Axiom Hall: 1 Stand: F14
Tote Weigh Checking Cell for Home Tech Store Replenishments

Axiom has designed and built the cell to check the weights of filled and sealed totes prior to despatch for retail replenishment of home tech products. The high value of some of these products requires higher levels of traceability than lesser value items.

The cell is designed around Axiom's own zero-pressure ZLP conveyors. Filled and sealed tote bins containing home tech products are loaded according to the manifest from the WMS. This manifest also provides a target weight for the complete shipment.

Each tote has a unique licence-plate barcode which is associated on the WMS with the order. Completed totes are loaded on one of two induct legs. The totes index under a SICK code scanner, from the reading, the Axiom system will recall the target weight against that tote. The tote is weighed utlising a Mettler-Toledo integrated weigh bench.

Depending on whether the tote meets the target weight and the barcode can be read, the tote will pass through the cell to the packing area.

If a tote should fail on either criteria, the electric side-transfer units will pass the totes to a central QC area for rectification. At the meeting point from the two streams, is a manual ball-table, utilising AWAYSE supplied ball units. 


Let's talk....

We'd love to help solve your material handling challenges.

IWLEX Exhibitors say :

IWLEX Exhibitors say :

  • "We’ve never seen a show like it! Within six minutes of the inaugural IWLEX (Inside Warehouse & Logistics Exhibition) opening, we had our first inquiry in the bag. The two days in May at the Telford International Centre went on to be the most successful trade show we have attended in terms of deals created at the event itself and immediately afterward."
    Hi-Level Mezzanines Ltd
  • “We thoroughly enjoyed our time at IWLEX. It is a valuable exhibition for companies looking for the highest quality visitors. Visitor numbers may be lower than at other exhibitions, simply because the organisers have done a fantastic job in screening out time-wasters! Everyone who came onto our stand was a motivated buyer and we have had several high-quality leads since the exhibition. We recommend IWLEX to anyone looking for relevant leads within the world of warehousing and logistics. Thank you, Justin and Nairn!”
