Fine positioning of stacker crane in high-bay storage with InspectorP | SICK AG


Increasing order frequencies and volume in distribution centers requires efficient warehouse processes. As a
result, the requirements for high-bay warehouses are also increasing. The
number of storage and retrieval operations per hour are the decisive
parameters here. Storage space is expensive and maximum use of this space
is the top priority. There are various challenges: The precise
positioning of goods during storage and retrieval. High accelerations and
decelerations. Transport of large weights at dizzying heights. Different loading of
shelves. Deformations due to temperature fluctuations. Collisions resulting in
unplanned downtime. The InspectorP with the Rack Fine Positioning SensorApp is
a 2D vision SensorApp specifically designed for this application. Mounted on
the storage and retrieval machine, it always keeps an eye on the rack and
reports deviations between the target and actual positions. Which is the key to
a precise and fast storage process. Fast and intuitive alignment without a computer. Drill holes or reflectors. This one device handles single depth and
double depth racks with identical accuracy. The InspectorP 2D vision
camera easily detects corrosion on shelves and deformed bores.
Additionally remote maintenance is possible. Both the green feedback LED and
visualization of camera images make maintenance very easy.
The InspectorP Rack Fine Positioning – simple and process stable. Fine
positioning for single and double depth rack detection with only one sensor. SICK AppSpace – engineering framework for your sensor applications. All applications. All technologies. One eco-system.
