ScanTape Handheld Dimensioner Increases Processing Volume

Mettler Toledo's new handheld, mobile dimensioning device, quickly and accurately measures parcels and pallets anytime, anywhere.

OSLO, Norway METTLER TOLEDO is pleased to launch its convenient new parcel and pallet measuring device CNS110 ScanTape. Replacing a traditional tape measure, ScanTape eliminates manual data entry, offering greater ease and accuracy for transport and logistics personnel. The time savings that result can significantly enhance productivity — an important benefit for load planning and revenue recovery in industries where processing volume equals profits.

Usable at any point in goods-transfer processes, ScanTape represents an efficient, paper-free measuring procedure. And while it is ideal for pick-up or reclassification of pallets or packages to recover revenue in high-volume situations, it is also an excellent choice for smaller-volume centers that want to automate the measurement process without significant monetary investment.  

ScanTape has a very short payback time. By checking the dimensions of parcels and pallets, transport companies recover revenue that quickly covers the cost of investment in anywhere from one week to 90 days, depending on how it is used and whether or not the customer already checks dimensions manually using a tape measure or yard stick.

ScanTape is robust. Its durable rubber cover and 1.5-meter-drop protection makes it ideal industrial applications, while a Li-ion battery allows for two days of heavy use before recharge. Bluetooth data transfer and barcode reading capabilities also mean a complete parcel data profile can be sent wirelessly from a floor, forklift or bench scale to a PDA, PC or printer.
