Track and trace systems

Your Benefits

  • Quick and efficient dimensioning thanks to dynamic inline object measurement
  • Measures dimensions of very large objects
  • Reliable measurement of objects with black, foil-wrapped or strongly reflective surfaces, regardless of the object shape
  • High system availability thanks to the redundant system construction (optional)
  • Reduction in operating costs thanks to short MTTR
  • Range of options: Either as stand-alone solution or extended with a scanning station, scale and/or IP camera


The VMS6x00/7x00 track and trace system easily solves challenging applications to dimension objects and determine their exact position. The system can be used on different conveyor systems and is perfectly suited for dynamic and reliable measurement of large objects as well as black, foil-wrapped or strongly reflective objects. To do so, several laser-based LMS500 measuring units determine the smallest enveloping box of the object, regardless of its shape. The modular setup of the track and trace system ensures compatibility with existing solutions from SICK and enables adaptations to customer-specific applications.
