Measure, Weigh and Identify Objects

MONK’s installation partnership with SICK means we can provide class leading weighing, measuring and product identification conveyors at speeds of up to 6,000 items per hour.

Our in house software capability means we can offer a complete solution including installation, setup and full communications with your warehouse IT system. When each parcel is scanned we will provide:

  • Item Measurements (Height, Width and Length)
  • Item Weight
  • Barcode or QR code (1D or 2D) reading information

MONK install and setup the SICK DWS Dynamic system, which is the right choice for nearly any master data collection requirement to automate sorting, storage and conveying. The efficient system will improve your data collection along with increasing turnover per parcel. Data can also be used to route parcels to specific areas or bins.

SICK is a leading manufacturer of intelligent sensors and sensor solutions for industrial applications.

MONK’s high-performance DWS systems from SICK will save time and money. DWS can be integrated into our conveyor system or used as a stand-alone solution. SICK’s modular expansion stages and common system controllers, ensure future-proofing and high system availability. Benefits include:
