Dimensioner a.k.a. Cubiscan

What is cubiscan?

The process of billing freights has undergone some significant changes in recent years. In past years, metering and billing for cargo logistics was a very simple task; the customer was charged based on the weight of the shipment. As time and technology advanced, the method of shipping cost calculation has shifted to measuring length x width x height.

Get to know about dimensioners

What is a dimensioner?

Dimensioner is a tool to measure volume and dimensions of an object, most particularly of parcels and pallets. Companies that provide or acquire logistic services use dimensioners to calculate the shipping charge of freights based on their dimensions. Dimensioners are usually accompanied by scales in order to measure the weights of freights.

How 3D dimensioners work

3D vision-based dimensioners are becoming more popular thanks to their cost-effectiveness and easy-to-deploy nature. As the dimensioning paradigm shifts from primitive ultrasound/infrared sensors and expensive lasers to 3D vision cubing systems, some questions may arise among users.

Why do you need to use dimensioners?

Increase your profit with dimensioners

There is on average 40% difference between the declared value and actual value of dimensional weights. Dimensioners provide you a systematic way to prevent higher-than-actual costs due to wrong dimensional data.

3D Imager Dimensioners vs Laser Dimensioners

Laser dimensioners have been in use for more than 20 years. They are robust and proven; however, they are very expensive and difficult to install. That is why it is quite hard for the companies to employ laser dimensioners. They have to think twice and make sure that they are profitable.

BeeVision: Master Data Collector

Increase your warehouse efficiency with dimension and weight master data

Warehouse and fleet management SW are commonly used but in order to take full advantage of efficiency-boosting SW, you need the dimension and weight master data of what you store and ship.

Transition to cubing and weighing systems

Points to check before adapting dimensioners

Are you still measuring packages or even pallets manually? With a tape measure? How do you save cubing data to your database? To perfectly control your shipping costs or revenues, you need a dimensioner. Dimensioning systems help you systematically and accuractely measure dimensions of packages and save cubing data to your WMS, TMS or ERP.

Image capture with dimensioning systems

Tracking and preventing damage claims

Current dimensioners are mostly equipped with cameras and images of products can be captured during automatic dimensioning. This provides you the oppurtunity to take pictures of incoming and outgoing products and save them either in the dimensioner or in your database as well.

Connection to TMS, ERP, WMS

Integration of dimensioners to your system

First concern during transition to automatic dimensioning is integration to existing software systems. The reason lies in the past. Laser based dimensioners do not possess strong processing capabilities and thus their only job is to provide cubing data. You would need an intermediate computer or software to get data, convert according to your needs and send to your database.
