Integrated DWS with Automated Sortation Systems

Efficiently used in automated warehouses where seamless integration of sorting and measurement processes is crucial. DWS functionality is integrated into automated sortation systems, allowing for simultaneous sorting and measurement of packages.

Seven scan tunnels
1D, 2D, and RFID

Our DWS systems utilize laser technology to measure the length, width, and height of packages with precision. As packages move through the system, lasers automatically scan and capture the dimensional data of each item.

How We Integrate

Analyze Data

The system verifies weight and dimension data against predefined parameters, ensuring accuracy. Mainway Handling’s DWS systems provide data analytics capabilities, allowing for insights into shipping patterns, packaging efficiency, and compliance metrics.

Dimensioning, Weigh, and Scan

As items move through the warehouse, they undergo scanning and identification processes. This can involve barcodes, RFID tags, or other tracking mechanisms. Mainway Handling’s advanced scanning technology ensures accurate identification of each item in real-time.

Conveyor and Sortation Equipment

Mainway Handling integrates cutting-edge conveyor and sortation equipment into the process. Automated conveyors and sorters carry items to their designated locations with precision. This minimizes manual handling, reduces the risk of errors, and increases overall throughput.

Real-Time Tracking and Reporting

Throughout the sortation process, Mainway Handling’s systems provide real-time tracking and reporting. This visibility allows for monitoring the status of items, identifying potential issues, and making data-driven decisions for continuous improvement.
