel, 20.11.2017) For the road works of a further huge central ring motorway around Moscow (Russia), the laser-based measurement system LaseTVM is in use at several different stations along the construction site. The task is to measure the accurate volume of trucks, which deliver bulk materials like sand or crushed stones. The customer, a huge Russian road construction company, is having a reliable control system against weight manipulations and overpayment now. The application LaseTVM is installed at three different checkpoints on a road construction sitewhich covers a distance of 105 around the city region of Moscow. While the construction phase lots of bulk material like sand or crushed stones need to be used for the base course of the asphalt, which are purchased by the construction company. For the accurate account of the used bulk material a highly exact volume measurement system for the dump trucks was demanded…

Important customer information - System conversion for service requests

Dear customer, due to customization of our processes through the years, we had to implement a system conversion. The aim of this conversion step is a reduction of repair cycle times as well as a detailed information transmission. This is why we ask you to kindly use the newly integrated Online Service-Application-Form on our company website for all upcoming service requests from now onwards: http://lase.de/en/service

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.
