• SICK has created a number of DWS (Dimensioning-Weighing-Scanning) systems to enable courier, express, parcel, and postal service providers, as well as logistics centers to record all the data needed for their shipments (volume, weight, and identification).
    • All the relevant data for calculating freight or creating the freight documents can be recorded at the touch of a button.
    • The systems include the tried-and-tested volume measurement systems VMS510 or VMS520, a reliable static scale, and a hand-held scanner that records code information – all in one stable mechanical unit.
    • Each product in the DWS Static series is optimized for its specific application: the DWS510 Static for cuboid objects, the DWS520 Static for irregular shaped objects, and the DWS520 Static Extended for oversized objects like non-conveyables.
    • DWS Static is a universal solution that can be set up in just a matter of minutes. It can of course also be calibrated in accordance with OIML, MID, and NAWI standards.
