  • Low maintenance effort due to stable app hardware combination
  • Easy integration on industrial trucks

Overview

The storage and removal of loads using industrial trucks requires the precise detection of storage spaces and pallet, especially at great heights. For an automated manned forklift truck to correctly pick up and transport a pallet, for example, it must precisely detect the pallet pockets. The Pallet Pocket Detection SensorApp provides the data required to do this. It runs directly on the Visionary-T AP 3D vision sensor from SICK. The measured values required to pick up the pallet are pre-processed and evaluated on the sensor, then transmitted to the control of the automated manned forklift truck. The Pallet Pocket Detection SensorApp is based on SICK AppSpace and can be loaded on the sensor as a complete, application-specific Key App.

Advantages

Extend the functionality of your Visionary-T AP 3D vision camera with SICK SensorApps.

Automated detection of pallet pockets of nearly any common pallet type.

Short pallet pick-up processes times increase the efficiency of industrial trucks in logistics.

Easy integration of sensor and app in industrial trucks.

The Pallet Pocket Detection SensorApp from SICK enables reliable position determination of pallets. At the same time, the app reduces the amount of maintenance work needed. Pallet Pocket Detection is not only well-suited for new industrial trucks, but also as a simple retrofitting solution for those already in use.
