Track and trace systems

When the actual size matters

Your Benefits

  • Increased throughput thanks to non-contact, dynamic measurement of objects virtually regardless of their shape
  • Optimizes material handling processes and the use of vehicle and storage capacities
  • Increased sales thanks to validated revenue recovery of freight costs
  • Material flow optimization through inline object measurement
  • Increased system availability and reduction in operating costs thanks to short MTTR
  • Time savings thanks to easy installation with maximum modularity
  • Range of options: stand-alone solution or in combination with reading station and weighing technology


When the actual size matters

The VMS4200/5200 track and trace system is ideal for challenging applications in the field of non-contact dynamic measurement and position determination for objects on a diverse range of conveyor systems. The smallest cuboid that fully encloses the object is precisely determined using two laser-based measuring heads, virtually regardless of the shape of the object. With the certified system variant, the dimension data can be used for billing purposes. The SIM2000 system controller makes it possible to separate metrologically relevant software from application-specific software. The modular system construction ensures compatibility with existing solutions from SICK and enables adaptations to customer-specific applications.
