Mobile Dimensioning Excitement Builds at ProMat 2023
Last week brought the long-awaited return of ProMat, the industry-leading event for manufacturing and supply chain professionals seeking the newest technological advancements. After four years away, attendees and exhibitors alike flocked to the MobileDemand booth to see the revolutionary, mobile dimensioning software, xDIM, in action.
Running on a Microsoft Surface Pro 8 encased in the Designed for Surface® certified rugged xCase with an Intel® RealSense™ 3D camera, the xDIM software showed it’s a true dimensioning workhorse, spending all 4-days capturing box dimensions in under a second! With a simple point-and-click of the tablet aimed at a box, visitors saw how truly fast and easy it is to use xDIM.
Booth visitors also saw a sneak peak of the upcoming xDIM updates: mobile dimensioning of pallets and irregular items, commonly referred to as uglies.
- Irregulars: xDIM for irregular items and other non-cuboidal objects captures dimensions via an innovative bounding box outline of an item and can combine multiple objects into a single bounding box. Ideal for companies needing dimensions of padded envelopes and other non-box items or companies needing to determine accurate box size for objects such as furniture.
- Pallets: xDIM for pallets is a revolutionary software that captures dimensions of standard, cuboid shaped and mixed pallets in seconds. The xDIM software interface includes options to include or exclude the pallet from payload measurements as well as preselection of pallet sizes.
Visitors also caught the chance to see the all-new xScale S200 pair to the xDIM interface via Bluetooth. The completely portable smart scale is lightweight, compact and designed for personal portability. Visitors got to try out opening the collapsible scale to the innovative Y-shape on which items are placed for weighing plus try the belt holster, ensuring the scale is conveniently available wherever it’s needed.
Further adding to the xDIM software interface is the ability to include barcode data. MobileDemand conveniently offers multiple scanning options depending on consumer needs: integrated tablet scanners, xScanHandle G200 and wearable scanners from ProGlove. Each scanner provides flexible configuration options with a variety of short to ultra-long-range scanners depending on use case.
