3D measurement solution with xDIM was designed to optimise efficiency for warehouse workers and other areas of transport and logistics. Enabling users to capture accurate dimensions and utilise all the space in your distribution centre and truck trailers.
xDim Advantages | space, time and cost efficiencies
The 3D solution can provide quick and accurate measurements of packages. By simply scanning the object using 3D camera technology, integrated into a wide range of compatible Windows rugged tablets, such as the xTablet T1180. All options feature shock-absorbing rugged bumpers and a hard ridged shell to protect the tablet when dropped. As well as a carry handle and back strap permitting convenient transportation for workers.
Another beneficial attribute is data collection. Users can immediately capture data which can be accessed in real-time from a cloud-based analytics dashboard. This improves communication with other workers and with customers.
Taking the xDIM camera measurement solution even further, MobileDemand has enhanced its capabilities.
Utilising an Intel RealSense camera attached to a rugged tablet. The xDIM solution can now measure almost double the amount. Incorporating a new 2-step “box face” method to measure large boxes up to 7-8 feet this could include large objects such as TV’s, white goods, and other furniture. As well as this, the xDIM 3D solution has been upgraded to facilitate much smaller measurements. The “corner” method measures smaller boxes from 3-inches to 48-inches (4 feet). Therefore, Transport and logistics workers can easily determine stackability and fill every square foot of shipping trucks and warehouse space when the 3D measurement solution is applied. This enables all space to be fully utilised supporting the efficiency and productivity of the supply chain.
Additionally, MobileDemand has introduced the xDIM scale cart for those working in an environment that requires mobility to take weights and measures. The xDIM metrology cart consists of a heavy-duty platform truck for easy transit, equipped with a postal and shipping scale for acquiring accurate weights. The scale cart and the rugged tablet with the 3D measurement with the scale cart can be seamlessly integrated using the snap mount.
Once more, the rugged solution has been officially NTEP certified, to the applicable requirements of NIST handbook 44. The National Conference on Weights and Measures evaluation qualified the product as legal for trade. Although this does improve credibility, the certification is only applicable to the United States standards and legislation.
Overall, The 3D measurement solution improves customer satisfaction because orders are received quickly. Considering the exponential growth of e-commerce, it’s imperative to ensure you’re optimising the supply chain wherever possible to contend with competitors sending orders in record time. Orders can be placed and delivered on the same day for some companies. Although, for many, this is unobtainable, and unrealistic because they don’t have access to the same resources and manpower. But, applying new practices wherever possible, and making observations about how practices can be improved is essential to maintain business when considering the ongoing growth of e-commerce.
