AKL-tec presents APACHE btl at the transport logistic in Munich.

A new system will be travelling to Munich with AKL-tec GmbH to the transport logistic. In Hall 3, Stand 121 the key topix will be the measurement of bulk truck cargo. Specific inquiries about a solution for this issue led the company to the decision on addressing the area of bulk cargo next to the well-known APACHE and redtagger-systems. The idea is to detect the volume of the truck cargo on tipper trucks. The principle is the same as with standard APACHE-systems:  The vehicle drives underneath of two laser scanners attached to a motorized measuring beam. The measurement is started and the gathered data is transferred to the customer database. For visualization purposes AKL-tec plans to display a miniature truck being measured at the trade show. “We are excited to be presenting the areas of application for APACHE btl. With bulk truck cargo it is often not enough to simply weigh the cargo, as some cargo deviates significantly when being wet or dry. Therefore our solution of cargo measurement delivers a much better clarity of the actual amount.”, says Rüdiger Elben CEO of AKL-tec GmbH. Next to btl AKL-tec will be displaying APACHE portal first choice. The volume measurement system is extremely compact, robust and easy to install. Therefore the device can be set up or moved to another location on a truck within a small amount of time. Through the detection of volume an weight of cargo under-declared freight can easily be tracked down. Due to its’ conformity assessment the data can be used for legally relevant billing purposes.
