The Measure-Almost-Anything Solution
The CubiScan 325 is the universal measure-almost-anything solution. A static cubing system, it employs sophisticated, next-generation sensing and infrared technology to measure and weigh irregular-shaped parts, components and boxed items—including the irregularly-shaped car parts stocked by Burson.
As Gibson explains, there were a couple of business triggers that led to Burson’s investment in a CubiScan. “Firstly, the dimensional accuracy and records we had for our products weren’t all that robust. We needed a way to improve this data. One would normally expect suppliers to provide details around their products, but a number of our suppliers didn’t have readily available, sophisticated data on product weight or size. So, Burson needed a way to gather this data accurately, reliable and in a timely manner,” said Gibson.
“Importantly, we wanted technology that was easy-to-use, and made capturing all this data simple. We have over 150,000 SKUs across our range of products—that’s a lot of data.”
“We haven’t been disappointed. From the time the CubiScan unit was installed, everything has been straightforward. You literally put the object in, place the head over the object, check that the dimensions have been captured, and confirm. It’s a piece of cake—a really simple piece of gear to use. It’s all been quite easy and seamless,” said Gibson.
