LaseRCD - Rotary Car Dumper

Contactless object detection and emptiness control system for rotary railcar dumper station or "wagon tipplers".

System features:

  • Determination of unexpected objects on top of the material in wagons
  • Emptiness control after unloading process
  • Rugged construction type
  • Reliable results

Short description:

Two 3D-Laser scanners (one per wagon) are mounted above the wagons and the rail dumper. The application LaseRCD - Rotary Railcar Dumper collects the scanner data and performs all needed calculations. Before tipping the wagons, the scanners measure the surface of the bulk material inside the wagons by swiveling the scan plane from one side of the wagon to the other. After the unloading procedure the scanners are swiveling back and measure the inner surface of each waggon.
