LaseCDI - Container Damage Inspection

In order to enhance the degree of automation in ports and terminals, the game-changing application LaseCDI - Container Damage Inspection has been developed to enable the automatic detection of damage to containers without disturbing the workflow.

The examination of the container surfaces at gate operating systems (roofs, side and end walls) by means of laser technology is combined with OCR container recognition and high resolution imaging to actively detect different kinds of damage (bulges, dents, tears, holes, etc.) in containers.

With a scan frequency of 100 Hz and an angle resolution of 0.5°, the data obtained by the laser scanner is forwarded to dedicated application software, which produces an intelligent profile image of the container. The detected damage category, extent and location are displayed to the operator. The system is able to work under harsh environmental conditions with a temperature range of -30° to +50° C to ensure continuous operation.
