Tovatech has introduced a new inventory management system using digital scales for counting and stock control.
The FKC accurate inventory management system pairs a Kern reference balance and a Kern bulk scale to speed the flow and accuracy of product quantities from the receiving dock through inventory control and outbound shipments. The high resolution Kern FKC stocktaking counting system quickly calculates stock quantities, which can be transferred to a PC for record keeping. A barcode scanner can be integrated with the stock keeping system to reduce errors in stock identification.
Reference quantities are established with the Kern KB-N reference balance. Individual piece weight is established by weighing a quantity of product—the larger number the better for lightweight items but generally 10 pieces will yield an acceptable calculation. The scale then calculates the weight per piece.
The FKA stocktaking scale accepts existing inventory data in an Excel list transmitted from a PC. The FKC stock control system scale has the capability to store 1000 items in memory including stock number, pre-tare container weight, reference quantity, and reference weight. This unit is powered by standard 120-volt AC, 6 x 1.5 volt batteries or an optional rechargeable battery.
