Loadscan launches new conveyor volume scanner

Loadscan launches a conveyor volume scanner that indicates how much material is moving across a conveyor belt

Loadscan recently announced the launch of its highly anticipated conveyor volume scanner (CVS)—a tool that indicates how much material is moving across a conveyor belt. 

Loadscan says the CVS system has a unique and clever software and friendly web-based user interface. 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.


The CVS is an above belt lidar laser measurement system, which can be used for production management to understand inventory production rates in volume and tonnes, in real time, or for the accurate measurement of contract crushing quantities.

Some of the functionalities of the CVS includes an on-board API that enables setting up a list of jobs from the dispatch system to deliver the specified job quantities, which can be reported directly to the loader operators cab, allowing the starting of a job run to be initiated by the loader operator.

With the correct size frame, the CVS can run on any belt from 400mm to 2000mm wide and can be custom mount for larger belts.

Carey West, owner and director of Loadscan commented, "I am excited about the release of the CVS product as it is a complementary product to our LVS truck scanner that our customers have asked about for a long time to complete their volumetric production tracking on their conveyor belts," Carrey West, owner and director of Loadscan says.

"The development team has done a great job in making the system simple design so it is easy to install and the software interface is stacked with functionality and is super user-friendly."
