Accu-Sort® Systems announces that its DM3500 Dimensioner has received NTEP (National Type Evaluation Program) certification from the National Conference on Weights and Measures (NCWM) for singulated box flows to 600 ft/min, more than 50 percent faster than competitive dimensioners. This transport speed, combined with box spacing down to two inches, significantly improves throughput compared to other solutions.
For box heights up to four inches, the DM3500 dimensioner is certified for 0.1-inch error, compared to 0.2-inch for competitive units. This means that users can certify box heights as small as 1.2 inches, based on the NTEP minimum requirement of 12d, where d is the maximum error. For box heights over four inches and lengths/widths greater than 2.4 inches, the DM3500 is certified to 0.2 inches at speeds to 600 ft/min.
The DM3500 from Accu-Sort accurately determines the volume of in-motion, cube-shaped packages on flat conveyor belts. This allows users to accurately calculate shipping charges on in-motion parcel streams. The DM3500 calculates real volume and the smallest box to enclose an object without contacting the object. It also:
· Measures the length, width and height of objects
· Measures different shaped objects
· Is certified legal-for-trade by NTEP
“For any legal for trade applications, the DM3500 is a certified, best in class product,” said Andrew Ross, product marketing manager with Accu-Sort Systems. “The improved height accuracy and faster transport speeds help shippers recover revenue on large flat objects that previously either had to be handled by hand or went unmeasured. This opens up a significant additional revenue opportunity for parcel shippers.”
NTEP is an evaluation program administered by NCWM in which weighing and measuring devices are examined to determine if their performance, operating characteristics, features and options comply with the applicable requirements of NIST. Type evaluation provides relief from excessive failures in initial and subsequent verifications of a device. Devices meeting NTEP requirements are certified as being best in class.
