In order to enhance the degree of automation in ports and terminals, the Visy and LASE product series has been developed to enable the automatic detection of damage to containers without disturbing the workflow.
The two companies will showcase their new joint developments at this year’s TOC Europe exhibition.
The product series can be used in conjunction with gate operating systems and crane OCR Systems. The examination of the container surfaces (roofs, side and end walls) by means of laser technology is combined with OCR container recognition and high resolution imaging to actively detect different kinds of damage (bulges, dents, tears, holes, etc.) in containers.
