Many shipping and logistic companies experience a lot of challenges when it comes to measuring and weighing packages in order to determine their specific dimensions and weights. In fact, most of these companies use simple tape measure to determine the height and width of a package that requires shipping.
Aside from that, these packages must be hauled into certain counters in order to get weighed by scale to determine their weight. This process is cumbersome and consumes a lot of time and physical effort, wastes money and creates a room for error that may go unnoticed until the last minute.
This problem is not only common to shipping companies, other business that normally utilize shipping services often face similar challenges of dimensional weighing and are often forced to guess the right weight of a package hoping that its specification will hit below a certain mark to minimize shipping cost. As a solution to such dimensioning and cubing problems, Walz scale has developed as new dimensional weighing systems to be used in shipping and logistic companies.
The New Line of Dimensional Weighing Equipment by Walz
This new dimension and weighing system is simple, fast and accurate therefore ideal for shipping as well as distribution centers. Here are some of the best dimensional weighing and scanning equipment that have revolutionized dimensioning and measuring of packages in shipping and logistic companies.
1. In-motion package scanner
In-motion package scanner is a dynamic in-motion cubing system that is designed to give instant package dimensions in conveyor systems. This new dimensioning and cubing technology has convenient industrial grade that allows operators to simply incorporate a scanner system into their existing conveyor belts.
In addition, this dimensioning system is affordable and accurate thereby increasing output and reducing operation cost. Some of capabilities of this new state of art dimensioning technology include real time parcel weighing and dimensioning and its ability to be easily incorporated into traditional conveyor systems.
This in-motion cubing system and dimensioning solution is a modern weighing technology aimed at generating instant cubing data for freight and packages. This dimensional system is high speed and has high accuracy hence ideal for warehousing and shipping operations that requires high accuracy in cubing as well as weighing functionality.
2. Pallet dimensioning system
Pallet dimensioning system is yet another advanced dimensioning system offered by Walz scale, it is simple, fast and accurate hence suitable for customers looking for accurate dimensions and weights of their pallets and large freights.
