SICK DWS Under Commissioning

Axiom GB Stand: D23

As part of a courier cross-docking cell undergoing installation & commissioning in Chicago, Axiom GB looked to SICK's market leading expertise in dimension, weighing & scanning (DWS) technology to record the data of parcels and packages passing from the induct.

The cross-docking cell is specified to run a maximum of 6000 parcels per hour for categorisation; re-label and sort for the intended onward courier.

The parcels are manually loaded on three inducts, the cell merges to form a consistent single stream of gapped parcels.  These run through the SICK DWS equipped with 5-sided scanning.  The barcode on the packages is read and sent with the volumetric and weight data via the Axiom GB system to the customer for verification.  The customers' cloud based software returns if the package is good or an exception, before passing for re-labelling for the final destination.

Re-labelled packages will pass over an Axiom GB Sliding Shoe Sorter, to be installed in phase 2, to sort by courier.

The induct and SICK DWS are undergoing commissioning at present.

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!”
