Automated 3D Volume Measurement and Defect Detection

VOLUMEChd measures objects fully automatic

VOLUMEChd measures objects fully automatic

Every millimeter counts: VOLUMEChd measures the volume of any moving object in the field of intralogistics.

The new VOLUMEChd 3D volume measurement system from VITRONIC precisely measures rectangular and irregularly shaped objects in the field of intralogistics and reliably detects defects on boxes. This makes it possible, for example, to automate invoicing, optimize the utilization of transport fleets and avoid warehouse technology malfunctions.

Developed by VITRONIC, the VOLUMEChd 3D volume measurement system combines innovative laser and camera technology in a highly precise and reliable end-to-end solution. VOLUMEChd measures the volume of both rectangular and irregularly shaped objects as they are transported by conveyor belts and sorters. High transport speeds of up to 3 m/s ensure optimum throughput rates.

VOLUMEChd makes it possible to reliably measure packages up to a maximum size of 1,000 x 1,000 x 2,500 mm (HxWxL). Thanks to the unique camera-based laser measurement, it is even possible to reliably determine the volume of very small and extremely flat objects – even including dark objects. A high measurement accuracy of 5 x 5 x 5 mm for rectangular objects and 10 x 10 x 10 mm for other objects is achieved.

In addition to volume measurement, the system also detects defects on boxes, such as bulges and dents, on five object sides. This prevents malfunctioning of automated warehouse technology and reductions in throughput when storing boxes in automated high-bay warehouses, for example.

VOLUMEChd can be used as a standalone solution or as an integrated part of VIPAC Auto-ID systems. As there are no moving parts, the solution is entirely maintenance free.

Process optimization through precise volume data
When working with VOLUMEChd, securely stored data that cannot be manipulated can be used to automatically create invoices and customer parcel information can be compared with the measured data. The volume data can also be used as a basis for calculating transport capacities and optimizing vehicle loads and route planning. It can furthermore be used to generate statistics and improve internal goods flows, as well as to check company price structures and logistics processes.

The new VOLUMEChd was already exhibited at the CeMAT in Hanover from May 19-23, 2014, where it received great interest from trade visitors. The new product video on YouTube provides a clear overview of the system’s key performance features and benefits.
