Ideal for sorting packages, but also practical for assembly on the conveyor belt.
The result is increased quality, increased production and savings in time and money.
Package sorting is an essential part of the logistics process, and using laser projectors in conjunction with a camera or motion sensor can offer significant benefits. The laser projector, such as Z-laser's ZLP1, allows continuous projection onto moving surfaces, which is ideal for parcel sorting.
In package sorting, the camera or motion sensor is used to detect the movement and locations of the packages. The laser projector then continuously projects visual markings on the parcels as they move along the conveyor belt. These markings can include letters, numbers and bar codes, for example.
The continuous projection of the laser projector allows parcels to be easily identified by an operator or camera system and tracked during the sorting process. This helps in accurately and efficiently directing the parcels to the correct destinations based on their characteristics or barcodes. It improves the speed and accuracy of the sorting process, minimizing errors and delays.
In addition to package sorting, this application of the laser projector can also be practical for assembly on the conveyor belt. The continuous projection can serve as a visual guide for workers who need to assemble components while on a moving conveyor. This facilitates accurate and efficient performance of assembly tasks, even in a dynamic work environment.
In short, Z-laser's parcel sorting application uses laser projectors to enable continuous projection on moving surfaces. This provides benefits such as improved accuracy, speed and efficiency in package sorting, as well as practical support for assembly tasks on a conveyor belt.
1. Package orientation: Lasers can be used to detect and control package orientation. By projecting a laser beam across the surface of the package, the system can determine the position, size and shape of the package. This helps determine the correct sorting location based on package size or specific requirements.

This helps determine the correct sorting location based on package size or specific requirements.
- Sorting indication: Lasers can be used to provide visual indications to operators or sorters. For example, by focusing the laser beam on a specific location or container, the system can indicate where the package should be placed for further processing or shipping. This improves the accuracy and efficiency of the sorting process.
- Automatic sorting: Combined with advanced image processing algorithms, a laser system can automatically sort parcels based on various criteria, such as destination, size or weight. The laser can be used to collect the necessary data and the image processing technology can analyze the packages and assign them to the appropriate sorting locations.
- Error detection and rejection: Lasers can also be used for error detection during the sorting process. By moving the laser projection over the surface of the package, the system can detect any damage, missing labels or other discrepancies. Packages that do not meet the required standards can be automatically rejected or sent to a separate sorting location for further inspection.
