By letting the pallet truck scale count for you, human errors are avoided and handling speed in order picking and in checking shipments is raised.
More and more companies specialise in the production of custom made parts and subsystems, which are used by other companies in the assembly of their finished product. Thus material flows in supply chains in the automotive industry mainly consist of parts shipments. Parts that are counted continuously: at order picking, shipping and at goods reception. Since many of these shipments are just-in-time deliveries, shipping the correct amounts is of major importance.
Counting parts, fast and without errors
The mobile scale translates the measured weight into a quantity, using the per part piece weight. This piece weight can either be entered manually or sampled automatically by the scale. The display shows the actual number of parts on the pallet and how many remain to be picked. And of course your mobile counts for you wherever it is logistically attractive to do so: in the warehouse, during stocktaking, at goods reception while offloading lorries, or in the shipping department.
