With parcel carriers' shipping rates expected to rise as much as 8 percent this year, calculating accurate dimensional sizes for shipments is even more critical to a company's profitability. Measuring boxes with a tape measure or a caliper is a slow and inaccurate way to calculate dimensional weight (dim weight). As an alternative, Doran Scales has developed a solution that is fast, accurate, and easy to use. The Model 1200C Cubing System for Cases is an affordable solution that calculates dimensions to an accuracy of a tenth of an inch.
While other cubing systems use lasers, ultrasonic sensors, or hand scanners, the Doran 1200C uses safe, optical eyes in the axis arms to calculate carton dimensions. The sensitive optical sensors are protected from accidental damage in the steel axis arms.
The intuitive design of the control panel assures that minimal operator training is required. All the operator has to do is position the case on the scale. The 1200C cubing system then calculates weight, height, width, depth, and volume. It displays the results on its bright LCD display, with data presented in 0.05-pound increments and the length measured in 0.1-inch increments. The cubing dimensions can be shown in either metric or non-metric units.
The Doran 1200C is designed to be used as a stand-alone cubing system or as an integral part of a company's data-collection system. Perfect Measure software is included, which can create product databases of weight and dimensional information. This software also interfaces with existing warehouse management systems, enterprise resource planning software, and many shipping manifest systems.
