3 things to look for when choosing a pallet dimensioner

Measurement accuracy


There are a few different types of technology used by dimensioners, Resolution dimensioners use industry-leading 3D image processing technology, providing higher accuracy and greater reliability than other products on the market. Resolution 4, the pallet weigh dimensioner, achieves an accuracy of +2cm which is higher than a lot of competitors.


When choosing your dimensioner, it’s important to make sure you’re not just getting the highest accuracy and reliability, but also to ensure that the solution you choose is OIML approved.



Measurement range


The measurement capabilities of dimensioners are often listed as length, width and height. For example, competitors’ pallet dimensioners can measure anywhere from 72” x 72” x 96” all the way up to 132” x 96” x 108”. Resolution 4’s standard object dimensions start at 30cm x 30cm x 30cm and go up to 240cm x 240cm x 240cm, however custom sizes are available.


As to be expected, larger and custom dimensioners will tend to be more expensive, so it will work out well to know exactly what size you need before deciding which is best for you. To get the most out of the pallet dimensioning solution you invest in, as a rule of thumb, it should be able to measure anywhere from 90% to 100% of the freight you handle.



Integration with your Warehouse Management System


Data is invaluable to any business, it’s the key to increasing efficiency and therefore profitability. Investing in dimensioning equipment that captures and stores data is the best tool for allowing you to assess and improve your warehouse operations.


Resolution dimensioners not only store the captured dimensioning data, they will also integrate with any warehouse management system. Using an easy to use API, minimal work is needed to create a seamless link between the dimensioner and your preferred management system such as Shipstation or Getbyrd, meaning that any data they capture during operation is instantly accessible via your computer, tablet or smartphone.
