Honeywell recently came out with a product unlike any other we’ve seen before. A product that will make your life easier when it comes to shipping and planning. The AutoCube 8200.
What is an AutoCube?
An AutoCube is a fixed electronic device mounted on a stand or wall that measures the length, width, and height of an object in seconds. Just connect the AutoCube to a host computing device, which also hosts the software application, via USB cable.
Why We Love the AutoCube for Warehouses and Distribution Centers
Although the Autocube is a great product for many industries, we see a huge benefit of using it in warehouses and distribution centers. With information about the dimensions of products, you will be able to optimize warehouse space. And, you’ll be able to get the information quickly and accurately. Your staff will no longer have to manually take measurements which will eliminate the human error.
In addition to optimizing warehouse space, having accurate dimensioning data will also ensure optimal packaging. This will reduce packaging material as well as shipping costs. This is especially useful when dealing with the most popular shipping companies who send bills for inaccurate measurements. This is also useful if you have your own trucks. You will be able to load your trucks faster and fuller.
Key Features of the AutoCube
There are many reasons why we think AutoCube is a great piece of technology, especially for warehouses and distribution centers. Some key features of the AutoCube include:
- Accuracy of 5mm – certified for commerce.
- Color image capture of what’s being measured. Useful to address damage claims and shipping discrepancies.
- Measures items as small as 4 x 4 x 4 up to 47 x 39 x 27.5 (39″ cubed).
- Includes a software wedge for simple integration.
- SDK & API for integration.
