Wingfield and LASE partner on next generation load volume scanner solution

With the introduction of WingScan Advanced LiDAR technology to its existing offering, Wingfield Scale & Measure can track inventory no matter how it moves through an operation, the company claims.

Tracking material as it moves is critical to understanding production rates and reconciling inventory to sales, with Wingfield saying it provides solutions at every step in the inventory life cycle.

According to Wingfield, WingScan allows businesses to:

  • Gain confidence in their numbers, pre-inventory, using WingScan to establish the quantitative value of bulk material traveling from the source of production on conveyor belts;
  • Use Wingfield’s aerial and ground-based LiDAR to measure stockpiles of inventory; and
  • Use Wingfield’s industrial scales, and/or WingScan’s truck and rail LiDAR systems to instantly measure outbound materials.

WingScan is a volumetric load scanner using advanced LiDAR technology developed in partnership with German software company LASE Industrielle Lasertechnik GmbH. The WingScan product line includes solutions for measuring in-motion bulk materials traveling via conveyor belts, open top trucks and rail cars.

“WingScan delivers real time, accurate information to your PLC with zero maintenance and one-touch calibration which frees up your maintenance team to focus on other issues,” Dan Caine, Managing Director of Wingfield Measure, says.

Joseph Wingfield, CEO of Wingfield Scale and Measure, added: “With WingScan, we are taking our expertise in the field of measurement to a whole new level. We are making it possible to know the precise quantities of materials in the earliest stages of the supply chain.”
