LaseTPC - Truck Positioning Crane

Truck positioning and container position determination for STS cranes: 3D laser measurement technology is applied in this system.

System features:

  • 3D-Position measurement of Containers, Trailers or AGVs

  • Exact truck positioning by state-of-the-art laser technology
  • Useable for single or double spreader operations
  • Accelerated container transshipment
  • Supports fully automated container handling
  • Higher safety by reduced labor activiy below the crane
  • Savings in labor costs
  • Usable for STS, aRMG, RMG and RTG

Short description:

The measurement system LaseTPC - Truck Positioning Crane consists of two 3D-laser scanners and a LASE Control Unit (LCU). The two LASE 3000D are mounted on both sides of the crane transversal girder and the scenery in the portal is measured 3-dimensionally. The position of the truck, trailer, AGV or container on the vehicles as well as on the floor can be determined.

This system is particularly important for the double or triple spreader operation – the crane driver otherwise needs considerably more time to get the spreader on the container.
