Dimensioning On-The-Fly Speeds Parcel Processing

To ensure timely delivery, packages must be quickly processed. Dimensioning on-the-fly, as parcels move across conveyors, help improve delivery times and lower shipping costs. Precise measurement data must be captured to fully benefit shippers.

Through efforts shared between Engineering Innovation and LMI Technologies, a provider of 3D sensor technology, a solution is created that reliably captures dimensions while packages are in motion.

The Chameleon Parcel Processing Solution is able to handle between 1,200 and 4,000 pieces per hour. To ensure the process is reliable and efficient, the Chameleon utilizes a LMI Gocator 2180 3D Laser Line Profile Sensor to measure needed dimensions. Collaboratively, LMI Technology has published a case study based on the Chameleon’s use in the field with their sensor … (click to read more)
