Rice Lake, Wis.—Rice Lake Weighing Systems will be in attendance at ProMat 2015, displaying solutions for the material handling and logistics industry. Held March 23rd through the 26th at Chicago’s McCormick Place, ProMat 2015 attendees will discover the latest innovations in the industry from more than 800 exhibitors. Rice Lake will be showcasing their comprehensive selection of material handling and shipping solutions at booth 3550, including the CLS Cargo Lift Scale for seamless cargo weighing on board a forklift, as well as Rice Lake’s newest innovative dimensioning product, iDimension™.

The CLS lifts profits and lowers logistic expenses by allowing forklift operators to weigh, transfer and collect weight data in one efficient operation. The CLS saves operator time, equipment costs and eliminates the middle step of off-loading cargo on a floor scale to capture weight. Essential for warehouse material handling and shipping needs, the CLS offers real-time data transmission from scale to indicator to front office. Wireless local area network communication from the indicator directly to the warehouse management system delivers real-time, accurate information and documentation.

Rice Lake’s iDimension instantly captures and calculates the dimensions of packages, flats, polybags, tubes and irregular shapes to ensure freight compliance and avoid revenue-loss from miscalculated dimensions. In an industry leading 0.2 seconds and within 5 millimeters of accuracy, iDimension can capture dimensions, bar codes and OCR data from parcels placed anywhere in its zone of interest work area. Its free API allows users to interface with the system to retrieve dimensions, weight, a low-resolution image and more valuable data using a simple HTTP request and XML parsing method. Installed easily over existing conveyors and workstations, iDimension optimizes time and throughput.

Located at booth 3550, Rice Lake welcomes ProMat 2015 attendees to stop by the booth and experience live product demonstrations of both iDimension and CLS, and to ask any questions about their comprehensive line of material handling and logistics solutions.
