The patent-pending Laser Loader System allows for automatic, 24-hour-a-day loading of feed trucks with limited human assistance required. The system is designed for operators of high-volume feed mills who need to increase speed, improve safety and accuracy, and reduce errors and expenses from the process of loading feed trucks. Utilizing RFID tags mounted on the feed trucks, the system automatically identifies each truck as it enters the load out driveway. The system will then pull from the predefined load out delivery schedule the feed order corresponding to that truck. Utilizing lasers and other electronic devices, the system will automatically load each type of truck exactly as required while also verifying the position of the truck, that the cover is open, and that no feed is already in any truck compartment that should be empty. Without an operator required to actively control the system, it will then operate either a moveable lorry or a shuttle conveyor to pull the correct feed from a series of overhead bins and deliver and weigh the desired amount of feed into each desired compartment of the truck—all while capturing required weight values for each compartment. When the loading of the truck is complete, the system will print delivery tickets, sample tickets, and send all weights for all compartments for the entire load to the feed mill’s information and accounting system for invoicing. The system can be easily installed on most existing lorry or shuttle conveyor load out systems.
