Drone in action: Sonae Arauco receives BGHM occupational award
The prestigious award of the German Employers' Liability Insurance Association for Wood and Metal (BGHM) was awarded to the Sonae Arauco plant in Nettgau for an innovative and unique occupational safety measure.
The drone flight is completed in 30 minutes. The final calculation takes three hours. Initiator and inventor of the project "drone" is Bernd Lippe, production manager wood: "I am extremely satisfied with the result which was achieved by the drone inventory. This allowes us to make our processes safer, more accurate, faster and more reproducible, and this type of inventory could also be used in other plants, "says Lippe.
Inventory measurement via drone was planned and carried out by Bernd Lippe on his own. It is a unique project. "The drone driver's license was the simplest challenge - much more labor-intensive was the development of the measurement software," summarizes Lippe, who has already received numerous inquiries regarding this project.
