Newcastle Systems announces Atlas Series Mobile Dimensioning workstations
November 5, 2017 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Nov. 4, 2017 – Newcastle Systems, a provider of mobile-powered workplace solutions, has announced the Atlas Series Mobile Dimensioning workstations, equipped with a QubeVu DimStation, which includes supporting pole and integrated display providing dimensioning on “virtually any shape, anywhere in under a second.”
The series consists of 30-inch and 48-inch long workstations that hold and power the QubeVu DimStation and other hardware including scales, laptops, thin clients, CPUs and printers. The dimensioning stations allow warehouses and distribution centres to manage extreme volume, even during seasonal peaks. Warehouse staff can dimension directly at the product location, which increases productivity by up to 50 per cent because costly steps and motion have been eliminated, says the company, adding that it also helps to reduce operator fatigue and potential injury as staff members are no longer carrying or moving parcels to a fixed station. Dimensioning, according to the company, lets warehouses predict shipping costs with much greater accuracy, and provides the necessary data to enable direct-to-box picking. The dimensioning technology has built-in imaging for verification, tracking and claim protection, and is compatible with popular warehouse management systems (WMS) and shipping software, including UPS Worldship and FedEx ShipStation.
