VM3D Volumetric Laser Scanner Datasheet

Source: ABB Measurement & Analytics

The Volumetric Laser Scanner (VM3D) is a non-contact, volume measuring instrument designed for granular solid materials. Based on pulsed laser technology, the VM3D embodies speed and accuracy in a single, easy to use and install product. The characteristic narrow beam divergence of the laser coupled with a precise mechanical scanning system that covers a complete hemisphere permits direct aiming to the target surface and building a tight point cloud from which to derive a surface map.

Because the VM3D system computes the shape and volume of stockpiles from a point cloud it is possible to merge the data from any number of scanners to obtain the shape and volume of even the largest stockpiles. Whether measuring a few meters into the confined space of a small silo, or to the bottom of the largest warehouse, the VM3D with its long range, wide angular sweep and ability to function as a scanner network is the plug-and-play solution to stockpile volume measurement.
