This technology, used in the camps in Europe, is beginning to gain strength in the Iberian Peninsula
The technology used in logistics continues to grow to improve warehouse efficiency and performance. If this does not happen, the current processes would be significantly slower and the costs even higher. The main focus of software developers is on the accounting and logging platforms, but there are other loopholes that can be exploited.
This is mobile weighing:
It is a technology capable of weighing and registering products, shortening processes and facilitating management. Thanks to RAVAS, this technology comes to Spain from the Netherlands, where they have optimized the performance of this technology to ensure quality and durability of their mobile weighing products.
How does this technology work?
They have electric manual pallet trucks with mobile weighing, they are regular pallet trucks but able to measure the weight of the products they weigh.
Since many of the products in the warehouses are unloaded by the storage machines, RAVAS has developed special forks called iForks. These are wireless forks that are installed on warehouse machines and measure the weight of the products.
These pallet trucks and forks have Bluetooth and WIFI technology, so they connect to the warehouse’s logistics system, WMS or ERP and record the weights of each load instantly.
Does it really save time and money?
Since the weight of each load is calculated and recorded instantly, it is no longer necessary to go to the floor scale, which is located in a remote area of the warehouse. This saves on unnecessary transfers and avoids a breakdown between the different machines that need to weigh at the same time.
On the other hand, it is a control system that makes it possible to ensure that the correct order has been picked and that it actually contains the expected quantity of products. Sometimes it is used to show discrepancies between what the sender claims to have sent and what the recipient claims to have received. This ensures that products are not lost in transit.
