LASE has released a laser-based volume measurement system to quickly measure wagons and open doors in the front or back of train load out stations.
The system consists of up to six LASE 2D laser scanners that communicate with the LASE system application software and continuously record measurement data.
Two of these 2D laser scanners are placed in front of the train loading/unloading station centered above the tracks to measure the volume of each wagon.
Two more are then positioned laterally next to the track and measure the walls of the wagons in horizontal scan planes, as well as the speed and positions of the wagons.
Another two 2D laser scanners are placed behind the train loading/unloading station to measure the respective fill level or checks whether the wagon has been completely emptied.
