Volume scanner for measuring report on bulk material flow

Loadscan, a global leader in payload profiling systems, has released the conveyor volume scanner (CVS) – a high tech, easy to use tool that allows users to see how much material is moving across their conveyor belt.

Loadscan systems provide 3D images and insightful data in real-time for every load, equipping users to optimise loading, productivity and profitability.

The CVS is an above-belt lidar laser measurement system. It is ideal for production management because it provides unambiguous data, including 3D profiling, in real-time or period reporting.

The Loadscan belt scanner gives users a clear understanding of their inventory production rates (or contract crushing quantities) in volume and tonnes. Its specially designed scan-head, with single laser, continuously scans the full width of a conveyor belt at high angular resolution to capture accurate volumetric measurement of material flowing by.

“We are really excited about this product,” said Carey West, the owner and director of Loadscan.

“The concept of a belt scanner has been around for a while – customers have been asking for it – and now we can deliver a well designed solution that’s easy to install and affordable, that has a software interface that is stacked with functionality, and that’s user-friendly.



"Whether you’re talking about optimising truck loads or measuring bulk material flow across a conveyor belt, we’re chasing the same outcome: greater efficiency and, ultimately, improved profitability for our customers."
Carey West, Owner and director of Loadscan

“The CVS is the perfect complement to our load volume truck scanners and will complete our customers’ volumetric production tracking. It could also solve production management headaches for many companies, and industries, that have never used volumetric scanning before. I can see it being adapted to a variety of industry applications.”

West said that, unlike other optical belt scales, which provide some data but don’t integrate easily, the Loadscan CVS has been designed to provide hassle-free, insightful reporting. It has extensive functionality options, with an on-board application programming interface (API).

The API enables the user to easily set up a list of jobs, instructing their dispatch system to deliver specified job quantities (which can be reported direct to the loader operator’s cab) and allowing the job run to be initiated by the loader operator.

The Loadscan conveyor volume scanner works across all conveyor belts. The standard scan head is simply fixed to the appropriately sized frame, which expands or contracts, for a secure fit to the user’s belt.

With the correct size frame, the CVS can run on any belt from 400mm to 2000mm wide (and can be custom-mounted on belts up to 3000mm). It can also be used on deep belts, supplying accurate measurement for material quantities that were previously thought to be too great for bulk-flow volume scanning.

Loadscan has been at the forefront of volumetric measurement over the past decade, ensuring easy, accurate load management with its load volume scanning (LVS) systems for trucks and trailers.

The Loadscan LVS and CVS systems both utilise laser-scanning technology combined with proprietary Loadscan software to measure the exact volume of the material (either loaded in a truck/trailer bin or flowing on a conveyor belt).

The CVS continues Loadscan’s history of high build quality. It is a robust product that will withstand a wide temperature range in harsh environments. The high spec lasers used in the CVS are class one eye-safe, meaning users do not require extra protection.

West and his team at Loadscan have built upon the volumetric scanning technology his father originally pioneered, and are now fielding global interest for their innovative product.

“Whether you’re talking about optimising truck loads or measuring bulk material flow across a conveyor belt, we’re chasing the same outcome: greater efficiency and, ultimately, improved profitability for our customers,” West said.
