Dallmeier focuses on intralogistics

Regensburg, Germany

Next month at the Logimat 2020 Stuttgart trade fair, Dallmeier will showcase a broad portfolio of image-based process optimisation solutions aimed specifically at customers from the intralogistics sector. One example is camera-based "on-the-fly" volume calculation.

Automated volume calculation

One of the great challenges of intralogistics faced by many logistics companies is how to measure a large number of freight goods accurately and efficiently. The purpose is not only to identify incorrect or false information, but most importantly it is also essential to organise the processes so that they are as time-efficient as possible and do not disrupt other important workflows. This is precisely the aspect the automated volume calculation solution developed by Dallmeier is designed to deal with. Special 3D video systems measure the volumes of the freight goods practically instantaneously; the logistics company simply has to define an existing travel path as a measurement section. Exact specifications for the "Dallmeier measuring terminal" are designed to ensure maximum precision. Besides the enormous amount of time saved, other advantages of automated volume calculation include optimal utilisation of loading capacities, plausibility checks against reference data, or even coordinated goods inward and outward strategies.

Centrally controlled image-supported process management 

The innovative Panomera camera solutions from Dallmeier also offer considerably better control of an enormous range of different processes: From monitoring of production lines to rapid response in the event of failures up to and including much more efficient control of the flow of goods and information or improved claims management. In this regard, the high-performance Panomera W camera series with viewing angles of 180° and 360° offers users the ability to capture even very widely separated spatial contexts right from the control centre with a minimal number of cameras. At the same time, the technology ensures that a resolution sufficient for the required applications is always provided, for documentation that is usable in court or in liability cases, for example, or AI-based video analysis as well. Both the 180° camera view and a panoramic 360° perspective help logistics managers to simplify a large number of processes, such as monitoring logistical release systems..

Real-time control of freight goods

The misplacement of consignments is another known challenge which intralogistics must deal with. The tracking system developed by Dallmeier enables automatic search and locating operations for freight goods to be launched by the automated linking of video images with package item numbers. In this process, the various scan events are synchronised with single-frame accuracy using time servers. This guarantees the prevention of loss claims and increases safety at work. Dallmeier camera systems also offer an efficient capability for determining the condition of the freight goods by means of image documentation at the time of transfer of risk.

The patented Panomera multifocal sensor technology does more than just reduce the number of cameras needed, with the associated infrastructure (masts, cables, network, etc.), it also capable of saving on costs many times over. In conjunction with various analysis applications – such as AI-based object classification for reducing the incidence of false alarms – it also provides logistics companies with extremely powerful solutions for warehouses, loading and shipping areas as well as perimeter protection.
