Dimensioning Systems FAQs

A dimensioning system is a technology that uses sensors and software to capture accurate measurements of objects, packages, or pallets. This data is used to determine the weight, dimensions, and volume of the items being measured, so the customer does not have to find the dimensional weight (DIM weight) manually.

A dimensioning system uses sensors such as lasers or cameras to capture measurements of an object in three dimensions. The data is then processed by software that calculates the weight dimensions, and volume of the object.

The benefits of using a dimensioning system include increased efficiency, reduced labor costs, improved accuracy, and better inventory management.

There are several types of dimensioning systems, including static, dynamic, and portable systems. Static systems are fixed in place and measure objects as they pass through a designated area. Dynamic systems are mounted on conveyors and measure objects as they move along the conveyor. Portable systems are handheld or mounted on a cart and can be moved to different locations.

The key features of a good dimensioning system include accuracy, speed, ease of use, integration with other systems, flexibility, and compatibility with various object sizes and shapes.

Dimensioning systems can be highly accurate, with some systems capable of measuring to within a few millimeters or ounces.

Dimensioning systems help with inventory management by providing accurate and real time data on the dimensions, weight, and volume of items in inventory. This data can be used to optimize warehouse space, reduce transportation costs, and improve order fulfillment.

Yes, dimensioning systems can be integrated with other software systems such as warehouse management systems, transportation management systems, and enterprise resource planning systems.

The costs associated with implementing a dimensioning system vary depending on the type of system, the size of the operation, and the level of integration required. Costs may include hardware, software, installation, and training.

What Our Customers Say

"American Scale's technicians are the best I've ever seen. They never stopped working, never goofed off and were very knowledgeable and could answer every question I asked."
Karen Gramm
Regional Manager, ABF Freight
"I received a call from a gentleman at Conway Freight regarding your service at Conway in Louisville.  Apparently he was extremely impressed with the service, repairs and installations American Scale completed at the terminal.  During the years we have been doing national service, this is the first time one of the national accounts has called specifically to compliment a dealer.  He has never walked into a terminal and not called me with some issue that needs to be fixed.  He said a couple times over there was not one little thing wrong with the scales that he could find. I want to thank your for everything you have done to present because American Scale represents Rice Lake and you have made both companies look great!  The gentleman who called is also the person who controls the reweighs and scale purchases for Conway corporate.  With that said, he was impressed!"
