Dimensioning and weighing system with laser scanners

Dimensioning with lasers
Dimensioning with lasers

A signature feature of this system is dimensioning of non-cuboidal objects randomly placed on the line.

How It Works
  1. An object is fed to the measuring device.
  2. Object barcode is scanned and registered with the database.
  3. The system weighs and measures the object on the go.
  4. Objects are photographed automatically.
  5. Data (barcode, dimensions, weight, dimensional weight, photos) are registered with the database.
  6. The system submits data to the customer’s WMS.
  7. If required, the database returns the sorting direction (if the system is equipped with the sorter).

Software is developed and supported by SCAMATIC engineers. This gives good advantages in system maintenance. We greet new ideas and are ready to adjust the system free of charge. One can easily calculate the freight transport cost, eliminate measurement errors, and enhance the overall performance.

We can supplement the system with any conveyor equipment (motorized or gravity roller conveyors, belt conveyors, sorters, etc.)
