BinMaster, an operating division of Garner Industries in Lincoln, Nebraska, has entered into a new direct license agreement with Emerson, a global engineering and technology company. Under the terms of the agreement, BinMaster has acquired an exclusive license to manufacture and distribute the 3D Solids Scanner level sensor and its associated software worldwide.
"This agreement ensures continued availability of the 3D Solids Scanners for customers demanding precise measurement of vessels and its 3D modeling software for years to come,” said Scott Hudson, executive vice president of sales and marketing for BinMaster. “BinMaster has successfully marketed this technology as the 3DLevelScanner in the United States and Canada since 2009. We have built an established customer base over this time who have come to rely on 3D level sensing technology. New customers with complex measuring problems will have the valuable option of the 3DLevelScanner that would not be possible without this agreement. BinMaster will now offer the 3DLevelScanner globally.
“Emerson is pleased to enter into a new global license agreement with BinMaster,” said Thomas Ortenberg, vice president & general manager with Emerson’s Automation Solutions business. “We will continue to leverage our patented breakthrough technologies used in the 3D Solids Scanner for the development of future products in the Emerson portfolio.”
BinMaster got its start in the early 1960s when a local seed company asked Garner Industries to fabricate a switch to alert when bins were full. Today, BinMaster is a privately held, independent US manufacturer of point and continuous level indicators and inventory management systems used for monitoring bulk solids or liquids in bins, tanks, silos and hoppers. More than just level sensors, the company offers complete solutions using wireless devices and web applications to send data to a control room, console, smartphone, tablet, or PC. Robust, custom systems can be developed for a single site or networked across a multi‐national operation. BinMaster is certified to ISO 9001 quality management systems—requirements.
