Walz Label & Mailing Systems is a family owned business that was established in 1966. It is headed by its president Tom Walz who has years of experience in this field. It is an independent organization which has grown over the years, providing its clients with business automation solutions that not only meet but surpass their unique needs and requirements.
This is made possible by the fact that Walz Label & Mailing Systems is an independent dealer for some of the world’s leading manufacturers, such as Cornerstone Automation Systems (CASI). This allows Walz to shop for and offer a solution that fits a client’s budget, specification and support requirements.

An Inside Look At Walz Automation Solutions
In the Automation division, some of the most sought after services offered by the company are the checkweigher systems and cubing systems (for package dimensioning.) In this regard, the company has partnered with CASI (Cornerstone Automation Systems) USA; the manufacturers of checkweigher systems.
These systems are used for manufacturing as well as distribution. They usually include a wide variety of systems and scales in their portfolio such as conveyor scales, inline checkweigher systems, in-motion scales, and in-line scale systems. The systems are designed for both stainless steel and standard applications. NEMA 4X and Mild washdown applications are also available in the product basket.
The above mentioned systems are widely used in packaging lines, end of line packing, pick verification, product divert, and in-motion weighing and cubing systems. The systems are not only accurate and fast, but most of them are easy to integrate with other systems or equipments such as scanners and data loggers.
State-of-the-Art Checkweighers & Cubing Systems
It is also important to note that some of these systems can be used in water, cold or chemical washdown environments. There are also specialty checkweigher systems and software which allow for the integration of a checkweigher system into existing systems such as a line-shaft transportation conveyor or other areas where semi-manual processes may be in use.
The cubing and dimensioning systems are also manufactured by CASI. These are basically in-motion cubing systems which are designed for pallets and cartons. These systems can either come as stand-alone systems or be designed as part of a cubing, receiving or shipping system. The company also sells and integrates the highly acclaimed CubiScan static system which can be used for a wide variety of tasks such as outbound shipping, populating SKUs with dimensions and weights etc.
It is important to note that the in-motion cubing systems sold are conveyor based and some of them such as the SolidCube 3000 Series has been designed as the lowest cost inline system with an integrated scale. The SolidCube 4000 on the other hand is a carton dimensioning system that’s ideal for fulfillment and receiving whereas the 1200 Pallet Cuber is specifically designed for hard to see material or complex pallets and is one of the few cubing systems offered which can be used with a conveyor or static system.
