Inline scanning for weight and dimension verification provides a final quality audit in the pick and pack process, eliminating the need for operators to validate each carton. Numina Group is a leading warehouse automation company with in-depth knowledge of automated technologies to streamline distribution center processes. Numina offers Tier One Warehouse Control Systems which provide real-time automation of all order distribution processes.
Over 25 years ago, Numina developed laser triangulation measurement technology which accurately scans and captures the dimension of cartons. This precision technology also called the “cuber” has become standard in many distribution centers around the world. Numina’s Scan-Weigh-Dimension, SWD, technology eliminates the need for operators to manually measure and record carton attributes, eliminating human error with increased speed and accuracy.
Numina’s SWD weight measurements system utilizes third generation 3D camera sensors for consistent accuracy. SWD technology is an important component of top tier Warehouse Execution and Control Systems (WES-WCS). Numina offers tier one warehouse control with Real-Time Distribution, RDS™, which incorporates SWD technology to audit shipment weight and dimension based on data projected from order entry systems.
SWD provides real-time verification to divert exceptions to a quality control hold area, preventing errors in shipping. This eliminates charge backs from freight carriers and improves customer satisfaction with improved quality control. Numina’s patented inline SWD technology can capture images of each shipment with a high-resolution camera and store each image for improved quality and customer service.
Combine Inline SWD with Print and Apply Labeling
Combining high speed SWD technology with automated print and apply labeling systems reaps big rewards in improved productivity, reducing costs and improving profit. SWD systems provide automated methods of choosing the freight carrier with the least costs based on carton specifications by capturing carton information with high speed scanning, communicating with shipping manifest systems which send the proper shipping label to the Print and Apply Labeling system.
