Volume measurement of singulated, irregularly shaped objects

SICK provides volume measurement solutions for automated determination of freight charges on belts with bulk goods. These systems enable CEP operators to significantly increase the throughput of "non-conveyable” goods. VMS530-IDS (Irregular Dimension System) allows for determining the volume of irregularly shaped, non-touching items. With VMS530-NSDS (Non-Singulated Dimensioning System), non-singulated streams of cubic items can be effectively measured.
