Fast Pallet Dimensioning with palletcube

The new generation of the palletcube

 

The new generation of the palletcube volume measuring system determines the volume of a pallet in seconds. The application is very versatile thanks to the industry-safe hardware and flexible mounting options, either fixed to the warehouse ceiling or free-standing by means of a mounting unit/carrier freely accessible from three sides.
The palletcube volume measuring system is used in the incoming goods area to determine the optimum storage location, in the outgoing goods area to plan the loading space or determine the best forwarder, as well as to transfer the data to the transport service provider via the shipping system and documents.
Depending on the system configuration, it’s possible to measure loads ranging from half pallets to industrial pallets.
Flexible interfaces (such as SOAP, REST, etc.) and 3D-data export allow a seamless integration into existing processes.
The palletcube volume measurement system is expected to be available in 2021.

PALLET DIMENSIONER palletcube

The pallet dimensioner palletcube is a system to measure and calculate the dimensions of loaded pallets. Due to the compact design, the entire construction only has a dimension of 215 by 215 centimeters. The measuring object is placed in a defined measuring area (e.g. floor scales). After that it will be captured and measured from all sides by using the 5 integrated 3D ToF sensors. The system can either be triggered by an integrated user interface or various flexible interfaces. As an optional extension, multiple IP cameras can be mounted to the palletcube to photo document the measuring object.

ALL-IN-ONE SYSTEM /
INTEGRATED INDUSTRIAL PC & ELECTRONICS

The palletcube contains all hardware and electronic components required for measurement. An industrial PC with Microsoft Windows 10 Enterprise IoT is also integrated. This safe kiosk mode in combination with a centralized communication thus results in a closed secured system. This significantly increases the security of the system and at the same time reduces any communication overhead.

HIGH SPEED 360° DIMENSIONING

The pallet dimensioner palletcube outlines the measuring object using the integrated ToF-Cameras. The resulting 3D-Informations will be interpreted, so the dimensions can be calculated considering the position. The entire process only takes a few seconds.

INTEGRATED SOFTWARE /
FLEXIBLE INTERFACES

The palletcube comes with two trigger options – through a grafical user interface or an communication service for external control. Both options have a variety of flexible and customizable interfaces available e.g. SOAP, REST, SAP/RFC, etc.

DEFINED MEASURING AREA
(e.g. FLOOR SCALE)

The measuring area in which the measuring object must be placed is located directly below the system. The boundary can be defined in the calibration process. This enables the use of e.g. a floor scale as a measuring area.

MAINTENANCE FREE SYSTEM /
DESIGNED FOR CONTINUOUS OPERATION

Since the construction of the palletcube is not based on moving / mechanical components, there is no frequent nor periodical maintenance effort, e.g. Lubrication of bearings, adjustment of drive trains, etc. All palletcube components were designed exclusively for industrial use. The working temperature range is therefore perfectly designed for operation in warehouses. A reliable process can thus be guaranteed.

HIGH-END 3D-TOF-CAMERAS

The maintenance-free high-end 3D ToF sensors can cover 360° of the measuring area. They operate without lasers or mechanically swiveling mirrors, but in the infrared spectrum. They are therefore not subject to any laser protection class. The sensors create several 3D images with different exposure times in a fraction of a second.

INSTALLATION OPTION I:
STAND MOUNT

Since the base has only one reference point to the floor, there is always free passage for forklifts and other industrial trucks. The stand can be mounted with 60 cm distance to a wall. The dimensions of the system including the stand are 350 x 215 x 370cm (LxBxH). The height is variable. A minimum distance to the measuring object of only 1 meter must be guaranteed.

INSTALLATION OPTION II:
ADJUSTABLE CEILING MOUNT

The ceiling mount consists of either clamping devices for beams (e.g. I-beam, T-beam or double tee ) or direct mounting devices for solid (concrete) ceilings. The mount can be flexibly adjusted in L, W, H. The devices are also freely adjustable at an inclination angle of -90 ° to 90 °. The dimensions of the system including the ceiling mount are 350 x 215 x 370cm (LxBxH). The height of the system including the ceiling bracket is variable, but at least 70cm. A minimum distance to the measuring object of only 1 meter must be guaranteed.
