Pittsburgh, PA — Collecting and utilizing image, cube and weight data is vital to maximizing your distribution center investment in today’s e-commerce fast-paced automated world. It doesn’t make sense to rely on outdated methods of measuring and weighing every item in your warehouse then photographing it later. It is time-consuming and labor-intensive and cubing with a CubiScan scanner is costly, confusing and error prone. Thats why we developed our Flash mobile product scanner 3D imaging, cubing and weighing system or “Flash” for short.

Unlike the CubiScan Scanner, Flash captures cube and weight data while producing high resolution 3D e-commerce quality images. Utilizing the high resolution 3D e-commerce quality image, businesses can begin creating planograms for their warehouses, websites and retail stores. These images help retail stores design effective layouts with visual appeal and sell more product online by providing detailed images customers may interact and zoom into. Businesses simultaneously can utilize the cube and weight data to create databases of products that help sell every square foot of space in their warehouse(s) and retail store(s). The cube and weight data is also exploited to gain tighter inventory control, with more accurate stock-levels, and helps reduce stock outs by knowing the units available and the units needing replenishment. Flash decreases the number of touches needed in a warehouse by providing a high resolution 3D quality image and cube and weight data simultaneously so you can run your business more efficiently and effectively.

With IAM Robotics Flash scanner your cubing process becomes completely automated, quickly transferring 3D image, cube and weight data to your warehouse management system improving operational space while increasing your efficiency and profitability. The Flash system is easy to use and integrates into your Warehouse Management System. The system’s modular design allows the user to quickly photograph, scan, weigh, approve and move to the next product without any set up or extra computers needed.

The Flash scanner has a portable power supply system, visual built in touch display and handheld barcode scanner and comes with a mobile cart platform with a transportable charging station, making Flash the best mobile 3D image, cubing and weighing and identification platform on the market. Wirelessly connecting to your warehouse management system without the need of a PC, data is stored and electronically transmitted by batch or in real-time to your warehouse management or shipping system.

The typical warehouse slotting exercise, carton selection routine or frayed manifesting function requires most if not all items in a facility to be measured and weighed. With thousands of stock keeping units to be handled these tasks can be overwhelming, but with the Flash scanner you can quickly and effortlessly bring the scanner to the freight and move through the warehouse aisles photographing, measuring and weighing everything in the distribution center. Once accurate cube and weight data is collected on the items in the warehouse the Flash scanner can be easily relocated to receiving areas to measure any new items as they arrive at the distribution center.

Always keeping the warehouse management system product or item master file accurate and up-to-date. Operating the Flash scanner is fast, fun and easy, the system straightforward design requires no training and operates with a lightning fast user-friendly software interface program called “Spark”. Items in your distribution center are measured in seconds simply by scanning a product ID verifying the measurements on the LCD touch screen display and accepting the data by using the interface. Our Flash scanner software solution organizes and electronically transfers data in a number of formats and transfer modes. We offer a customized interface to fit your specific data collection and transfer needs and have developed interfacing capabilities that are unmatched in the industry.

Our Flash scanner is a powerful yet easy-to-use tool for improving  your warehouse, retail and website efficiency. A single operator using a Flash scanner can identify, photograph, cube, weigh and transmit data at well over 150 items per hour. With a capacity of 1.5 cubic feet and 3D accuracy of one tenth of a centimeter, it is both powerful and accurate. IAM Robotics has over 80 years of experience focusing exclusively on developing the most state-of-the-art automated robotics systems in the market.
