LaseAFM - Automatic Freight Measurement

The system LaseAFM-4 (Automatic Freight Measurement) for the automatic and multi-dimensional freight measurement delivers highly accurate measurement data for freight forwarders and ensures higher transperency as well assaving of time in transshipment stations. By the automatic detection of the volume, dimension, weight, freight-ID and image data, manual measurements and transcription errors are excluded within the freight documentation process.

The measurement sequence - easy and accurate:

  1. Freight is placed in measuring station
  2. Freight-ID is scanned by hand-held scanner
  3. Automatic initiation of the measurement process
  4. Freight volume measurement by 3D laser scanners
  5. Freight weight measurement by weighing system
  6. Imaga data acquisition by HD camera
  7. Data transfer to WMS-/ERP-System

With the use of state-of-the-art 3D-Laser scanners (mounted at the four portal corners) LaseAFM-4 measures all dimensions with highest accuracy. The measurement process starts at the push of a button at the operator terminal or by scanning the freight-ID (if Module I - Ident is applied). Even during the 3D-Laser measurement also HD pictures of the freight object are taken for comprehensive consignment information. The complete freight measurement procedure only takes a few seconds and all detected freight information is forwarded to the warehouse management system (WMS). A further module for the generation of weight measurement data (Module W - Weight) can be added optionally.

The accurate and automatic 3D-Laser volume measurement combined with the freight weight generate reliable freight data and avoid wrong freight rating. Nowadays false data or faulty transcriptions of manually recorded freight data cause significant financial losses. By using our accurate and automatic measurement system LaseAFM-4 the consignor and carrier stay toghether as business partners without burdening their good relation through faulty freight data.
