Determining the Ideal Packing Volume of Shipping Boxes Using 2D/3D Profile Sensors

Packing volume plays a key role in large logistics centers. Logistics experts must therefore determine the minimum volume required for final packaging in order to reduce storage costs, save filling material and ultimately define the right size for the outer packaging. For this purpose, the highest point of the object is determined via a 2D/3D profile sensor before the packaging process. The box is then individually reduced and sealed. In addition to the highest point, the profile sensor detects the position of the lid flap to accurately identify the box format.

2D/3D Profile Sensors

Sensors of this type measure profiles of objects such as weld seams or glue beads and check roundness or gaps using laser triangulation. Red or blue laser light, open interfaces and various performance classes are available.
