The Gerhard Schubert TLM vision system features a 3-D scanner that is positioned over a packaging line conveyor belt to determine the 3-dimensional data of products. The system calculates the volume and, if the product density is consistent, the weight of each product using the information from the scanner. A set point/actual value comparison can be made for the stack height or length. The system also can determine where overlapping has occurred to enable the proper processing of these products.
