June 21, 2006 -- METTLER TOLEDO is excited to announce the revolutionary CNS810static dimensioning and weighing system uniquely designed for warehouses, carriers, parcel drop-off centers, post offices and logistics terminals.
Because oversize or odd shaped packages take up extra room, carriers charge customers by dimension(DIM)weight. Fast-paced shippers do not have the time to measure each package manually with a tape measure. The CNS810 dimensioning system is a compact and robust workstation designed to capture the volume, weight and identification of parcels and objects automatically, thereby improving manifesting speed and accuracy.
Safe and proven rangefinder technology captures thousands of data points for precise and repeatable measurements. This sealed unit is highly reliable and requires little maintenance other than cleaning. The overhead mounting provides unrestricted package flow and availability to measure large boxes. Non-contact measuring and three second cycle times allow maximum throughput.
Stand Alone or Fully Integrated
Modular design accommodates operating and data requirements. It is easy to integrate dimension, weight and barcode data and then communicate directly to a host computer system. The graphical interface is user-friendly and provides easy set-up, calibration and diagnostics. A simple five-step calibration process requires no tools and takes less than five minutes!
“Accurate package information is vital to so many warehouse, transport and logistics processes,” says Phil Metzler, Strategic Product Leader for Shipping and Mail Products at Mettler Toledo. “If you don’t have good cube and weight data, you can’t fill your warehouse efficiently or load your truck full. And you’ll certainly pay either too much or too little to your parcel carriers. The problem has been that table-top cubing machines are too small and don’t allow good material flow, and many companies don’t need or can’t afford dynamic cubing systems designed for high volume applications. The CNS810 system fills the market need for a static system that can be easily installed into existing material handling situations, can measure almost any shippable parcel in just 3 seconds, and communicates data directly to a host computer. We think it will have a huge impact on the warehouse market as companies continue to search for ways to improve efficiency and reduce costs.”
