Dimensioners, sometimes called cubing systems, are a relatively new technology, making their first appearance in the late 1980's being introduced to market by Cubiscan. They were designed to make cubing, dimensioning, and weighing for shipping and inventory control a fast, efficient, and accurate process to minimize excess packaging and maximize the amount of product that can be palletized, crated, or shipped.
Cubiscan manufactuers dimensioners for any size application, from large room-scale dimensioners for oversized pallets all the way down to table-top sized systems for parcel measurement applications. Pallet dimensioners are for larger items and are most useful for large freight shipping. Parcel dimensioners such as the Cubiscan 125 are for weighing and measuring individual boxes, containers, or items and are most commonly seen in warehouses and distribution centers.
Parcel dimensioners, ideal for shipping of smaller products, can be used as standalone pieces or equipment or implemented into conveyor systems for seamless measuring to be sorted and shipped. When a parcel dimensioner like the Cubiscan 200-TS is integrated with a conveyor system, they allow for hundreds of items to be measured every minute with the need for the conveyor to slow down or stop to allow products to be measured.
Cubiscan dimensioning systems are immensely useful to any warehouse or material handling facility that has a volume of shipping, especially shipping of irregularly shaped items. They use state of the art technology to optimize every inch of your freight space, and because of this, they tend to be very expensive, costing tens of thousands of dollars. Fortunately, when buying used from American Surplus, you will save 40-60% off the price of a new Cubiscan system, saving you thousands.
