Coil measurement system for process cranes at German steel manufacturer

(LASE GmbH) (Wesel, 11.07.2019) Together with PBI GmbH, LASE performed the commissioning of a fully comprehensive coil measurement system for a new process crane in a German steel plant. Herein three systems have been implemented in total, which not only measure dimensions and positions of coils in the storage yard, but also are responsible for an automated pick and drop of coils both on trailers (transport racks) and on rail wagons. The customer company, a German steel manufacturer, has built a new process crane in a hall, where coils are handled for the automated pick and drop in the yard. Within the implementation LASE has been working together with the German plant and machinery installer PBI GmbH, who has been responsible for the mounting of the laser hardware. For the measurement of the current coil positions in the different locations inside the hall, three different system applications have been commissioned…

New system for detection of unremoved container cones at PNC Busan Port

(LASE GmbH) (Wesel, 05.08.2019) New system for detection of unremoved container cones by LASE at PNC Busan Port in South Korea LASE unveils the new application LaseUCD - Unremoved Cone Detection, which detects whether container cones (twistlocks) are still connected to the container while being lifted up from terminal chassis by RMG or RTG cranes before they are moved into the yard. In addition the system also detects open doors of containers. After successful implementation at PNC Busan Port in South Korea, LASE has been awarded with the order of 69 systems to enhance the safety in this terminal. The system is highly recommended for automated yards, where crane drivers do not need to observe the process anymore. In container terminals it is quite a common problem that container cones are not completely taken out and stay attached to the container after being unloaded from the vessel. In total more…

Information Paper - Eyes for automated container- and process cranes

(LASE GmbH) (Wesel, 06.03.2019) The wave of automation keeps moving! More and more operators of sea- and intermodal ports or in steel plants have started automating their cranes entirely. In order to perform this task without humans, the cranes need eyes by applying 2D- and 3D laser scanners. These sensors and an analogue evaluation of the measurement data by application-specific software allow an automated transshipment of containers, coils, slabs or even scrap metal. Different examples about the functionality of the measurement systems and solutions are shown in this paper. Technology Area - 2D- and 3D laser scanners The main topic within this paper is called “The eyes for automated container- and process cranes”, which is based on two- and three-dimensional laser technology. It depends on the individual application, if the measurement of the objects is undertaken two- or three-dimensionally. A 2D laser scanner consists of a laser source and a…

3D truck volume measurement systems for Russian road construction company TSM

(LASE GmbH) (Wesel, 06.03.2019) For the exact 3D load volume measurement of dump trucks LASE and his Russian distribution partner FEST successfully installed the application LaseTVM-3D for the Russian road construction company Transstroymekhanizatsiya (TSM). The turnkey system is used to measure raw materials like sand and road metal for the construction of the motorway M4 “Don” in the Voronezh area in South-Western Russia. By the combination of 3D laser scanners, IP-cameras and traffic lights an automated process for the accurate payload measurement is ensured, which prevents load differences. Further features like license plate recognition and load area imaging allows a fully comprehensive and transparent data handling within this set-up.

Recent lawsuit should lead to change of thinking in truck lifting prevention

(LASE GmbH) (Wesel, 16.08.2018) Recent lawsuit should lead terminal operators to a change of thinking in truck lifting prevention Truck liftings occur when any twistlock is jammed or the container is lifted still attached to its road truck trailer and cause lifts into dangerous heights. Those incidents are not uncommon in container terminals and recently South Carolina Ports Authority was appealing a jury’s award of damages of US $ 300.000 to a truck driver who was injured in a truck lifting accident in Charleston six years ago. Some terminals already started to implement truck lifting prevention systems. Uncertainty could come up for comparable cases in the past and even more for the future because truck lifting accidents continue to be problem. But some terminals already installed truck lifting prevention systems as a safety feature in their terminals. The installation of a truck lifting prevention system is quite simple. Generally it…
