You really need to talk to the manufacturers of the scanners for this industrial application
http://www.sick.com /
is a good place to start looking.
You may want to consider a machine-vision system or even an array of distance sensors.
I have no experience in this field, but I think its likely that you'll have to write some bespoke software to process your sensor data.
