WHAT IS A CUBISCAN?
Cubiscan's advanced dimensioning and weighing systems are designed to increase the productivity and efficiency of your warehousing, distribution, and freight manifesting operations. Cubiscans will provide accurate and reliable product dimensions and weight for all of the items in your warehouse or shipping application. Cubiscans use a range of sensing technologies such as ultrasonics, infrared and lasers to capture dimensions depending upon the type of product to be measured. Studies have shown that information captured by a Cubiscan dimensioning system is 15 - 20% more accurate than a manual measurement. Processing time of measuring a product and updating systems is reduced to seconds as opposed to minutes and it is accurate every time! Take a look at our case studies and references to see how customers have benefited from using these dimensional weighing machines.
Dimensioning System Applications
A Cubiscan can be used whenever dimensions and weight are required on products and packages.
Cubiscan's can be used as a static dimensioning system for warehouses which utilise dimensions and weight to optimise the put away process ensuring that the best target locations are used for the products/cases/pallets. The warehouse replenishment process can also utilises these dimensions and weights to ensure that exactly the correct amount of product is put into the picking location. Our dimensional weighing equipment will accurately measure all warehouse products including irregular shaped items accurately first time optimising time, effort and warehouse space.
Picking and packing warehouse orders is the most labour intensive and time consuming process. It is vital to ensure all totes, cages and pallets are filled to exacting levels ensuring no "air" is shipped to customers. The Cubiscan cubing and weighing system provides accurate data and, by utilising the dimensions and weights of a customer's order and pallet dimensioning is able to determine what to pack ensuring it is shipped effectively enabling your warehouse team to choose the cheapest carrier or ensuring that internal orders will fill vehicles effectively.
One customer was able to save 60 cages a week per distribution centre by introducing a Cubiscan 100 into their operations!
Warehouse design is a huge undertaking and project teams always need to know the amount and more importantly the dimensions and weight of the product portfolio to ensure that the correct decisions are made on the size of the facility, racking requirements and storage media. Cubiscan dimensioning system can deliver accurate and reliable dimensions and weights of any shape or size of product making it an extremely valuable tool when embarking on a new project.
Cubiscan's static dimensioning systems for logistics are ideal in the freight industry and are used to capture parcel dimensions and weight. By using a cubing system to automate dimensional measurements within the handling process human error is eradicated and ensures correct tariffs are applied and customers charged accordingly. Thanks to the Cubiscan's ability to measure odd-shaped cubing pallets and delivery vehicles can be packed to capacity leading to potential long term savings.
Cubiscan dimensioning systems are used by many retailers to help with their merchandising activities where cubing, dimensions and weight are crucial for a well stacked shelf and will ensure that they get the most out of their retail space.
