Resumen:
Una empresa austríaca especializada en la venta minorista de componentes industriales y suministro de sistemas de inspección de calidad para varios sectores busca sensores listos para el mercado con el fin de desarrollar un nuevo sistema de inspección para logística. El sistema debe medir las dimensiones (3D) de las cajas y sus defectos locales (bultos y marcas) con gran precisión mientras las cajas se mueven en una cinta transportadora. Se busca un desarrollador/fabricante de sensores para establecer acuerdos de cooperación técnica (integración de los sensores en un nuevo sistema de inspección) y fabricación (suministro de sensores para la producción en serie).

Details

Tittle:
Sensor technologies requested for highly accurate measurement of dimensions of moved boxes
Summary:
An Upper Austrian company is looking for close to market sensors for the development of a new inspection system for application in logistics. Dimensions (3D) of boxes and their local defects (bulges, impressions) shall be measured with high accuracy while the boxes are moved on a conveyor. Sensor developer / manufacturer are sought for a technical cooperation (integration into the new inspection system) and a subsequent manufacturing agreement (supplying the sensor for serial production).
Description:
The Upper Austrian middle sized enterprise has been a well established retailer for industrial components and solution provider for quality inspection systems in diverse industrial sectors for many years.
For the development of a new inspection system for applications in logistics the company is looking for sensors / sensor technologies for highly accurate measurement of dimensions (3D) and local defects of boxes, which are moved on a conveyor belt.

In large stores and warehouses huge numbers of different boxes are stacked on racks by automated systems. For using rack spaces most efficiently boxes have to be stacked very close to each other. For the automated system it is essential to know the dimensions of every box and local defects in these dimensions as exact as possible. With state of the art systems (measuring light grids, laser line triangulation) measurement of 3D dimensions of boxes moved on conveyor belts is not accurate enough as requested by store operators.

The Upper Austrian company is looking for developer / manufacturer offering a suitable sensor or related technology for integration into a prototype of the new inspection system (technical cooperation agreement). Should the prototype succeed, the Austrian company plans to build up series production of the new inspection system and to purchase the required sensor from the partner in form of a subcontracting agreement (manufacturing agreement).
Technical Specification or Expertise Sought:
- The sensor should be able to measure the dimensions of (rectangular) boxes with an accuracy of +/- 5 mm and local defects in these dimensions (bulges, impressions) with a size down to +/- 5 mm.
- length of the edge of the boxes: maximum 1000 mm, minimum 500 mm
- boxes with different dimensions possible
- The boxes are moved on a conveyor belt through an inspection tunnel with a velocity of approx. 0,5 m/sec. The movement may cause slight wobbling of the boxes during measurement.
- As measurement is done in the inspection tunnel, extraneous light will have no influence and thus has not to be considered.
- The sensor should be close to market.

Technologies of interest might include, but are not limited to:
- real time 3D image acquisition camera systems
- measuring light grids / curtains
- laser line triangulation
- time of flight cameras
- light field based technologies

Partner sought

Type and Role of Partner Sought:
Specific area of activity of the partner:
developer and / or manufacturer of sensor / sensor technologies for 3D measurements (regardless of industrial sector); ideally the partner is able to provide a sensor already on the market or a prototype of sensor suited for pilot applications.

Task to be performed by the partner:
- technical cooperation agreement: the partner should offer a suitable or adaptable sensor / sensor technology together with technical details and support for the integration into the new inspection system. After evaluation of a first concept for the new system together with a client from logistics sector a prototype will be built by the Upper Austrian company.
- manufacturing agreement: In case of succes the Austrian company plans to build up series production of the new system and to enter into a subcontracting agreement with the sensor provider.
