LaseTPC - Truck Positioning Crane

Published in Port Logistics

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.

LaseCPT - Coil Positioning Trailer

Published in Steel Logistics

Automatic coil loading and unloading with a laser position system on the storage yard.

System features:

  • Automatic coil admission and deposition
  • Precise coil position and circumferential measurement
  • Shallow pit measurement
  • Simply expandable
  • Profibus Interface

Short description:
The measurement system LaseCPT - Coil Positioning Trailer consists of a LASE 2000D Laser Scanner and LASE Control Unit (LCU) for the evaluation of the laser data. The components are installed on the crane and additionally the distance data submitted by a Laser Distance Meter are applied for the crane and trolley drive. With this data a 3-dimensional image of the scenery on the trailer is produced. The results of the coil position and circumferential measurement are transmitted via Profibus Interface to the supervisory crane PLC host.
