The application LaseRCD - Rail Car Dumper ensures a contactless object detection and emptiness control system for rotary rail car dumper stations with "wagon tipplers" or "rail wagon unloaders". The measurement system for rail car unloading stations use 3D laser measurement technology with high accuracy.
System features: - Determination of unexpected objects on top of the material in wagons - Emptiness control after unloading process - Rugged construction type - Reliable results
Two 3D-Laser scanners (one per wagon) are mounted above the wagons and the dumper (unloading) station. The application software LaseRCD collects the data from the laser scanners and performs all needed calculations. Before tipping the wagons, the scanners measure the surface of the bulk material inside the wagons by swiveling the scan plane from one side of the wagon to the other. After the unloading procedure the scanners are swiveling back and measure the inner surface of each wagon. In both cases foreign objects or remaining are detected. Thus both a safe operation and an efficient unloading is ensured.
