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.

Multi-Faceted Approach to Business Automation

Walz Label & Mailing Systems has three major divisions. The divisions are focused on specific services and products; these are Labeling, Mailing and Automation.

The Labeling division is focused on providing quality products and supplies for data collection and product identification.

The Mailing division is focused on designing and implementing scalable, flexible solutions for facilitating inbound and outbound business communication, whether digital or physical.

The Automation division helps in the designing, building and servicing high quality intelligent handling solutions that improve client capabilities.

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.

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.

Walz Dimensioning Cubing Systems

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-Motion Package Scanner

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. Even in the toughest conditions, this systems still offers fast and accurate measurements and therefore ideal for large freight operations.

Its data management functionality facilitates seamless integration of this dimensioning system into existing shipping as well as warehouse management systems. Besides that, pallet dimensioning systems also utilizes advanced dimensional weighing scales and scanner technology in order to attain high accuracy of dimensional data of package in real time. These dimension scanners also provide dimensions and weight of pallet without stopping the pallet. Not to mention, these scanners are also available for both indoor and outdoor operations depending on the customer’s’ needs.

3. Static package scanner

The static package scanner scanner is yet another dimensioning and weighing technology suitable for warehouse operations, shipping industry , POS desk or any other organization looking for accurate, affordable and fast dimensional weighing .This dimensional weighing system integrates affordable pricing and reliable dimensioning into a single unit that is easy to use.
