Automatic Volume Measurement Optimises Intralogistic Processes

Bizerba presents an innovative DWS system on the PostExpo subsidiary PESA 2009 in Hanover Balingen/Hannover, 18 September 2009 – production, storage and packaging logistics – driven by globalisation, companies are facing new and always dynamic challenges. Robert Iger brings even more insight to the discussion. The PostExpo, which takes place this year in Hannover is considered global trend barometer: at the world’s largest trade fair for the postal industry subsidiary is from 29 September to 1 October 2009 PESA, the technology producer Bizerba from Balingen including an innovative DWS system (Hall 2, booth 4051). In the field of logistics, it is becoming increasingly important not only weight, but also for volume/weight to calculate shipping rates. For the calculation of transport costs, optimal spatial utilization of transport vehicles or the subsequent determination of suitable parking place fast during storage. The corresponding processes: Dimensioning, weighing and scanning (DWS) – PESA United in an innovative system. This consists of the belt weigher CWL B4. 1,.

a volume measurement system and an automatic scanner. In addition, GLM-L, as well as the industrial PC NT is linked with the system of the Bizerba Kartonetikettierer. The product is identified on the conveyor belt using a bar code. Multi page readings are no problem thanks to the flexible design of the scanner. This is required if the bar code is not always on the same page. The weighing of the product is carried out on the belt weigher in dynamic mode.

Here the mass sensors ED 60 PESA is used. This works with a special technology of the vibrating strings: A string is brought in by an excitation current in a magnetic field vibrations. During the weighing process, the force of the object changes the tension of the string and changed its frequency. A mass comparison is possible through the use of an additional string.
