Object Detection and Vibration Protection of Transported Goods with Long-Range Laser Distance Sensors
Gantry loaders are used in logistics warehouses for transporting large goods such as drive motors. In order to grip the parts safely and precisely, a long-range laser distance sensor with wintec is installed on the gripper unit. The sensor is stored in a robust stainless steel housing and measures the exact distance to the object. It can send additional information about vibrations or shocks that can occur during gripping to the machine controller by additionally evaluating the force. This allows this process to be monitored and readjusted during operation.
